The Katrina effect

Hurricane watches are not uncommon this time of year on the Carolina coast. But this is the first time I remember the local schools closing for a puny tropical storm that's sitting off the coast and is unlikely to a) get much stronger or b) directly hit the South Carolina coast. The schools in coastal Horry and Georgetown Counties are closed tomorrow, as are the courthouses, the county offices, and the local colleges. Seems a little ridiculous at this point.
