    Will Hurricane EARL get us or will he leave us alone. We are in the cone right now and the OBX has begun evacuations. At best it could be a rainy, windy mess for a while. The sad thing about hurricanes is you hear about them for days and you can get complacent real easy and not be prepared.

    Isabel was that last bad one through here. We were only out of power for 2 weeks. Lots of down trees, pole lines etc. Major flooding was the big issue. I'm a lineman and worked 4 months 12-18 hrs a day 6 days a week. My wife was in Korea at the time, my oldest was gone to college and my poor daughter suffered the brunt of me be gone constantly...it was not good times.

    No evacuation for me :) We should only get some rain out of this unless it moves a bit more westerly. Unfortunately storms like these are good money.
