I don’t have a particularly remarkable entry planned for today, just an observation: a huge chunk of the state of South Carolina, in spite of it being named "South" Carolina, is actually further north than places in North Carolina.

The entire shaded area of South Carolina rests at latitudes further north than the southernmost tip of North Carolina where the two states share a common border termination at the Atlantic Ocean. That’s about half the state, including major cities like Columbia and Greenville!
North Carolina does provide a northern umbrella over the entirety of South Carolina so I suppose the names of the two states are actually appropriate after all. Even so I find it curious that a person could stand in many different areas of South Carolina and still be further north than large swaths of North Carolina.
