...four inches in 24hours from this thing, which is the remains of Gordon. By morning I expect it to be six pretty easily. Sump is running in the cellar.

Watching Florence pretty carefully, currently supposed to make landfall Thursday night somewhere near the SC/NC border. Much will be more clear a little later, especially if it turns north after landfall.

We've had at least the second wettest year here this year that we've had since we moved here. Unusually wet and the fruit growers are quite grumpy.

    Its at least a foot deep in the shallowest part, the entire house is surrounded by it but its quite warm to my surprise as I had to go out so Herbert could pee, she wouldnt go out unless I did. Its... more

        ...a little over six this morning, so we are stream-flooding quite friskily as the groundis saturated. Lovely.
        • looks like we're evacuating - mike, Tue Sep 11 07:23
          Tammys scared about sitting through a hurricane and I'm not really strong enough to do what might be needed in an emergency so it looks like my daughter is going to come and get us and we'll sit it... more
          • Keep us posted, mate - sarge, Tue Sep 11 08:17
            I know how both she and you feel; I have a problem staying on an even keel anymore during such things, after experiencing one on board ship, and dealing with heavy-lifting emergencies is difficult... more
            • Update on evac - mike, Tue Sep 11 10:58
              Spoke to Heather this morning, decided to leave evacuation until tomorrow as that gives her time to go shopping and do other things perhaps because we're coming to stay. I'm probably going to put my... more

                    I agree about NOAA.I have it on my computer and it has been much more accurate than others. One of the local TV stations in Savannah seems to use NOAA also.
                  • Thanks very useful - mike, Tue Sep 11 20:26
                    All day long I've been telling her that the media always exaggerate and cannot be trusted because they think 'the story' matters more than the truth. I even found the latest maps and pointed out that ... more

                      ...convince her, and that is just fine; was intended to help you keep your perspective, look cool, and keep your nut. Grin! Keep those links in your bookmarks and you'll be on top of the situation,... more
