Consider This - Hurricane Earl

Horry County, SC - By Ted Fortenberry - bio | email

WMBF Chief Meteorologist Rob Hatchell put it best when he asked the question, "Is this Labor Day weekend or Thanksgiving?" making the point that we have a lot to be thankful for with Hurricane Earl bypassing the South Carolina coast.

Consider This: To reinforce how thankful we should be all you need to do is watch any of the five year anniversary specials detailing the impact of Katrina on the Mississippi Coast and New Orleans area. This is also a great opportunity to make sure you are prepared in the event we are not so fortunate with future storms.

We dodged a major storm this week and we will have beautiful weather for the Labor Day holiday weekend as we wrap up a very strong summer season.

Let's be thankful for our good fortune and remain hopeful that this good luck continues for years to come.
