Daughter drove home from Richmond airport late yesterday. Usually an hour drive. Said it took her 3 hours on I 95 it was packed with cars heading north. Also signs on HY saying storm route. Said signs are there now clear to Fort Belvoir this morning.
Hope it fizzles out

My son is about 30 miles north east from Charlotte and says they should be ok.

Be careful those of you who live in Florence's path.

National Hurricane Center wrote:Key Messages:

1. A life-threatening storm surge is now highly likely along
portions of the coastlines of South Carolina and North Carolina, and
a Storm Surge Warning is in effect for a portion of this area. All
interests in these areas should complete preparations and follow any
advice given by local officials.

2. Life-threatening, catastrophic flash flooding and prolonged
significant river flooding are likely over portions of the Carolinas
and the southern and central Appalachians late this week into early
next week, as Florence is expected to slow down as it approaches the
coast and moves inland.

3. Damaging hurricane-force winds are likely along portions of the
coasts of South Carolina and North Carolina, and a Hurricane Warning
is in effect. Strong winds could also spread inland into portions
of the Carolinas.

4. Large swells affecting Bermuda, portions of the U.S. East
Coast, and the northwestern and central Bahamas will continue this
week, resulting in life-threatening surf and rip currents.

That's just great! Bunch of funny talking Southerners invading the peaceful North.

As long as they don't decide to stay.... Then we'd have to call em "Damn" Southerners! :mrgreen:

Hope everyone can stay safe and dry.

I happen to think that Yankee's talk funny, we all talk funny. LOL..... but stay safe! I think that the stupid people that CHOOSE to stay, should not be helped if they have trouble... I thought it was manditory> why would you want to risk your life and your families for stuff?

You Southerners and Northerners would really scratch your heads if you ever heard a real PA Dutchman speak. "j"s are pronounced "ch" down is pronounced "dawn" Know is almost a two sylable word, w is pronounced as a "v" and "v" is pronounced as an "f" We turn statements into questions by adding "ain't"
we also change English to a German wrod order.

Hawt awt today, aint?

Hwy Chenny, I am goan dawn tawn, wanna go with?

Na, Villiam, we talked abawt this before. You must outen the light when you leaf the room.

Chason, sit still in yer chair and quit your rutchen.

Yeah. You shouldn't be forced to leave. If you do choose to stay, you should do so of your own accord. Ain't nobody gonna come and rescue you. Rely on yourself or evacuate. Caught a snippet of the news this evening. Downgraded to a Cat 2. Still terrible... but better than a 4.
