    thanks sb....I agree but would I rather have a cat 3 storm that lasts 8 hours...or a cat 1 or 2 storm that lasts 36 hours....I would take the first one I THINK. Could be wrong. But thank you sir.

    There may be some truth to that..... well in terms of rainfall potential. At least the storm surge will be cut down. (What's your base elevation?)

    be prepared to say adios to some of that vinyl siding. (and hopefully you have spome tarps / spare shingles handy)

    looking for maps but cant find elevation. We are several miles from beach so ocean not a real problem...a mile from cape fear river...that, I doubt, will be an issue. Storm surge will not be an issue...2 feet of water will be. We got water halfway up driveway when that last 6 inch storm came through. Flooding will be problem. We are about 3 hours away from the rough stuff.

    although there is a fence behind pool...all of those trees are ours. It goes back another 50 feet....this puppy will cost some $ to clean up.

    You should have it from the survey when you bought your house ;)

    Reading the rest, I hope you took some of the advice I posted earlier... the pics dont look like it

    something I had forgotten about is that Jays area and much of the Carolinas is saturated from all of the rain they have gotten and it won't take much to take trees down,,,,,,,,,,be safe Jayster

    The WTC is reporting live from Wilmington,,,,,,they say top winds have hit 92 mph and that its getting pounded. I hope Jay and everyone there is hanging in it had to be a rough night. The eye or what is left of it is very close to his backyard.

    Guy on TV Broadcasting from Wilmington showed the Cape Fear River , he said that hours ago it was flowing North to South but showed it live just now and you literally see it flowing the opposite direction right now = its now South to North. I think Jay said he's a half Mile from Cape Fear River but not sure

    I really hope those photos were pre-storm prep and he tried to waterproof his house the best he could....
