HMMMM.......
Sitting here with my wife on one side and my beer on the other. Thinking about the days ahead.
I live in Georgetown county, South Carolina and have a lot on my mind. Mainly a storm named Florence.
I have lived through Hazel and Hugo with a few other named storms in-between.
This one feels different though, I can not put my finger on why. As I watch, this storm is predicted to sit off the coast, dumping rain before coming to my house with Cat. 1 hurricane winds.
It's the water that is the most worrisome. The wind is one thing but the water before the wind is the real beast.
The day after Hugo (it hit at 145 mph, if I remember correctly) I remember waking up and walking outside. The landscape was transformed. I lived about 1/4 mile down a dirt road in the middle of a pine forest.
All around you could see paths cut through the pine woods where tornadoes had cut through and broke off all the trees about 10' off the ground, a truly awesome site.
A few years ago Mathew swept through and it seemed worse, even though the wind was only T.S. to Cat. 1.
The difference was the water. The ground got saturated so the trees did not "snap" they uprooted.
So, once again as I face down one of these storms I have come to understand that the wind is bad but......the water is what really damages.
Say a prayer for us and keep us in your thoughts. The days ahead will be........ interesting.
I will try and keep y'all informed and I would appreciate if y'all did the same for me, as sometimes it is hard to get info when you're in the path of the storm. The internet has helped with this tremendously though over the years.
Thanks in advance.
(Not the best written thread but hey....Beer.)

Thank you!
As I stated.... Something feels different about this one but maybe it's the beer.

My 20 year old daughter evacuated this morning from Folly Beach and is safely nestle in the mountains of North Carolina.

I was living in Columbia when Hugo hit and went down a week later to help restore elevators in Charleston.

Stay safe !

Though out them all I never thought about leaving but this time..... not so sure. We have a small farm with chickens and goats and I just can't leave em. Also have around 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 honey bees (well, that may be a small exaggeration).

All I can find for news/ info, over and over and over: FLORENCE TO HIT THE COAST. Ok- fine and dandy...

How about the rest of us poor fools inland??? The weather sites are acting like this thing is going to dance up and down the coast, while the rest of us get sunny skies and 80 degrees. :/

This is just a personal complaint, but watching meteorologists cough up a definitive path is like watching blind people nail up jello.

Just wondering, do you have a feeling that the storm is going to veer a little further south? I've seen a few say this and I somewhat feel like that too.

Yeah, I feel your pain living here in Kentucky for the last 18 years, But my interests is I have family in South Carolina and was born in raised down there. I was a weather junkie when I lived down there and I still am.

I think the European Model has it hugging the coast and moving in at Savanna but I don't see that happening. I think it will have too much forward momentum to stop on a dime and start moving down the coast. This leads me to believe it will shift to the southwest and move in between Charleston and Georgetown.

Prayers sent your way Quad. Judging by how you feel about this storm, you may want to take your family and leave. No need to put them at risk.

For those that want a good update. WPDE.COM weather. Their meteorologist is the best I have seen yet when it come to accurate info.

I've lived through a few myself. The one I remember the most was hurricane Opal, cat 4.
Been through a few in Florida too. I lived in central Fla so we never got hit that bad, just lots and lots of rain.
The scary thing about hurricanes is that they are so unpredictable.

Hurricane Opal tore my street up and down, by some miracle my old rickety house was completely spared. The one tree that fell did so away from the house.

Anyways, sending prayers and good vibes stay safe!
