We have chosen NOT to publish an edition of our Ramblings this week. Parts of the state are currently in a State of Emergency as they prepare for the arrival of Hurricane Florence.
In addition, many other sections are bracing for the rain and other side effects that come with a major storm making landfall. We want all residents and visitors to take precautions, and follow the guidelines and warnings issued by local officials.
We have personally experienced 3 major hurricanes and dozens of smaller storms and subtropical depressions. It is not fun. Our blog from just a year ago (Hurricane Travel?) shares information. While we are no longer living in the path of a storm we are still preparing for its effects on our area some 4 hours from the coast.
Our hearts and mind are with our friends boarding up their homes, and gathering up their possessions as they plan to caravan west to safety.
Be SAFE North Carolina!!
