I've heard the storm is expected to hit here in NOVA sometime around noon tomorrow, so I hope her wedding is indoors AMD. I am hoping as well that the landfall will slow it down some, and I'll see you guys on the other side eventually.

I'ts funny how when these things hit the first thing guys think of is getting more beer. I have a frig in the garage that stays very cold and full of beer. I still purchased more beer and I can't even get it into the frig because its full.

I have lived a long time on the Gulf Coast in one state or another and correct Hurricane terminology is important. Alcohol related products are referred to as...Provisions and considered essential survival supplies.
Pretty much everything else is "Non-essential" and nice to have........

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

Well, when we were driving back Thursday, the State of NC declared a State of Emergency for 11:00 a.m., we stopped in at our favorite German beer brewery (The Weeping Radish) at 10:55 a.m. The woman in the store said it was a good thing we got there when they did because, in NC, the sale alchohol is prohibited during a State of Emergency!

No alchohol as the hurricane rages past? Now that's a State of Emergency!

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

11am, looks like the high altitude wind shear saved our a$$ and we dodged another bullet (cat 1 is a lot better than a cat 3). Right now not much worse than a strong T-storm. A couple of isolated tornados popping up here and there though. Powers still on, less than 15K out of power in VB right now.

A few garage doors blown in and siding ripped off in Sandbridge (Oceanfront area).

I'm finishing up my first Red Stripe and some eggs. I'm about 30 minutes from Columbia, what's the forecast in your neck of the woods?

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

Just a reminder regarding power. Just because the power is down in your neighborhood DOES NOT mean the lines that are down are dead. People start hooking up Gen Sets and do not know to shut off the main breaker in their box and the gen back feeds from the generator (to the power company) and can "heat up" the local lines in the area.

I guess the attitude is if I'm gonna die, might as well go with a cold one in my hand.

She's only a tropical storm right now but I haven't seen winds like this from bigger hurricanes. Guess she got mad I called her a blowhard bitch
