MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - Bustling cities like Boston and New York City have grown quite as thousands of people hunker down for the potential record-setting storm. Although we're hundreds of miles apart, there are some people in Charleston who are still keeping a close eye on what's happening up North..

Lauren Harnish anxiously sat by her computer tonight, Skyping her sister-in-law who lives in Maine.

"They are saying up to two feet right now. That's crazy! They live in a very remote area so there are a lot of trees. We hear about the heavy snow and lots of snow and we get concerned," said Harnish.

Harnish and her family, who moved down South to beat the cold weather, are happy they won't be shoveling tomorrow.

"I keep sending screen shots of our weather compared to their weather just to rub it in a little," said Harnish.

Although happy snowfall won't hit the Lowcountry, Harnish and her family just want to make sure their loved ones are safe up North.

For those here in Charleston who still call the Northeast home, they'll have to wait until at least Wednesday to get back. Flights are expected to be grounded through tomorrow, with some areas even restricting road travel to protect drivers.
