If you want the leaves and trash to blow into someone else's yard, cut it short. if you want it to stay where it falls, leave it long.

Tropical downpours just started here after a trace before noon. I moved all the cars to one end of the property for fear of falling trees. For that reason,we are sleeping downstairs tonight. I am not looking forward to the clean-ups next week as I am sure branches and debris will be all over the place.

Tropical storm warnings are posted here with winds sustained of 40-50 mph with gusts to 70.Just 10 miles tothe east,Hurricane warnings are in effect with gusts to 85. Long Island will get hammered. Hope everyone stays safe thru this.

Thank the good Lord we do not flood here. Not too far from here though,are Wayne,Little Falls,and Lincold Park. Those people will be leaving their house by boat for sure.

I have been thru Cat 1's before and was in awe of mother natures power. I,however,coudl not ever imagine goiubng thru a CAT 4 or a 5 though.

A Cat 1 is a summer breeze compared to a Cat 4 or 5. It is not anything that one can imagine, nor anything a person would want to experience. I hope that I never have to ride out a Cat 4 again.

Overall so far so good. The eye is close right now. Obviously lots of rain and wind. Storm surge seems to be our biggest concern right now. But the generators work and we have plenty of food. Hope it's a quiet night.

Here are a few links to some FB pages. I think most of these are on hatteras island or the area

It is wild to see pictures of the sound water GONE to the other side (the mainland).

I have yet to hear about my camper
