Looks like a big, big storm..

Keep those loved ones, pets and Fieros high and dry!

If anyone is in the area, drop us all a line and keep us posted on how things develop.

Best of luck!

Near Raleigh. Far enough inland to not be worried about the storm surge but wind and rain are still gonna be a problem. Just hoping the trees out back don't fall on us. Other than that, we can survive the usual power outages!

------------------
Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

We should get rain and some wind here but the eye is currently estimated to come ashore in lower NC. As large as this hurricane is, we should expect significant rain and some wind. I am about 120 miles from the coast, so no storm surge to worry about and have a house on a hill so no real possibility of flooding. May be some water in the basement but if I can get a deflector rigged up soon that issue should depart.

On the radio, they're predicting feet of rain, and the weather people are always accurate.

Just finished making room for my toys in my garage, and to make my wife happy I made space for her Fiat too!

As of right now it is down to a category 3 but you know how unpredictable nature is. Hopefully it is just rain and some wind.



This is an image of Florence's eye from NASA! I saw this image and it took me to 1977 when I was 10 years-old. Hurricane David killed 2000 people in my home town, Santo Domingo; The Dominican Republic. I still remember the sound of the wind and the pressure on my chest. There is something about being close to the eye that if you feel it you will never forget that feeling.

Let's hope for the best!

I went to Home Depot today and it looked like all they sold were generators. Im right by Lake Wylie so I think were safe from the eye, but maybe some wind and rain.

Just a little further north, on the southern tip of the Delmarva peninsular we are heaving a sigh of relief.

I've been through 10 hurricanes in 20 years here and we never take them for granted. We batten down the hatches as our SOP so we'll be bringing in the boat, lawn chairs and 8 million frickin' water cans that make my wife's life complete.

Rain isn't an issue. It's so flat here that the rain comes down, forms a sheet of water that flows into the bay, no channeling, which is destructive and much more of a problem inland.

The only real issue to worry about is a storm surge showing up at high tide. Back in '03 during Isabel a friend ended up with 3 feet of water in his house. We're a bit higher but it's something we watch carefully.

Meantime, we're praying for the Carolinas.
