I'm most concerned for the giant water oak in my back yard. If that thing falls it'll take out the back end of my house.

Cut down some branches. Chances are your tree will lose most of them anyway. Take down the heavier/lower ones.

Christ man, anyone who can defend chucking paper towels at desperate people in a place where 3000 people died has to be just as sociopathic as their idol.

You gotta admit the man has good form. 30 degree angle, steady guide hand, holding his follow-through. I'd like to see a FT contest between him and Obama.

UNC and NC State have cancelled classes for Thurs. and Fri. I think that's only happened a handful of times since the Civil War.

From a friend of mine in Eastern NC:

Quote:
Keep this in mind hurricane Matthew was a cat 2 when it skirted the coast of NC
Hurricane Florence is a cat 4 pushing a cat 5 and is expected to make a direct hit and move inland.
This is NO JOKE folks things are going to get real.

Matthew caused massive flooding in Eastern NC.

Got plenty of dry goods, bottled water, batteries, flashlights, candles,a couple of battery powered fans, charcoal for the grill,all electronics are charged and vehicles are gassed up. Damn, waiting for a hurricane is like being stalked by a turtle.

I lost power for a whole week last year and it was only a cat 1 for us. If it's a cat 4 or 5 when it hits you...well just take care..it won't be fun. Things will get back in order after a few weeks. If you're in a democrat/blue area it could be a death trap..get out.
