Looks to be a really bad time. Glad it is forecasted north of us.

I’m not on the coast, but they are projecting a direct hit and major issues for us - high winds, flooding, widespread power outages

I have a customer in Beaufort.  They emailed me today saying that they have a mandatory evac by Tuesday at noon eastern.  It seems like most projections are saying north of Charleston with Wilmington being a sort of ground zero... at least for now.

Models have shifted further south. Hilton Head evacuations. Now parts of Georgia might be in the mix.

I did this as well last night. My wife is in surgery right now so there is a good chance we will be riding out the storm in the hospital.

I'm in Toronto right now. Get back to Dulles on Thurs night. If the flight to Richmond is cancelled I can still rent a car and drive the 90 mins to get to the family. I think our towns worry is just flooding though.
