  9. Seems I always get here after it's started. I hope you won't feel effects of the rain and flooding. They were talking about how when the rain hits the mountains it will all be coming down and I know you aren't far from some big ones. You stay safe, too.

    1. Thanks, Jeanie. We are safe so far. 600 roads closed. 600K without power. 16 fatalities in the Carolinas. It's pretty much blanketed the states. And unfortunately you are right about the mountains. Sigh.
