My son is at Camp Lejeune, NC. I saw on their Facebook page, a lot of family members saying their Marines told them how crazy it was, etc. Being from Florida, Gavin told me "yeah, it got a little windy", lmao.
As for not evacuating... I can say living in Florida and dealing with hurricanes (or the threat of hurricanes) all the time... if we chose to evacuate for each one, we might as well just move during hurricane season.
Hey guys, long time.... too long. I'm just south of Raleigh and it's wet! Power was out for a little, but we're back up and running. Been raining for days and flooding will continue to be an issue as we still have a few days of rain to deal with. Looks like we're about half way through the storm since it's moving through here so slowly. It's not near as bad as predicted but I guess it's not over.
