Anyone here in Florence's path?

Sounds like quite a storm headed for the East coast.
Praying for safety.

No where close, but concerned about it. I don't like hurricanes on several levels.

Dlibbon, perhaps, and many other friends in Charleston
and other areas along the coast.

I'm scheduled to be in DC this Thursday. We'll see.

Add Irish Dane to the list. If this thing is as big as predicted, she'll still be plenty strong as she crosses over him and DL Jake.

Oh, and I bet your trip to DC gets rescheduled.

This is supposed to be one the strongest landfalls so far north in U.S. history. Oh, those precious Middle Belt Red Virginias. I wonder if whatever crops they have, have been harvested yet.

People are going nuts here buying all the milk, bread, eggs, bottled water, etc. You'd think they were calling for snow or something.... and it's a whole 3.5 hour drive from Greensboro to the coast. I'm not really worried.

Too early to harvest tobacco. Burley fields aren't even 6' yet and green as can be.

I lived in Myrtle Beach when Hugo hit. We evacuated to Charlotte (Monroe). Storm was still huge when it went over there. Sign fell on my car in the hotel parking lot. Transformers in Monroe were blowing up like fireworks. When the big ones come ashore that 200 mile buffer doesn't mean much because they keep on chugging.

From Weather Underground:

"Florence has rapidly intensified into a dangerous Category 4 hurricane and appears destined to strengthen even further as it heads towards the Southeast U.S. Coast. Florence is likely to make landfall on Thursday evening or Friday morning on the coast of North Carolina or South Carolina, and the odds continue to increase that Florence will stall on Friday and meander near or over the coast for several days, making the hurricane a devastating rainfall and coastal flooding threat."

Oh, dear Lord, You have left us in such a dangerous, precarious world. Hear our prayers for all those who will be in harm's way.

Would it be inappropriate to reach out to SmokingPipes and offer to take care of some of their tobacco for safekeeping?

I was in Army Basic Training on Fort Jackson. My Platoon had been very disappointing to the Drill Sergeants to the point that they decided we were unfit to sleep in the barracks we refused to clean to their satisfaction. Therefore, Garrison tent camping was ordered. We pitched our tents in the mowed grass in front of the barracks.

It was dress right dress tent to tent It almost looked Civil Warish, only in Olive Drab. We had no clue Hugo was a thing besides seeing the sky change as we perfected our tent lines.

All of us knew it was shenanigans but played the game until they were forced to tell us to tear it down on the double and get inside.

Good times.

Yeah, me too.
I think their big concern is going to be storm surge and flooding from the high amount of predicted rainfall.

My cousins close to Black Mountain said if I need to bug out head to their place.

I told them if it looks like mudslides, they should bug out and head to my place.

I have a room open. The drive sucks, but I have plenty of tobacco and hooch.
