That's a Wrap Folks!

This time next week, the gifts will be given, living rooms will still be a disaster, but the spirit and goodwill of the holidays will be lingering in our hearts. Looking back on this year, it has been tough. We have been through a lot as a community.

We started off on the wrong foot with snow that refused to go away. Dump trucks turned into snowplows and we all panicked a little thinking life would never get back to normal.

It did.

Spring and summer offered us nothing notable, but then came September. And boy did she come in – just like a wrecking ball.

Fortunately, Hurricane Florence didn’t hit us with the impact we were expecting; however, she did leave a momentous flood in her wake.  Weeks of traffic jams, roads and school closures, homes underwater, and so much more were dealt with on a daily basis – even another hurricane. During the worst of it, we saw a community come together and display what it means to be Conway and Horry Strong.

On a different note, let’s talk Lake Busbee. If I am honest, it has been a process – empty, full, empty, full and now somewhere in between. We are determined to help it return to wetlands and that will continue on into next year..

Regardless of the times we have faced, our communities have grown stronger and have shown what it is like to work together as a team.

Santee Cooper employees are your neighbors and friends. We have been right here, standing beside you through it all – and you have been there standing beside us. We can only hope that next year will bring us better luck. We can’t wait to ring in the New Year with you.

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Oh…and if you need us anytime, give us a call at 1-800-804-7424 or go online at We are here to serve.
