If the storm continues to track my way on Sunday into western South Carolina, I will fill up several water bottles and jugs and secure things in the
yard and find best places to park. I realize a monster storm like this can still be a big hurricane even into western NC, not just western SC and it
can spawn tornadoes and take down trees. Hurricane Hugo hit SC and was still a hurricane taking down trees when it went past Charlotte.
One thing in our favor is that it has been dry here. The dry ground won't be too quick to soak up water and let tree roots slide out. However it is
hilly and flash flooding is possible and any tree going down could knock out power across a wide area. I remember an ice storm in the Greenville area
knocked out power in some areas for 3 or 4 weeks. Entire towns still were without power that long. With branches down, trees down, possible power
lines down with electrocution risks, it could get dangerous in the upstate of South Carolina. Worse near the coast.
If not for this storm, our weather would be great with temperatures approaching record lows tonight in the 50's and the high temperature on Monday
with the hurricane approaching is only supposed to be 70. It's going to be the coldest hurricane I ever remember. I hope it goes out to sea. I
don't want to lose power or trees or get damage to my house. I will pray the dry area we've had for months get sucked into the storm and kills it.
