Keowee Expert Blog 70’s, Rain, and Snow
We’ve seen it all this week around Lake Keowee as the weather has run the gamut. One day we’re thinking about taking out the jet skis, the next we need a Jon Boat just to get around the roads then the next you need a sled to slide through the snow. Ah! Another February in South Carolina. The kids don’t know what to do as they try to figure out the best way to take advantage of all of the year’s weather in a single week. My car is packed with various pull-overs, jackets, rain parkas and even ski pants as I try and be prepared for whatever the weather throws at us with the proper attire.
Last week was a tough one around the area as we saw more than 8 inches of rain come down in one day leading to area flooding in low lying regions along with damage to some roads and bridges and even a day off of school for the kids. That was followed on Saturday by a few inches of snow making the ground highly saturated. We expect rain almost every day this week so no drying anytime soon.
Fortunately we were able to take some folks on tours to check out homes and lots and even wrote up an offer with another possible. It’s crazy and awesome (crazawesome?). The new listings we took last week saw really quick activity, as well. We expect this to continue to increase over the next few weeks as we are now ascending to the peak of the 2020 selling season.
