    Y'all hang in there! In hurricane Rita, with a house full of people and our little town swarmed with panic filled people that left Houston, I got a text from a friend in Arkansas. You have to be there to appreciate it, but he made us laugh like donkeys.

    When you can't see the news, it's because you ARE the news!

    Indeed they did get relevant..At 9am, EDT, the eye was at 34N, 78W which looks to be very close to directly over Willmington. and it appears you had 105mph wind gusts this morning. :(

    I'm assuming, you are unable to post this morning, probably for good reason.
    I do hope you are safe.

    40 inches of rain possible for Wilmington.......BTDT, it ain't good.

    For those who have never been thru a large slow moving storm like this, @ 6mph, it takes hours and hours for it to pass. Steady winds of or nearing hurricane force, with stronger gusts, for up to 8-10 hours. Even strongly built structures can only take so much of that constant battering.

    We've lost power and our weather hasn't been that bad yet
    Not a good sign
    We have a co-op and 51% in my zip code don't have power
