    Hopefully it will weaken or die out. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Don’t wish Ill will on anyone when it comes to hurricanes. While I hope it does minimal damage to S.C.....I hope for the best for our northern neighbors.

    I am in a different area from this hurricane, but the answer is no. I was promised yesterday that they will be here to put up the metal on Monday. I will post it under New Roof : Part Troi. Now back on topic. It looks more like North Carolina now with a possible drop to Catagory 3.
  • Just saw the latest NOAA update. Looks like there’s a potential bullseye on our place. Guess I’ll be heading that way tomorrow to button things up...

    We are very far inland so wind most likely won't be a big problem for us but local forecasters are talking about a lot of rain, local flash flooding and if we get any wind trees could be a problem once the ground is soaked. A more northern track would be better for us here in the mountains. Hopefully folks on the coast will get ready and run if told to.

    Here in Knotts Island NC we are prepping for the worst, hoping for the best. Such as, it weakens and moves thru quickly!

    Getting gas, water etc and making sure generators and chain saws will start.

    If ordered to evacuate, good luck, one road in and out (that may be flooded/closed) just to get to the south end of VA Beach. Then another hour or more to get to the 'parking lot' interstate.

    Just saw that they're starting mandatory evacuations for some coastal sections of NC.  Y'all stay safe out there!!!

    We stayed in a beach front home in the gulf a few years back when a CAT1 rolled through.......mistake that I'll never make again.  My curiosity was more than satisfied!!

    I just tested the chainsaw.  Going to pick up my generator from other house on the coast tomorrow.  Inland where we are (Richmond, or "Mecca" as Carolinians call it) we are predicting historic flooding and tropical storm winds on top of already saturated ground = widespread power outages from downed trees.

    They just closed schools for the rest of the week in SC to allow them to be converted to shelters. They’re not fooling around with this one.

    These kind of images always make me realize how tiny we are. Cause that Hurricane is what a few hundred, maybe 1,000 miles across? Yet the earth makes it look tiny. It's all perspective I guess.
