    if anyone sees pieces of my townhouse, from Surf City, NC on Topsail Island, blowing around Ky, feel free to throw em in a dumpster. no need to return. :) that place is taking a beating from Florence. i'm 400 hundred miles away in maryland and we're getting SE humid winds already.

    So there you go. You might end up with a stand alone structure and beach front when this is all over with. Any crazy local neighbors say they were going to stick it out?

    i hope it's either unscathed or only the stilts left standing. don't know about any neighbors but all my inlaws are 20 miles inland and they are hunkered down to ride it out. depending on speed, it could dump up to 40" of rain. my BIL's have been picking corn round the clock since last Thursday. All the farmers pull together and help each other get their crops in. They also raise hogs (Duplin county is supposedly the largest hog producing county in the country) and chickens and they've been trying to get 10's of thousands of them loaded up and shipped out before the floods hit. Hundreds of hog lagoons (shit) will be flooded and will turn into an environmental mess. my wife has been begging her mom to come stay with us but she's afraid she couldn't get back home. Wifes great niece has a 12 day old baby, won't leave.

    7:30- just spoke to my MIL. she said around 2 AM is when their world starts getting turned upside down. windy and rainy now.

    We’ll keep em in our prayers. I’ve not paid much attention, my wife got an aunt lives just outside of Charleston. How bad is it supposed to get in that area?

    thank you so much, means a lot.
    not going to be as bad in Charleston, but i'm sure it will be a wild ride. if you catch the weather channel, my place is 20 miles north of Wilmington with the bullseye on it.

    My wife’s got an uncle that has several properties in Naples and my inlaws have a place in North Port (South Sarasota). We’ve survived a few south Florida scares and I’m sure there will be more to come.

    I talked to my BIL earlier, he lives on Mantio, came across the bridge to stay with a few friends that are having a Hurricane Party (They do this every time), he said today, the hurricane was sucking the water out of the sound.........They all started getting a lil nervous when the saw that.
