Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

we didnt lose power, which was a nice surprise but im alil disappointed as we were ready with ice, cooler, flashlights, lantern, candles, all electronics power charged. did see a huge tree limb fall in the middle of the street. about the size of a decent size tree. about a half hour later a guy in his truck came down the road attempted to run over it at one end (where the limb had split off), backed up and smartly decided to drive over the tail end of the branches.

had my storm drain cloggin out back so when we got home around 5 pm, there was about a foot of water with the rain coming down hard. took off the cover and tried to unclog it with a clothes hanger but that didnt work. i was desperate so i stuck my hand down there which just barely fit, acting like a lil girl i thought i felt something bite me and yanked my hand out and had cuts all over. i manned up and spent the next 30 mins slowly pulling small handfuls of dirts n peddles out but it was still clogged.

so for the next 12 hours i had to go down there with a bucket and clear the water out. sucked when it got to around 2 am as i was tired and had to set my alarm every hour. luckily only about 2 sq ft of drywall got warped.

sat morning before the storm i went to home depot and there were a ton of people buying generators. i walked back to my car without any D batterries and this lady had this huge generator on a heavy duty cart. i asked if she needed help and she gave a reluctant yes as if she was scared or something. she went to go put down the seats leaving her wallet right on top of the generator box at the end of her suv where i was standing. i stepped back as i didnt want her to get more scared. i asked her how much she paid, took her a few seconds and she said very quietly $900. so we got the generator in the back of her suv and she didnt even say thank you. i get it, i was rednecked out that morning and had whiskey breath and shot eyes from the night before but dang lady . . . atleast say thank you.

anyways, just waiting and watching my hand to see if it turns green and i get some type of hepatitis from cutting up my hand in an outside city storm drain.

Dammit. If that thing continues on it's current path, it's going to do a lot more than ruin our first weekend of NFL football. Here's hoping she takes a sharp turn to the north.

Turn bitch turn! I've got 2 tix to the Skins-Giants and I don't think it'll be very fun sitting in hurricane type winds and rain.

Chico, I'm sure your parents know but they are starting to allow people back on the island. We went down to OBX and there is not any real damage on the ocean side. When you go over to the sound side there is stuff every where. Boats, hot tubs, trash, dock, peirs, and other trash sitting in peoples yards. Stoped and watched a crane go over the top of someones house to get to a boat in their back yard and sat it in the water. Bad time for the battery in my camera to go bad.

My dad said they're strongly considering not rebuilding 12 around the pea island area and thinking bout going ferry(s) only...one to Rodathe and another to Hatteras. He was told they got a 400 ft wide and 20ft deep channel from the storm around there and that may be to expensive to close. People kinda pissy with that idea, judge might have to sign off on it.

My father talked to a guy who runs everything there in Rodanthe, he said during the storm, most water damage was done by the sound and wind has pushed some much water to land that you could look out 100 yards in the sound and it was like a dessert when the eye passed....on the other side of the eye the wind was the worst. When the ass end of the storm showed back up, it took the water from the sound and shot it towards the island. The sound is what flooded everything. The guy said the eye of the hurricane was surreal.

Bad news on Katia is she is a Cat 3. Good news, the latest track shows her missing the East Coast.

They will close it up. To many people affect by doing nothing and a ferry will cost more money in the long run. Its only sand and there is plenty around to fill that hole.
