Perfect, I'm going to get splattered also, and my daughter is supposed to fly out of Charlotte sunday on the way back to Texas.

She'll probably make that flight, even more so if it's in the morning.
Looks like the Carolinas will be getting their drubbing on Monday

I'm about 150 miles NE of you right where the Blue Ridge Parkway crosses into Virginia. At least I'm not right under the red line like you are.

It won't be terribly bad where we are. Collect all the lawn furniture, grills, etc and put in garage, bring in potted plants that are outside, and we should be good.

ETA: Bad time to be a student at Camp Rudder...

Yeah, I'm sure it will just be an inconvenience up our way. I'm in a low spot between two ridges, so even the wind won't be too bad for me. Looks like our brethren down south are about to get the smackdown.

Deploying for hurricane relief effort. For the others going to help stay safe and do good work.

For those of you in the path of destruction stay safe and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

We call those hollers. Sounds like a good patrol base!

Could use a little rain here. But I hate to see it at the expense of what Fl is getting. This may make Andrew look insignificant.

I was gonna say down in a holler, but I knew some smartass would be along to call me a hayseed or something.

Where I live, the further down the holler you are, the badder of a motherfucker you are. Mine's the last house on the left.

We are set for about two weeks no out side help.

House is up to code, insurance is paid up.

The charts show the storm surge not too much of a factor, if it stays it's course. We're not quite 6 foot above SL.

This will not be a party, we expect a mess.

So, my twin brother is going to ride it out in his home about 20 miles SE of Punta Gorda.

Here's to hoping he fares well.

Looks like we will be hanging out in Concord, NC for a few days...two of our older boys are still up there any way, so it will be a good visit.

Fancy!

My place is available too if anybody gets displaced. I'm about a half hour from the 81/77 split on the VA side.

For anyone that lives in SC, starting tomorrow morning, they're shutting down one side of the interstate. The only way to go is out. Just a heads up, once that happens all of the last minute morons will be hauling ass. Might want to go now is planning on it.
