    early but it is pretty benign so far, not that much rain, and it seems to me that the north west portion of the outflow not pickup up moisture and energy because much of it over land. highest gust so far about 30knots,, one small band of rain but still early yet Can yo believe this,,, looters already reported in my area, they come here they will not be happy

    Power went out for about 15 minutes but then came back but expect that sometime in the next 24 will lose it, generator set up and cables ran. coleman camp stove set up on back porch,, coffee pot, cast iron skillet, spam, eggs, rice and beans, got plenty, hell even got a case or two of MRE's (YUK), My dog kinda skittish now and wont leave my side

    A looter wouldn't stand a chance within a block of your place. You and your pup stay safe. At least there is no chance that you will not eat too many MREs at one time. The beef stew is awful. The C ration peanut butter dated '43 wasn't half bad when you mixed the peanut oil back in.

    Florence Aftermath and Status

    I can speak for the whole group to say that we're glad to hear from you and that you and Magoo made it through mostly undamaged and intact.

    Be careful the next few days and don't get hurt in cleanup efforts.

    Just remember; if you shoot a looter- he gets a free "no recovery, no fee" ambulance chasing lawyer. You have to pay for yours.

    Glad to hear from you! I was getting worried about you. Let us know if you need any help in the clean up effort. It isn't too far of a drive.

    North Carolina has what is called castle doctrine law, when it comes to protecting one's property. The following information was pulled from the North Carolina Stand Your Ground Law. There is some grey area when it comes to whether or not you feel threatened or not, but for the most part it is solid information.

    The “Castle Doctrine” law, addresses specific circumstances under which a person can legally shoot or employ deadly force against another. ... Under N.C.'s Castle Doctrine the lawful occupant of a home, motor vehicle or workplace isn't required to retreat prior to using deadly force

    With the mail and UPS down, there is no way to get into your area with the roads still impassable. Let me know what you need in a private message, with your address, and we will see about getting it done.
