    A snowflake can drop 2 hours away from our center and they shut the place down but let 70+ mph winds sweep through and we’re good to go!! :1036316054:

    I've seen what happens in Charlotte when a snowflake drops. They're wise to shut the place.

    This storm has changed track so many times there’s no telling where it’s going to go... latest does put it closer to CLT but I’m sure that can change a few more times...

    Be safe, y'all. Word is this one could be the worst since Hazel. Which means even I might feel it!

    Media hype as usual! I evacuated JAX a couple years back for what was billed as worst to hit JAX ever. Turned out to be a joke. Soon as it was about to hit dead on, it just traveled up the coast with minor flooding and some downed trees
    These news outlets thrive on getting folks panties in a bunch

    Still a flooding risk to some. The random tornado threat covers a pretty big area. Everyone be safe.

    https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/hazards.php

    "Hurricanes and tropical storms can also produce tornadoes. These tornadoes most often occur in thunderstorms embedded in rain bands well away from the center of the hurricane; however, they can also occur near the eyewall. Usually, tornadoes produced by tropical cyclones are relatively weak and short-lived, but they still pose a significant threat."
