Winds that could capsize small boats and cold that could kill budding crops have prompted multiple weather alerts across the region through Wednesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a lake wind advisory and freeze watch for 16 counties in central Georgia and South Carolina.

The coverage area includes Richmond, Columbia, McDuffie, Burke, Chesterfield, Kershaw, Lexington, Richland, Lee, Aiken, Sumter, Barnwell, Orangeburg, Calhoun, Clarendon, and Bamberg counties.

The lake wind advisory is scheduled to remain in effect until 8 p.m. today, and the freeze watch will be overnight into Wednesday morning.

The weather service expects conditions to be mostly breezy through 8 p.m., with winds moving west at 15 to 25 mph.

The agency added that gusts could reach 30 mph.

Boaters are advised to stay off the water, and farmers are encouraged to cover sensitive vegetation.

Pam Tucker has issued a call to all CC residents to

donate life vests to those who are exercising their constitutional rights to be "Ignorant at the Lake". A concert is planned for the Lady Antebellum Pavil(l)ion to augment the federal grant fund application. Depending on the response and monies raised, a new non profit 501(c)3 could be chartered in CC and staffed with a minimum of three six figured salary directors. Lee Anderson has graciously volunteered to be one of the directors.

Bill Jackson initially offered to give his prime real estate property at Washington and Gibbs roads for a permanent non profit facility, until a young friend reminded Bill he had sold it to KIA of Augusta. Sarcasm 101

Do something, somebody.....

I'm getting sick of this winter weather long after winter is supposed to be history.
