Not sure which of our members are on the East Coast but Florence is hitting them really hard. Torrential rains, 12 deaths so far, a million homes without power and who knows how many billions of dollars in damage. Whoever you are, you are in my prayers and I fervently hope that you are okay.

I live on the East side of Oahu in Hawaii and we dodged a major bullet when Hurricane Lane missed us by less than a hundred miles a few weeks ago. Hurricane Olivia turned into a Tropical Storm just as she rolled right over the top of us this past week. Lots of rain and wind but nothing like Florence is dumping on the Carolinas right now.

If you can spare a minute to say a prayer for those poor folks, please do so.

Thanks, Jeff. Hurricanes are not that much fun.

We are doing ok, since we live 25 miles northwest of Charlotte NC. For us it’s more of a rain event, we live on high ground so flooding isn’t concern directly. It may take a while for the rivers and creeks to rise, as long as the wind stays like it is we should be ok on the power.

Only time will tell

Yeah, but who could afford to buy tools and have them shipped there? And besides, some of us like beaches and not having to deal with snow!

You get used to the snow, but beaches in Hawaii are great. I just can't see Santa Claus riding a boogie board delivering presents

Truly. Isn't the root ball on that huge tree on the small side? Hope that neighbor has a really good insurance policy.

My understanding is that in NC it is YOUR policy that pays even if it is the neighbors tree. Worst part about this is they called 911. They just taped off the area an said no one could go in the house. They could not even get valuables out. Ridiculous. I would have been arrested with my chain saw!
