    I'm in Chesapeake 20 minutes into VA. All the northbound NC traffic is coming my way.

    I left buxton today. I saw alot of northern plates on nc 64 west heading towards 95. They also had the rd signs with directions. I know it sounds weird, but I was thinking those folks were taking the long way home or avoid all the traffic.

    20 feet above sea level sounds like a good amount. But with the winds and who knows how much rain we will get that is not a lot of water.

    I'm going the safe route and will be at 14,036' just to be be sure. :) Hiking Mt Sherman on Saturday, and I don't think Irene will make it that far.
    Stay safe, especially you guys that are in a position to go out in the weather to aid and assist others.
