    I'm in the path. I'm east of Raleigh. After Matthew in 2016, I'm NOT looking forward to this. We had some relatively minor damage but lots of flooding around the house and neighborhood. We are on a hill but could easily get stuck. I'm a firefighter so this will be a rough work week. Gonna try to get Saturday off so I can be home with the family.... praying for the "steering currents" to push it away and maybe stay at sea..... miracles can happen, right???

    I will be finishing up preps here today. All I really need is fuel for the generators.

    @Mr_BC... Stay safe and bless you. Hopefully it will all be light rescue work.

    EDIT: Since Hampton Zone A is under evac orders I got to stay home.

    Got back from Myrtle Beach @ 0500 this morning. Miz Diane and I are renovating a vacation/retirement home there...my brother and I were there to do some Tarpon fishing (Sunday morning). Sunday afternoon, we bought all the plywood and Monday we spent the day hanging it up. Looks good, power off, water off, etc. Fingers crossed!

    We were originally going to rest Monday night and leave Tue morning but decided to get a jump on the evac traffic and left at 6pm Monday. Long 11hr drive back to Alabama but drove in shifts. Evac traffic was very light...no problem.

    My niece, her husband, mother and step-father all live south of Myrtle beach and are waiting to make their evac decision till today. I'm hoping they are already on the road. Traffic today is probably going to be brutal.

    It is far better to evacuate and be wrong - than not to evacuate and be wrong .

    Evacuating for storms is a funny thing. Not always logical, in either direction

    Good luck. I'm in Virginia Beach. Looks like we will get a lot of rain and storm surge so there will be some flooding but it looks like you guys will bear the brunt of it. Good luck my friend
