This is an actual tweet made by an actual Texas state legislator in response to the public showing up to the Texas State Capitol building in favor of a filibuster of an abortion bill. Regardless of your views on the bill itself, I think all decent people can agree that the public showing up to a public place to express a political opinion in a nonviolent manner is the exact inverse of “terrorism.” Shameful.
I feel like a broken record on the weather side these days mentioning storms every day. This year has just been utterly ridiculous for rainfall (33″ as of today) and for the second time in two weeks downtown Charleston flooded again after thunderstorms packing 1-3″/hr rain rates trained over Charleston, one after the other, right at time of high tide, which also coincided with the evening rush. Makes for an awesome night!

I’m ready for a drier pattern…
Return of the #chswx blog!
An issue with nginx rewrite rules would not let my image uploads be great, but that’s all settled now. I’m looking to transition away from so much reliance on Twitter and switch to more of a live blog format during events (though weather Tweets won’t go away). The P2 theme lets me create a fully integrated environment to receive storm reports on a thread, which is awfully nice. Keep this page bookmarked as I’m going to try out a few cool things there. (Eventually, the whole chswx.us site will run on WordPress — stay tuned.)
