Excellent. I live on the border between Georgia and South Carolina - pretty much at the center of the hurricane's path when it crosses into Georgia. I am not at risk for flooding, but there are many large trees all around and very close to my house. The next 24 - 36 hours will likely be interesting.

Spoiler for Hiden:
No fear has my cold heart, just a grim, evil grin,
It just shrugs and it nods when the bad things begin.

Be safe, Gem. If you can after all's done, let us know you're okay.

Sorry I said that about the heroics, it was silly :-\ You do whatever is needed.
I hope it's gone now...

As for me, I'm glad I'm going home tomorrow. I brought a book to start and I realised I'm not interested, I'm taking it back to the charity shop... What to read now??
I got a paper today..

Sorry, Ive been busy all day and I am just fine. The storm is moving so slow that it is literally drowning towns like a firehose while nearby towns have no worries. My area hasn't seen anything more than some mild breezes and a gentle rain. So Gem is not in any danger. We'll see what tonight brings. It's a quarter til Midnight and I'm a little blasted from some Jack Daniels while we played games (all my boys came over).

By the way, for those who've never had a chance to raise kids and spend time with them as adults, I heartily recommend it. I am a little stunned to realize that, beyond the parenting stuff, I actually LIKE these guys

Glad to hear it goes well for you so far Gem. May it continue to do so.

The weather in my area would make a Londoner laugh - very mild breezes and gentle misting rain. Oh well. I bought flashlights and $300 worth of non-perishables, which I'll just save for the next issue.

For a few minutes I lived in the future...
My laptop changed to 18 September 3118, and wasn't changing back :o

For a second I thought this was a true book, and I thought it was quite strange, until I noticed the previous post ;D
I'm just laughing to myself, now

Annoying is good. Watch the first 5 minutes of The Rain and find out that the most important child in the world has you hoping the little brat gets eaten. An utter lack of character empathy is created and YA, Annoying and dystopian future made me think of the opening scenes of that programme a far better title.
