    Do you think that a movie will be made about this in the next couple of years?

    And if so, will it be in 3D with cutting edge CGI impressive enough to deem plot and character development unnecessary?

    Will it make the perfect storm and The Perfect Storm look like a light rain shower?

    Oh no doubt it will make money!

    I've been watching the weather channel and I'm thinking about y'all on the east coast. As it turns out this is a category 1 hurricane, but just as bad as a category 2 because of the enormity in size of this thing; it just keeps going and going. When everyone that's in the path of this storm gets back online, please report how you're doing with pics.

    Hang in there!! Be safe!

    Ugh, I'm up north, and seems like they are not sure up here. They want us to be prepared, but I have a sense that we will be fine. I have to work tomorrow though, (nurse) and am trying to figure out some doggy daycare, I'm in a home that could easily flood and have a lot of issues. I'm thinking I may bring him to work and keep him in a crate there.

    Good idea! I bet your pup will appreciate that.

    Yeah, it may be rough going for a few hours as the storm passes through, but it's nothing you can't ride out, if you’re hunkered down in a safe place. Hopefully it loses strength by the time it gets to you, but you're right about flooding. Everyone in its path should take flooding into consideration and make sure pets and important documents/possessions are on higher ground. If you work in a hospital, that's a safe place to be. They should also have backup power generators. North Carolina reported upwards near 90 MPH winds this morning.

    Unfortunately, I work in a rehab/ nursing home, (which means I will be in charge of part of the building) and have to make it a safe place to be. The building seems pretty secure though, and the second a warning hits, I'm making those necessary phone calls. I don't want to complicate work by bringing the dog, but I also don't want to complicate work by leaving him in a possibly unsafe home and having to deal with the dog from afar on top of dealing with the building, and my heart breaks every time I think of bringing him to a kennel for the night.

    The rain just started here. I'd say my immediate area's biggest concern is the flooding, especially since most of us are either right by the ocean or bay. Some crazy people have stayed near the ocean, even gallivanted on the beach earlier, despite a lot of mandatory evacuations going on .

    A lot of people on my facebook are having hurricane parties if they are staying put in their homes. Can't do much better after making all of the recommended preparations . I know I've got my Sangria lol

    Sounds like they're in good hands.

    The latest weather report is that the eye of this storm is getting really well organized. Possibly gaining strength?

    I've got to sign off now. I'm thinking about y'all. Keep the faith!

    A surfer drowned about 10 miles from where I'm bunkering down. Apparently, he lost his board while out in the water. His friends ran in and rescued him, but he died at the hospital. As his friends left the hospital they told the news they were headed back to the beach for some more surfing.

    Actually though, things are pretty calm right now.

    It's pretty rainy and windy here, but we still have power. Nearly a million don't.
