Nonstop rains and some wind until about an hour ago, from the NC/SC border near Lancaster, SC.

Gotta LOVE southerners.

I am only solo traveler in park.

Big family scattered among 5 different sites, brought me a huge heaping plate of homemade food, same folks I gave parking to on my lot since they ran out of room for cars.

Awesomely delicious!

But the big problem will be they the Dodgers or the Cubs will be serving up Canadian bacon for breakfast, lunch, dinner and between meal snacks.  ;D ;D ;D

Possibly, Tom.. we'll see.   In any case, you can't get much better bacon!!!  8) ;D

Right when I thought we were out of harms way, we were treated to a 5 hour power outage.  :o

My sister that lives just outside of Goldsboro, NC lost her power now too. She was told it would probably three days before it was back on. I hope not though. She's on a fixed income, with a freezer full of food. It would  be a financial devastation to lose that food. She does have enough sense to leave the freezer closed, and she was considering putting extra quilts over it for added insulation.

We got so lucky here in central Florida. Haiti got hammered and north of us there is massive flooding. The hurricane predictors got it all wrong. It did not wrap around and come back and hit Florida a second time. Instead it went up the Canada and died.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

The "loop back" thing was always a statistically tiny probability, yet some of the media and emergency preparedness people chose to highlight it repeatedly. I was once again underwhelmed by the media coverage, which consisted of many hours of babble with little useful information. Whenever I tuned in (or went to a website) to find out eye location, windspeeds, track projections, or the status of evacuation routes. I instead found some gal or guy blathering about storm danger or interviewing somebody saying they would or would not  evacuate. They could have been providing up-to-the minute info on storm positions, time of arrival at various points and expected wind speeds, least congested evacuation highways, places that still had hotel rooms available, etc., but instead of useful public service they chose to "cover the story".

The media here in Miami always tries to talk the storm here and of course they try to get people to panic. It takes me about 5 minutes to close my shutters but I only closed the shutters on the north side of the house because I knew that was the direction the wind would be coming from and I was not expecting 80 to 100 mph wind that they kept trying to talk in here. Now I must admit I sure missed the call on Andrew as it did make a last minute turn. Now we sit back and wait for the next one.

Talked to my sister yesterday morning. She has power back, and all is good in her community. She hasn't bothered to go into Goldsboro itself, so I don't know how they're making out with flooding there from the Neuse River.

At one point Friday Night I was tracking the storm and it was headed straight for me, ETA about Midnight.. But I know a LITTLE about storms and kept watching as the sun set and it turned to the north and missed me..... I anticipated that.

That said. I was prepped to bug out if it did nto turn and by Midnight I'd have been up around Atlanta.
