  • George and Florence

    I hope George has either driven away from his place, or has a Noah's Ark standing by. George don't dive.

      Good luck to you and yours George, although I'm sure, being a soldier, you'll have made a plan and be well ahead of this situation, stay safe.

          It's actually headed about 150 miles north of us, guys. Doesn't mean it won't be a PITA, but the wind shouldn't get over about 50mph. Mostly rain. If the power goes out for more than a day, though, we're headed to south Georgia. Meanwhile, we're battening down the hatches. Got food. Got water. Got pissed this thing showed up during a very busy time for us.

          Thanks for the thoughts, though. They are very appreciated. I hope they aren't needed. Will know in 48 hours.

            Having grown up in New Orleans, I've been through a bunch of hurricanes. We never evacuated and always got lucky. Been away for 20+ years, so I wasn't there for Katrina, but my brother and other relatives down there were very glad they evacuated. I hope they aren't needed too, but it doesn't hurt to take precautions.

                        Well, guys, we dodged a bullet here. Florence was a Cat 1 when she came ashore and a tropical storm not long thereafter. We're on the south (mild) side of the storm so what we're currently getting as it wanders past about 100mi north of us is some heavy breeze and a farmer's rain. Huge difference from my last big hurricane. Having counted it up, I've been through at least ten major hurricanes in my life and a thousand-year flood. I'm getting too old for this.
