    Hoping my family in central NC will be ok...last time this happened w/ Fran a 200-year old oak almost killed my parents and smashed their house. If it wasn't old school brick and 10x10 timber they'd be dead.

    As it was it pinned my mother to her bed, smashed her skull, and took 18 months to rebuild the house.

    Well we are not getting it too badly in SC.. Tropical Storm force winds.. maybe.. in the 90's Hurricane Bob took a very similar track and when I lived on the South East New England coast.. that was a CAT-3 when it hit.. and that was bad.. My friends and family still live in the same area that the eye will be close to. I am concerned for them

    Unfortunately it's going to run right into my cousin's town in Virginia or at least that's the way it's looking. His house is just 3 blocks from the ocean.

    Yup, heading this way. It will be weakend by then, but 6-8 inches of rain will have my pump running non stop. If I loose power I may be shopping for a new furnace. I may go shopping for a generator tonight.

    ...was 3 blocks from the ocean.

    House and all is ready, **** is stored away and tied down. Though I dont expect much trouble from it, other than losing power for no reason cuz we always do.

    Two quick and hard 30 minute showers passed through....very calm out there now. "The calm before the storm". Should be raining heavy tonight, and the storm should be hitting us by noon tomorrow. Got everything brought in last night. Mowed the lawn late last night, getting done around 10pm. (gotta love headlights on the John Deere).
