    Looks like we may dodge the bullet. We start mandatory A/B shifts tomorrow

    Over 2300 price gouging complaints in Florida. Water, gas, motels, just about everything. Hope the vendors stores are remembered after it is over.

    Uh...Yea...Happy for you guys in FL, but you have to stop sending hurricanes this way!  Looking like it might take the same path as Matthew...My day to relax yesterday turned in to a 12+ hour round trip to the coast to prep for Dorian...one boat tied tight to the lift and the other towed back home...

    Co-worker just came into the office and said that it is starting to sprinkle here in Wilson, NC.  Raining at the coast but not too much wind - yet.  Overnight tonight is probably the worst period for our area on the coast.  They are saying the eye may make its first US landfall about 25-30 miles from our house. 

    First world problems I guess.  We are lucky to have the place.  This is just one of the "costs" we have to pay for what we have...

    They closed our college for two days and the rain is starting.  We are inland a bit, so our problem might be river flooding as in the past.  Keeping our fingers crossed.

    Which college?  
  • YankeeManYankeeMan Posts: 2,244 ✭✭✭✭
    Edgecombe Community College.  All the colleges around the eastern part of the state closed.

    Yes they are...familiar with several of them...

    So far so good to the west...doesn't sound like it was as bad as Florence down east or as bad as it could have been.  It certainly was  still bad enough to do damage in the area.  We are hoping we can get to our place tomorrow to see how we fared.  Our neighbor lives there full time so he might be able to give us some info sooner.

    The outer banks got hit, but inland we have been fine.  Some heavy rain and some wind last night, everything pretty calm right now.
