    Definitely not advisable, Charleston is low land and flat, very prone to floods. This system is gonna deliver 3 days of sustained rain to the area. The winds concern me, not sure this area can deal with it.

    Anticipating losing power for a bit. Normally Raleigh averts most of the damage but looks like we're gonna get cornholed this time.

    The recent predictive models have the storm barreling over Raleigh but it's still early. There's a system in the Caribbean that's going to influence it's trajectory, hopefully (for us) with a northeastern bend.

    If the storm heads over us directly the high pressure system in the Northeast is gonna lock the fucker in place which means flooding. Going to be a shit show.

    I've been through 2 hurricanes the last 2 years. This one appears to be a behemoth and will fortunately miss Jacksonville. Are you folks in NC/SC going to batten down the hatches and ride out the storm if it doesn't weaken, or are ya'll getting the F out of there?

    If the storm doesn't weaken getting to Charleston even after the storm passes could be a real pain in the ass. I suspect flooding will be a big problem there. It obviously goes without saying, but you and yours stay safe.

    Lol the latest info on WRAL was hilarious, basically we don't know what the fuck is gonna happen just something. Less is known now about the trajectory than before. Once it hits land it can veer off northeast or even curl southwest. It's possible the fucking moutains of NC take tropical storm winds.

    Thanks Obama.

    New forecast has it swinging a bit south of us with South Carolina worse for the wear. There is a scenario whereby this fucking thing stalls through Tuesday. TUESDAY!

    Make sure you stock up on booze and smokes. They usually ban sales after a storm.

    I'm even closer to the coast than Ninja and we are expecting to get hit full force. My daughter lives up in Raleigh and her mom is taking her to the mountains for the weekend to get out of the way.

    We've been hoarding water, food and batteries all week so hopefully that's okay.

    The thing that concerns me more is being down for business for what could be 4-5 days in the heart of the month. Most of my bills are due this time of month and it may take weeks and weeks to recover from losing 4-5 days and that's if everything doesn't get destroyed. So I'm rooting for this motherfucker to swing Northeast.

    They're already implementing sundown to sunrise curfews starting tomorrow in my county. You can get charged with a misdemeanor for violating curfew.
