My wife's parents are outside Asheville- many road closures and flash floods in their area. Nothing here in Raleigh yet- light sprinkles with the worst to come this afternoon. We're expecting anywhere from 4-8 inches of rain with some wind. Similar to what we got during Florence (some road closures and power outages, weak trees down). I hope everyone is okay- especially thinking of Super Stacker as Panama City was flattened.

Lots of pictures at that link showing damage in Panama City. Blessings on those affected.

I drove from Asheville to Greensboro today. Went through Winston Salem and it looked like a war zone with the debris and power outages. A tree landed on a car in downtown shutting down a bridge. I stopped in Stokesdale to see a friend. Took me 2 hours to go 3 miles... Then i had to wait 3 hours to leave before they cleared the roads. Every side road had trees down taking the power lines with them. Stokesdale, high point, oak ridge are all without power. I saw atleast a dozen totaled cars on the highway where the wind had blown them into the guard rails. I picked a bad day to travel... Pretty stupid of me.

My house is fine. Power outages and damage from winds and floods again here in Raleigh and my neighborhood; my neighbors have a giant oak crushing the garage and the car inside. No school again tomorrow. Good day to go to the fair and see the giant pumpkin.

I hope so as well. I looked up Panama City to see how this city is doing after the storm. They got hit pretty hard. They are still under a mandatory water boil, lots of power outages, and seems to have some cell phone outages as well. Let's just hope all is well and he is just forced to be off the grid for a bit.

Well I made it out alive and well. We have no cell service so been out of touch from everyone. My house sits pretty much on the dividing line of bad to everything gone. My house made it out well, no fences or trees any more, but thankful for that being the only issues I have. All my friends that live less that five miles from me have nothing. Been running from sun up to curfew everyday tarping roofs and walls to the house that are still standing. Cell service is out indefinitely for Verizon customers only. Luckily father-in-law brought in an att hotspot so we can at least get emails out to family members to let them know we are okay. It’s complete devistation, my town is gone and not sure how long it will be before it comes back.

Glad you made it through relatively unscathed. The pics I saw from Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe looked bad, like total loss bad. Good on you helping out the neighbors. Stay safe.

Great to hear from you :clap: Sorry for the yard damage, but as you said thankful that was all the damage you sustained. A few weeks ago when. I was in the middle of Hurricane Florence which turned into way worse of a Florence Flood a Gracious member here sent me some help and told me not to send him anything back but to pay it forward so send me your address or an address I can send you a get well package to. Hang in there sorry about your Hometown.
