Hurricane Dorian

For all my dear readers and friends in the path or have been in the path of Hurricane Dorian. Be safe and we shall meet again on the other side of the storm.

Eastern North Carolina is currently battling the outer bands of Dorian. Power has knocked off and thankfully came back on. Wind is picking up and the rain is still pretty easy going. There have been tornado watches and warnings all over from Myrtle Beach S.C. to Virigina Beach VA. The area south east of us are getting a harder brush than we are currently. I have been hearing the fire sirens going off, probably responding to wrecks and trees on the roads.

According to Noaa and the Weather Channel we should get the “main” event sometime this evening/tonight and Friday morning. It should all be cleared out by Friday evening. Then the weekend and first of next week will be cooler and sunny. Go figure.

Be safe my friends and we’ll meet again in the sunshine. james

Huricane Florence and the Eastern NC

Eastern North Carolina is hunkered down and waiting to see what this storm is going to do. Currently as I type this the wind is blowing and we had a short rain shower. People are still driving and making last minute preperations. Soon all will be quiet except for the moaning howls of wind and spattering rain.

Folks will hunker down with loved ones (furbabies too) and wait for the storm’s fury to pass. On the beaches waves will mercilessly and hungerily rip and tear at the shore, while wind will shred anything it can get a hold on. Bad times are coming and yet we have held our ground and thrived.

After the storm has spent its fury and has moved on. Then the clean up and the taking stock will begin. People will pull together and life starts again. If you are in the path of the storm, be safe. I will see you folks on the otherside of this storm.

Cheers on a hurricane afrernoon. james
