Re: Tracking Hurricane Dorian

Charleston was no longer in the Cone an hour ago, but the storm is back up to a Cat 3 with sustained winds of 115mph, moving due North at 9mph. Waiting for the midnight update and then I'm going to catch some sleep and wake up at daylight.

Update is in, the Cone is closer again, but not on us. The storm has slowed down to 7mph, due North, Cat 3. This is going to be close. The frogs are loving it, they are so loud right now. Getting some shut eye, cheers.

Re: Tracking Hurricane Dorian

I've been up since about 5:30. The power was flickering badly when I woke, then it it went out for five seconds. Kicked back in and my router rebooted, no loss of Internet. So that's about ten minutes, the power goes out again, I'm thinking "That's it." Ten seconds later the power kicks in, ten minutes and I'm jamming Internet radio again. I have a leaky roof for sure, there's a big water stain on my ceiling and the carpet is damp in the corner of the room. It was steady fifty mile an hour winds for hours, now it's gusting to fifty. No flooding in my building so far, and it doesn't look like it will. We're very lucky the storm slowed and avoided high tide.

My hat is off to South Carolina Gas & Electric, they are working their asses off right now to continue service for first responders (and me) in downtown Charleston. And thanks to Comcast for giving me continuous service during a Cat 3 hurricane. For once, Comcast FTW.

The Monster is still due south of us and looking very comfortable, but I'm feeling better about my decision to stay put.

Re: Tracking Hurricane Dorian

I've been following this thread closely. Also been staying in touch with a good friend of mine as this thing approaches; he works at ECU, and I understand that area (Greenville NC) saw a lot of flooding from Floyd, 20 years ago this month. My friend says ECU is closing today at noon.

Re: Tracking Hurricane Dorian

Just found this thread ... awesome read.  Wife has been watching it on her cell phone with a link from the Space Station.

One hell of a storm is all I can say.

She told me a bout one woman that gathered yp 90 stray dogs, kept them in her house until the storm passed then let them out again.  AWESOME!

Glad you're safe Has

Re: Tracking Hurricane Dorian

I hate being right. Over 200,000 homes without power now in the Charleston suburbs. Downtown, I've lost power for 15 seconds at 6 this morning. Where do you think Dominion (they just bought SCG&E) is going to put their resources to combat a hurricane... Restore power to the police, fire department, public works, transportation and city government offices of Charleston, or to the bank managers in Edisto Island?

I'm such a cynic.

Looks like Charleston is getting it now, according to the map.

Re: Tracking Hurricane Dorian

Nope, the worst was between 5am and noon when we had heavy rain with steady 50mph winds. The storm's over now. I never lost power again. Rode my bicycle to get beer and cigs at a convenience store just after sunset, there was just the usual minor flooding in the usual places.

Charleston, where we eat Cat 3s for breakfast.

Piece of cake. I can't believe the power stayed on the whole time, though.
