    Both of my wife’s brothers are located in Western NC. They should be ok, but will have to watch out for flooding and land slides. I hope everyone on the coasts in the path of this thing will follow the mandatory evacuations. For those riding it out, stay safe.

    "Looks like I picked a bad week to give up smoking.". Just kidding. I don't smoke. But I did pick a bad month to move to Outter Banks.

    I have friends in Wilmington and Shalotte. Not looking good for them .I'm in Va. Beach, three miles from the Atlantic, four from the Chesapeake Bay. For now it looks like we're on the northern fringe but you never know until it actually hits. I'm working on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel now. We have to get all our equipment off of there by Weds afternoon

    I travel for work. I left last Wednesday and won't be back for another week. Good news is the house is on stilts. That's where I left the LP.
    All projects and the Marshall are in storage. Crossing my fingers on the storage location.
    My vehicle is in Norfolk. Gotta cross my fingers there too. I see there are mandatory evacuations for Hampton Roads. Category 4 is nothing to fool with. If I were there, I'd head to Richmond.

    Luckily I'm on what counts for high ground in VB. Right by VBGH. I'm on the same power grid as the hospital so that's good news. My main concern is that I'm on the top floor of my condo building. As long as the roof holds I should be ok. I'm glad the big tree by my side of of the building was removed a few months ago. That one made me nervous. Good luck my friend

    We probably got 2 inches of rain yesterday. On top of what we've had all summer. I think our big issue will be storm surge more than wind

    when i lived in oklahoma and a big tornado was comin, id just try to run after it and catch it on foot......pretty impossible. i never caught one.
    and when i lived in florida and a big hurricane was comin, i got dollar signs in my eyes, because i did water damages for a living.

    Not there... or there.
    I remember Hugo. Lost power for about 7 days. Ground became so saturated that the tree in front of the house we lived in at the time fell over. It's roots could not hold it up anymore. That was the day I got a new skylight with some nice greenery in the house. Thank goodness the house we were renting had been made from block. The tree did move the wall at the top a couples inches. Now I live in a wood frame house with a 40 foot poplar in the front yard. Ground is saturated. House was designed for 85mph winds. I have thick woods all around but away from house as not to be a threat. The woods are a great wind break. River in back is up from the recent rain. I have to go get my generator out of my neighbors barn. The house he is finishing has no protection from the wind. When I get back tomorrow from Hampton it will be time to setup and get ready.
