Gonna be a long weekend on the East Coast.

As much as I bitch about some things in Illinois, other than some miserable hot days, we're pretty fortunate here.

The warning cone has definitely taken a turn to the left (south).

I thought I might have trouble flying next Monday, now it looks like no problem.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

Florence is a medium sized City with an amazing historic center and museums and wonderful food and wine....oh never mind.

No question it’s going to be an awful hurricane for many.  Just interesting how difficult hurricanes are still to predict in terms of where it is headed and timing.

Update as of 5A EDT.  "As of 5 a.m. EDT it was about 205 miles ESE of Wilmington, North Carolina and about 250 miles ESE Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, moving northwest at 15 mph".

"Duke Energy, the nation's No. 2 power company, said Florence could knock out electricity to three-quarters of its 4 million customers in the Carolinas, and outages could last for weeks."

"The National Hurricane Center's best guess was that Florence would blow ashore as early as Friday afternoon around the North Carolina-South Carolina line."

I just got a great deal on Air BnB for an ocean front rental in Carolina Beach. See all of you losers later.

Carolina coastline to be battered by hurricane conditions for more than 24 hours straight.

"Download the free AccuWeather app to stay up-to-date with Florence’s expected track and impacts to the U.S."

This is a pretty detailed account.  

So frightening for so many people . . . I wonder how many residents, over the years, have arranged for "vacation cabins"  waaay over yonder to have themselves a bolthole for times like this.  I wonder how many will be stuck sleeping in their cars in Tennessee because accommodations ran out.

Very worrisome.

Outer bands from the hurricane are now lashing land, at least a full day before the National Hurricane Center expects the slow-moving storm's eye to blow ashore around the North Carolina-South Carolina line.

As of 10 a.m., more than 7,000 people had taken refuge inside of the 108 shelters the state has opened for Florence evacuees.

Go here for a high-up view of Florence.  "Monster" doesn't cover it.  https://abc11.com/weather/watch-live-tr ... s/4229794/

Also:

Peak Lab Rescue, the largest foster-based dog rescue in NC, has been fervently removing dogs facing euthanasia in eastern NC shelters ahead of Hurricane Florence.

In coastal counties with mandatory evacuations like Carteret County, animals are usually left behind with no one to care for them. Peak Lab is striving to rescue these pups, as well as the ones who are left outside shelters under unstable cover.
