I don't think I've ever been properly prepared for a "disaster" ...I do think people who live in places like NC and FL tend to be a little more unflappable, naturally, in this kind of thing just like people in CA are less freaked out by earthquakes because they're so common.

    But then all of those people stayed in New Orleans when Katrina hit and then look what happened there. Let it be a lesson to us all to GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM THE WATER, PEOPLE.
    Hurricane Fran?!! What a name for a hurricane. Take care, people.

    Wilmington, NC FTW! I used to live an hour outside of there... A cool little city with some interesting personal memories tied to it.

    My family is tryingto fly back east but the hurricane has delayed any flight into Newark or any of the airports in and around manhattan. Best of luck to everyone in a similar situation. I hope anyone who is in need if shelter can find it with ease. I am lucky to be in central new York and I am likely to see just the remnants if Irene

    This was in the afternoon. Apparently the center of storm made landfall about twenty miles from here, I wasn't expecting such high winds. Went for a short drive to the gas station and lots of roofs either missing shingles or missing entirely. There was one roof that had been ripped from a house and landed topside down in the front yard. A few houses had trees squatting in attics and front porches and lots of debris all over the road. Theres some minor damage to this house and a lot of stuff that I had tied down on Friday was strewn across the pastures. I'll be doing some cleanup today Looks like New York is getting "pounded" too <333
