All of you in the path of the storm ok? Has anyone heard from Kennith? He's probably in a waterproof bunker listening to expensive speakers.

I'm expecting his forthcoming lengthy review of whatever generator/chainsaw/pump/vacuum cleaner/hovercraft he used to deal with the aftermath of the hurricane.

My family is good over here in Goldsboro, we are expecting more flooding once the river crests but where we are is high and dry. New Bern just down the road got it a lot worse.

It never made it to Georgia as far as I can tell. All is well in Augusta.

Yup, not even rain around Savannah. Just a few wind gusts and temp variations last few days.

Son and family evacuated from Jacksonville, attempting to get back tomorrow. He was originally scheduled to deploy today.

All good here, her eye ran south of us by about 40 or so miles. Lots of trees down, no power, lots of flooding, no fuel, limited rations. Things are normal. We faired way better then most, the worst that happened to us was part of my fence blew out, fixed that today.

Probably 2 weeks until we are going to get the roads open because of the flooding.

We evacuated on Tuesday, but came back Thursday morning to ride her out when we heard it was going to be a cat2/1. Otherwise I think we would have been stranded in Columbia for 2 weeks.

Hope the others who are in the affected area are ok.

Nothing much here in Raleigh, but right outside Wilmnington I-40 is completely underwater. My parents live down there and evacuated last week, they still dont know when they will be able to get back there. These are pics of I-40

Serious flooding down there. Didn’t get much in the upstate but the Pee Dee region downstate is expected to get flooding for the next several days as the basin drains all the rain from NC

...I was for a little while, actually.

After that, I set out to solve problems.

Cheers,

Shit. I was totally planning on going over some of the facets of how... Nope. Not falling for it.

My generator does kick ass, though, and I have this really neat... Damn it man!

Cheers,

Kennith

Thats going to be a fun clean up too, the entire stretch is going to have mud all over it.

My buddy runs a quarry off of rte 53 just outside Burgaw. The road is under a lot of water, had to take a 5 mile boat ride to get to his quarry to check out the equipment.

I helped a buddy of mine clean his house out once the water from the New River receded. Water line was at 80 inches, dude lived in a ranch and lost pretty much everything. Him and his neighbor had to be rescued by boat. During Mathew the water only got within 200 meters from their house, this time it took 2 hours for the water to flood them out. Sucks.
