    Here it comes... They're saying now that it's going to be a hurricane when it makes landfall. Winds are at 70 mph now...

    Yeah, I'm still wondering if I am going to have to drive 25 miles to work tomorrow just to sit there (I can't imagine anyone coming in to shop during a hurricane, but what do I know). I really can't afford to lose 11 hours of pay, but I'd rather not die trying. And all you need around here is a drizzle to cause endless crashes.

    I'm west of Raleigh... It's hugging the eastern part of the state. We're getting mosty rain and some high winds. My area is doing fine, but the city over from me has a bunch of downed trees and power outages, etc.

    I just went outside, I've got limbs down all over the place...

    But at least the trees they came from are still standing...

    Doesn't appear to have been too awful here in the Durham area, but I understand some other places were hit hard. How did you all do?

    I'm down here in Johnston County. We didn't get much wind and the rain wasn't as much as I expected.
