Hurricane Florence Check in thread

Hey kids, so it looks like the mid Atlantic is gonna take a whoopin from this twirly one Wednesday & Thursday this week. Gov Cooper declared a state of emergency late Friday and evacuations have started. We're in the middle of the path, and even though we're 2 hours inland, it's going to fling us around a little & dump a load of rain. NC, GA and VA are all going to take the brunt. Batten down, charge up, don't forget the pets and stay safe.
