It still has 2/3rds of a tank from when I filled it last year because of a threatening hurricane so I'll probably leave it as is 8)

At least you don't have to worry about not having work...neither rain, nor sleet, nor hurricane..or whatever that postal slogan is.

But seriously, stay safe.

I'll be like Lt. Dan in Forest Gump with mail and packages in my hands yelling "COME ON!! THAT'S ALL YOU GOT?!" :D :D

Oh yeah I survived Hurricane Hugo back in September 1989 on the coast in Charleston SC, I'll be fine. Thanks!

It was raining non stop for something like 30 hours straight here in Indianapolis.  I've seen heavy rain, but never rain this pervasive.  It looks like it has eased up now.  It's still wet, but no additional rain. 

On the way home from work Friday it was really coming down.  I have to walk half a mile to my car.  Parking is always pricey and hard to get in downtown areas.  I have to park that far away to get something relatively cheap at $105 a month.  Luckily, I had an umbrella.  It provided some relief but when the rain is coming down that hard, it is limited.  Ankles and feet got pretty damp, but the rest was dry.  On the drive home, some lower sections of the road were flooded and people had to drive through slowly, lest we destroy our cars' engines.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

Tropical storm force winds & gusts (39-74mph) are now expected in the Charlotte area by Thursday afternoon, evening, & Friday based on the current track.
We will be on the left quadrant (the weakest side) of the storm when it comes ashore but my gf's younger brother lives in New Bern, NC along the Neuse River inside the Outer Banks and that town will most likely be decimated by winds from the right front quadrant of the hurricane, then storm surge will flood the town afterwards.. She's going to call him to see what he'll be doing; staying or evacuating :-\

Unfortunately it's not looking good for Wilmington at all based on the current track, they look to take a direct hit from Florence.  :-[

Floyd was a big deal there in 1999, but it was only a category 2 when it hit Wilmington.

One of my buddies there is always surfing as the hurricanes approach.  I talked to him today, and he said he may actually skip this one.

Latest models are showing Florence rapidly slowing down at the coast and stalling over the Carolinas leading to a catastrophic flooding event this weekend..
It could meander westward into the Charlotte area where I'm at and could dump torrential amounts of rain  :scared:
