  • Hurricane

    Sure hope hope they are wrong about the storm. Sounds like a bad one. Scott, be safe and anyone else in its path. Have no idea what will happen here.

    Let's hope everyone can get through this with minimal damage and inconvenience.
    Went through Charley when I was in Orlando and saw what it could do and seen the aftermath of several tornadoes here in Indiana and the only good thing about hurricanes is the advance warning. Neither storm is good for the nerves.

        I heard the “train roaring”when Isabel ripped through here quite a few years ago. She took down one tree that clipped the corner of our house, another fell on a neighbors shed and we removed two others later that were too close for comfort. We get hit by a lot of Nor’easters that do as much or more damage than a hurricane. I’m eyeing two trees now that should come down.

          I am currently directly in the projected path. I am lucky I am about 150 miles from the projected landfall site of Wilmington, NC. Though I live on a large lake l don't have to worry about flooding. Just lose of power and falling trees. Thanks for your prayers. I will keep you posted.

              Prayers for everyone in the path of this storm. Rolf, I saw Greenville was also on the direct landfall list. Hopefully, it will not linger as they are predicting. Even though we are on the outer fringes of the storm, the storm surge is the problem. I really don't know how much more rain and runoff we can take. I'm sure we're approaching 30" since June, 17" in July alone. On the upside, it wasn't snow!!!

                As it looks at this moment, we might be in for 12" of rain and strong winds, a combination that topples trees. Flooding is not a problem on my property, but could wash out the roads getting back here. We're just praying God will keep everyone safe through all this. Scott, if you need a place to shelter quickly our guest room is there for you and Sharon. God bless brother.

                  Betty, my step son is just north of the Pitt- Greenville airport. The flood waters from the Tar river get uncomfortably close. This will be a nasty. For all in the affected area please keep us posted.

                    Looks like it shifted but that area is still in direct hit with possibly stalling. Wherever it goes it will be awful. I thought of June this morning when the weather guy tried to say Southern North Carolina and got all messed up. Continued prayers for everyone in the path.

                      To early to cancel the hurricane party but it now appears the worst will pass 150 or more miles from me. We should only get some of the outer rain bands.

                          Hope everyone has made it through ok. Rolf, what about your stepson? Scott? We are supposed to get some rain today and possibly tomorrow. Depends on what forecast you look at.

                            Betty,
                            He is fine. There is some flooding of the Tar river but it did not reach him.

                              Happy to hear that. I guess you got the storms that passed through here during the night. Hope you didn’t have any problems.

                                Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                                HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
