Thanks!  I'm taking some really cool video right now, pictures too.  It's alreay ugly but exciting at the same time.  Will pop a top (maybe 12) after it's over.  The wind gusts and sustained are already like Irma and the news is not reporting that, some locals are......power outages already, but not us. (yet)

AJC, so glad your Island didn't bare the brunt.  It's just awful for those poor Bahamians, I can't even imagine what they went through and will continue to go through for who know how long- smh.

Hope all the SC and NC peeps fare better than what's predicted.  Be safe!

Shoot, My palm trees are already getting naked at the moment- winds stripping.  Tall pines are shaking their tops like a dog with a toy. (((l)))

 

We're about to hit hide-tide so this will be interesting.  Anybody wanna buy some water front property?  I'll make you a real good dealSmiley TongueSmiley Very Happy

Re: Amazon SC and Hurricane Dorien

Yuck! I have been in a hurricane once when I lived in Louisiana. Hurricane Isaac hit us. I went to sleep when the power went out and my dad freaked because when he came to check on me I didn’t answer him and he found me in my room passed out. 

 

Apparently sleeping through hurricanes runs in my family. I’ve done it, my mother has done it, and her mother did it too. 

 

Stay safe!

Y'all are just cool-beans.  That's a wonderful trait!  Yeah, I think that's when we couldn't get any Indian River(florida) orange juice for a while.  So did it damage your home?

Nothing could have done more than what Katrina did. My dad never had the cottage I was sleeping in fixed after Katrina... you could get down on your hands and knees in the kitchen and there was about a 1 inch gap where you could see that the house had separated from the floor. I was sleeping one night and a frog from the pond came in and landed right on my mouth and I always had lizards in the house that came in from outside too. 

 

Thank god im back in Colorado.

Fortunately I didn’t live there at the time, I came down to live with him for about a year from September 2011 to October 2012 when I was fighting for disability and he had me stay out in the cottage because I didn’t get along with his girlfriends daughter. You could tell from the damage that the wind was basically ripping the cottage from the foundation. In fact I fell asleep to the rhythmic slamming of the awning that went over the porch which was flapping the whole time Isaac was beating down. 

 

Lafayette is only like 35 miles from the coast so both my dad’s house and the cottage on the grounds were built with the house itself elevated over the foundation by concrete and wood so most of the damage was limited to wind instead of flooding too.

I hope they're not in Eastern NC - that area has just been hit so hard for the past few years (Matthew, Florence, and Michael).     I hate that Dorian is going to do more damage.
