    Not looking good guys, especially for those who were hit hard by Florence. Stay safe everyone.

    And especially good thoughts to our friends in Florida and Georgia.

    Not the greatest? Depends on how fast it slows down (Wind speeds not it's speed since we know it's going to Accelerate) Also depends on where you are leaving from.

    Just rent your own plane and bring a parachute.

    the only thing I'd want to be in less than an airplane in 45mph winds is a damn parachute

    Well, if you are in the parachute, you are doing it wrong.

    The storm winds are doing it wrong; you're just along for the ride.

    At least this one Has to go though Florida Georgia and South Carolina to get to most of us. Now for those in those locations it's not good. (Nor for the SE portion of our state. They don't need more skywater.)

    Every time I check back this one keeps getting worse. I agree SC and NC low country can't take another river swell from the rain Michael will drop, even in a short run through the Carolinas.

    I do worry that NC is mostly going to be rebuilding the state ourselves. Once Michael is done with the panhandle I think most of the national fundraising will be going there.

    So yeah, this one looks like it might suck too. Floods expected in places that aren't even recovered from the last ones yet.

    Man, some of the photos/videos of this hurricane are unreal. Looks like one of the worst storms to hit the U.S. in several years. Yikes.

    The one slightly good thing about this storm is that it appears to be moving pretty fast. I think you'll be good by Friday night.

    Yeah, I saw it will be out of the state by Thursday night. I just don’t know the widesweeping issues this will cause to airlines. I wouldn’t be surprised if plane/crew doesn’t get to the right place when they should upstream of me and that inevitably screws up everything else
