And Gare, no one is going to need to risk their life for me. We're probably going to get Cat. 1 winds, and we're on the left side of the storm. We are prepared for and have experienced extreme inconvenience before. The main reason I am not leaving is #1, not going to die. #2 I will be at the mercy of the state as to when I can return. #3 I will be here to plug holes, should they occur, and to protect property. As stated earlier, it depended on where and how strong. If I lived on the right side of the projected path, as in Wilmington, I would be gone.

    The Guvnuh's order is understandable. I choose to regard it as a strong suggestion. He doesn't have any more information than I do, I'm at least as capable of analyzing the info, and I figure on making my own decision. Only one household in my neighborhood has gone. Thanks all for your input.
    I respect your decision although I think it not wise! I hope you, your wife and neighbors come though the Hurricane okay and unscathed. There have been many that opted to stay in their' homes or in resort Hotels having Hurricane parties that did not make it and many of them have never been found to this day. If you stay through the totality of Florence and the damage done in its wake, please let us know how you felt about staying when it is all said and done (i.e. it was okay...would do it again or would not do it again in a million years). We have read other members experiences of riding it out during a Hurricane and would like to read your experience!

    Yep, yesterday there was a big contingent of Power Company workers from Chattanooga, Tennessee heading North on I-81 here and were probably enroute to Northern portions of North Carolina to hold on standby for deployment to where they are needed.

    I can assure you that I am struggling with this, as are others, many many 10's of thousands. "I don't know that" is a true statement. Here is what I DO know. I don't want anyone to make my forthcoming statement more than it is...When I have stated that outside the wire is hostile territory, it's not a joke. In my case, the "wire" is within a mile. This house will be looted if abandoned.

    That is why I am pro-deployment of M18 Claymore Mines all the way around the perimeter of the property.

    If the whole country knows my area is about to get its butt paddled by a giant hurricane.....

    And the local gooberment say "Yall bettter git on outta here!!!!"

    Well, I'd go.....duh


    Unless of course, I've specifically prepared my entire existence for the impact of a hurricane......

    In which case, I'd get a beer, give em the bird, sit on the picnic table, and watch the show till it was time to hide.

    Same goes for forest fires and volcanoes too.

    When the Earth says MOVE!!!.....I listen

    ETA: I lived in a place my house would be looted.....so I moved.

    While the hurricane approaches.....A different type of natural fury.
    Remember this guy? He stayed.
    Harry Randall Truman, 83, became somewhat of a folk hero in the weeks leading up to the eruption after he refused to vacate his home near Mount St. Helens despite being urged to leave by officials.May 17, 2015
    He lived near the base of the mountain where it blew out. Still buried there somewhere probably...

    The path can change in a heart beat and you could be in the middle of it. Cat 3,4 or 5 is nothing to play with.

    I would never evacuate to avoid a hurricane, but I live 30 miles from the ocean in a town that's 440 feet above sea level. Your town is listed as 18 feet above sea level and you're a stone's throw from the ocean. The storm surge could easily submerge your home. Remember all those people stranded on the roof of their homes after Katrina? That could be you!

    Sure I remember Harry! He went out with style. That guy's not me though. We lived in Sandpoint, Idaho when St. Helens blew. We got only a dusting of ash there. My folks lived in Yakima, Wa. and day turned to night there with the ash. They got close to 6 inches.

    I'm out of the lethal zone for this storm, at the latest. At least half of this town is still here. Two of my neighbors are leaving. I'm far more worried for those folks near the coast in NC.

    Here in the great state of South Carolina, all of it is a bunch of outposts, surrounded by criminals. Now I'm not saying this about all folks living out in the beautiful countryside. But those law abiding citizens living there, know exactly what I'm saying. Anything not secured, or even stored in a locked outbuilding even, is fair game. Thieves. Turn your back on a bike, or lawn mower, or park your boat in the yard for just a few hours after returning, the bike and mower are gone, as are your motor and tank. 90 per cent of the bicycles in the previous town I lived in for 9 years were spray painted black. 2 of them were mine. Impulse thefts and planned multi-perp jobs. Thieves all. I would move from this state in a heartbeat, if not for family.

    Might need a chainsaw to get to roof. Id be building wood racks to elevate a bunch of stuff. Maybe plywood to support stuff in ceiling rafters?

    This is true for most anywhere....It's just in different forms....If it's not crack heads? It's meth heads! Etc....And some of your wealthy neighborhoods? Some people in there are the same. I'm not sure you could name me a place on the East coast that is any different. The only reason I say "east coast" is because That's where I've had the most experience traveling and working.

    When things like this happen? Criminal type thinking will move in from states away. Not as bad as we all think but is a reality. None of your possessions are worth your life. or chancing it. Sometimes it gives you something to do later.....Track down who stole your stuff! That can be fun too!! Yes! I'm a sicko!!

    Thanks all for the good suggestions. These have been my considerations as well. The surge is my primary concern. Unless something radically changes, I don't believe that is a threat at this time. I do have a way through the roof, but it's not happening here.

    Not risking my life at this time. Tomorrow will be the same. Thanks. Just got a text. With Alarm. Emergency! Leave your zone now! They know, with cell phones, who OBEYED, and who didn't.
