She’s a’coming, folks, and she looks like a whopper!

Corvair content - the Shop where the Glenn Corvair is getting bodywork is almost dead on center of the projected path - southern edge of the the Great Dismal Swamp, just across the North Carolina border.

Governor has ordered mandatory evacuations for all residents living in “Zone A” - lowest lying areas. Our home is in Zone B but I have several friends who live in Zone A. All schools and many business are closing tomorrow.

I managed to get my 20 year old generator running - it’s come in handy several times over the past score years. Hopefully we don’t need it, but best to be prepared.

All local business are sold out of generators, gas cans, propane, large batteries, etc.

The navy sent all seaworthy ships out today.

Makes little difference whether earthquakes/hurricanes/tornados/fires/floods/blizzards; the outcome for some is bleak. Good luck to everyone in the Carolinas.

Well, if the Hurricane is strong enough, you might not need to travel.
Florence might just deliver the beach to you in Pennsylvania.grinning smiley

It must be very serious, all the Walmarts have closed, they closed Monday night and the storm isn't arriving until Thursday night, I think that's a first for me.

I spoke to my Parents who live adjacent to Hilton Head Island just off of Interstate 95 in South Carolina this afternoon and they informed me that for them, the Mandatory Evacuation has been lifted.
The one way roads exiting the area will no longer happen, and the threat seems to have disappeared or at least been downgraded for them.
Unfortunately I can't say this is good news for those who are still in the path of potential danger. I hope for the best for all concerned.

Even though the potential for serious flooding is probably low, I could not afford the small chance so I have elevated everything in the garage as a precaution. Alice is up on the lift, the engine is back up on the engine stand and the suspension parts are elevated on the hydraulic cart.

We got RV parked in Indianapolis. Weather in Savannah is not going to be good the next few days. Lots of rain and winds gusting up 60 knots. We got everything secured and prepped for power outage before we left. My sisters and their families got out of Jacksonville NC and relocated to Anderson SC. We have done all we can and know our friends and families are safe. So time to enjoy the Vair show in Indianapolis and the vacation. Also meeting people during the next week.

It's started getting close to land, it's starting to suffer, the rain looks like it's letting up a lot and the eyewall is starting to get weak as well.
TV people are still wide open. I'm hoping it falls apart as it hits land, sometimes they do, the signs are there.
TV guy say,"don't focus on the storm weakening". Translation: Keep your TV on me.

Hurricane no more, winds fell below 74.5 probably about 3:00 eastern time, officially a tropical storm with 69 mph winds at the 5:00 report. Thankfully the forecasters were way high, the rain is no where near what they predicted, I heard 40 inches mentioned, and the winds have decreased to a non-catastrophic level. I definitely feel for those on the NC coast, they've had this thing for an eternity but it doesn't look to me like it's going to devastate both Carolinas like the TV people were telling us. On my way to work this morning when most could see the storm was weakening, the 'meteorologist' proclaimed, "we expect the storm to maintain a cat 1 hurricane status for the next 24-36 hours". Nope, about 10 hours, and half of that it was a very weak 1. Thanks for the prayers, they worked, keep them coming, still a lot of wind and rain and cleanup to go.
