In full storm retreat mode.

Well I took the trailer down to Kiptopeke SP last night and set up, we were spending the holiday weekend with 3 other families there. Went back down today with the boys after work and were greeted by 4 rangers at the guard shack. The look on their faces told me I was getting bad news. The park was being closed and everyone had to pack up and leave due to the storm that might come. I asked how long do we have before we have to leave, he said ''not long". But he did say we would get a full refund. I was tired and was ready to crash for awhile after working then fighting the traffic to get there, but alas had to pack up and leave post haste, once again fight aforementioned traffic to get back home.
But I feel more sorry for those that had long distances to travel or those that have not arrived yet and do not know its closed. I suppose some would camp at wallyworld etc for the night if they had too far to go, campgrounds are likely booked for the holiday weekend away from the coast. Bummer. But we can`t fight mother nature. Trailer is back here at the house and plugged in waiting to be emptied.

Crabman - been watching the radar real close here... It has been creeping up the coast since getting dark here and the heavy rain boundries finally engulfed the Norfolk areas.. Now it is getting closer to Petersburg and Glocester. We are up at King George and Dahlgren near the Bridge over the Potomac...

I think it is going to make it to the Ocean before it comes over us here in King George County...

Then our next threat is when it starts picking up strength again and the feeder bands starts coming at us from the NE then... It is suppose to sort of stall out just as it gets to the Ocean city area and the feeder bands start up again.

So far so good...

Don't need any storms here tonight.

Be Thankful

Be thankful we lost some roofing and went without power for 24 hours. Lots of trees down roads closed and homes damaged. There were a few people who lost their homes and some lost their life.

Oh I`m all too familiar with hurricane related damage. My business property was badly damaged in 1985 Gloria, 1999 Floyd, and 2012 Sandy. And I had damage here at the house in a few storms as well from downed trees.

The same evacuation order was received by me this past Wednesday morning at the Florida State Park where I have been hosting since May 1. Pack up and take everything you own with you. I traveled 42 miles NW and checked into a private campground for 2 nights and came back here Friday morning after the storm passed. It was a very minimal storm when it passed by Panama City and virtually no rain or wind here at the park. I have been watching the news/weather and you are getting it a lot worse than we did, but then Panama City wasn't hit directly either.

You are correct, don't fight mother nature. Glad you got your rig and yourselves home OK.

We took a few precautions and had some rain and pretty strong gusts but come morning we only had limbs and debris. No real damage. Two blocks over a falling pecan tree destroyed 2 cars and a roof.

Power was out for only a few hours.

We had to cancel our labor day plans a few months ago due to a scheduling conflict. We were supposed to be in Ocean city this weekend, but looks like we didn't miss anything. My wifes cousins are down there now and say that most campers are staying. I'm almost glad we didn't get to go this wkend.

We managed to miss most of it. Had 1.9 inches of rain at our house but we were already set up at Whitewater Park about 30 miles away. Very little rain and hardly any wind. We made out great but really feel for those that got caught in the path. Prayers out for those who suffered. Stay safe everyone.

Outer banks

A suspected tornado spun off from Hermine hit a campground on the NC Outer Banks. Fortunately no one was killed but several campers were totaled. That had to be very frightening.

And a truck driver was killed on Alligator bridge when his truck overturned in 80+ winds.

Darn shame on the timing of this storm. Ruined a lot of good camping trips.
