Yeah, I'm thinking about if there's anything I need to stock up on; trying to make a plan 'B' for stuff I can cook on the camp stove. I always have bread, peanut butter, canned soups & stove-top Mac & Cheese.

Plus I have bullion cubes, noodles, canned tuna & chicken, fresh & canned veggies. If I get through this one, next time, I'll get a case of MREs to keep in the house.

There's not that much perishable food in my fridge. It's still full of film & photographic paper. The only thing I really desperately need the fridge for is to keep the ice maker going.

I guess I'm about as prepared as I can get, but I'm still trying to think of any additional things I might do to get ready.

Up to Category 4 this afternoon. Current predicted track is straight up I-40 from Wilmington. AFAIK, the only Cat 4 storm to hit NC was Hazel in 1954.

Florence is more or less on the same predicted track as Fran back in 1996 (and Hazel in 1954 although there was no I-40 back then).

Hugo was Cat 4 when it made landfall at Charleston, SC. I've seen some reports Florence may reach Cat 5 before it hits. We've never had a Cat 5 here AFAIK. Hurricane Floyd was Cat 2 when it hit (September 16), but it stalled and dropped 19 inches of rain on top of the 15 inches of rain from Dennis (September 4)

I have my generator gassed up, so I should be able to keep my refrigerator going. I've got 5 gallons of water and my chain-saw is gassed up. I've got my camp stove with 3 bottles of gas so I think I'll be able to feed myself.

If the power goes out I won't have internet, so if you don't hear from me for a while you'll know why.

It ain't lookin' good. I hope I don't lose my roof again.
