    OT: Please pray for North Carolina

    I am safe, but had to evacuate. So much devastation here gang......we have at least 2 more days of this constant pounding of wind and rain. I have friends homes completely under water. This is the worst that I have ever seen or been through. Please pray!

    Peace and love,

    Richard (CW)

    My aunt lives in Fayetteville. Theyve hunkered down and are riding it out against my better judgement. Just glad my grandma wasnt staying with them at this time or Id have drove down there earlier in the week and evacuated her myself.

    Have to say a prayer for all those being affected. Horrible.

    Glad you're okay and safe.
    Hurricanes are no fun. Andrew was my first. Wilma & Irma were both tough to deal with, prior to, during, and especially afterward.
    Prayers for all going through this event now.

    OT: Please pray for North Carolina

    All kind of statistics are staggering with this, but one that really stuck out to me was that the storm was going to dump 9.6 trillion gallons of water on the state of North Carolina alone. That's enough for the entire state to be covered in 10 inches of water.

    Good article on the storm here. 7 deaths so far, and the ones that I really hate to see our the ones that are so preventable. Some guy gets electrocuted because he's outside in the rain trying to hook together two extension cords.

    Richard, so glad you evacuated. I'm glad you are not this guy.

    Not good. I had hoped that the high pressure system that has been parked over eastern KY and TN would turn the storm north and keep it out of the mountains.

    Hazard is expected to get 2 to 2 1/2 inches of rain starting tonight and running thru Tuesday morning. They should be fine barring one of those 2 inch + holler filling thunder bursts

    CW, you doing ok? I don't know if it is safe for you to have returned yet or not, and I'm sure you have more important things to do than to check in here--but if you get a chance, we'd appreciate it.

    I was wondering the same thing Darrell. Hope that, considering the circumstances, all is well.

    Re: OT: Please pray for North Carolina

    Talked to a friend and co-worker this morning that lives a few miles east of Winston Salem which is about 70 miles from Raleigh and while the rain has stopped and the sun is peeking out, rivers are forecast to crest tomorrow but the major lakes in the area are still having to release water to relieve pressure on the dams and to relieve flooding issues behind the dams. Water is still rising in many flooded areas and relief from that flooding is still a few days away.

    I hope CW is still in his safe spot.

    I hope all is well...for all and for selfish reasons.

    We rescheduled a Pinehurst Golf trip from last Fri-Wed until this Fri-Wed.

    We are being told all courses will be open on Wed/Thur and that other than a few downed trees and a lot of needle cleanup they will be good to go and all shops and restaurants will be open. One exception is the Little River Golf Club which had damage to its greens.

    The Pinehurst area is almost 100% native sand so the water should drain out in a hurry. Was there on 2 different occasions many years ago for a little pasture pool. It was beautiful back then and I fee sure it has only gotten better since then.

    I heard that it would be several days before the "worst" danger might exist because of the rivers. Thanks, Dan.
