    I don't know what's wrong with me - I didn't even know this was here already and that it became a tropical storm. I got my mother back to her place after an appointment right before it started to rain really hard.

    Stay safe and dry, Star.

    Sounds like 8 inches of rain and 55mph winds Starista. But it looks like it will move out quickly. Will school be canceled?

    My county just announced school is in session. However, I would guess that many will keep their kids home from school if the past is any indicator of the future.

    UGH. I'm the same, Upsadaisy - I had no idea until we got an email from the superintendent.

    It's been drizzly all day (with an awesome lightening show on the way to work this morning), but no hard rain yet.

    School is still in session for tomorrow but with warnings to watch the news/listen to the radio/check the district website in the AM in case we do have winds over 35.

    Well Nicole hit North Carolina ....
    Rain, rain and more rain
    North Carolina's governor proclaimed a state of emergency
    We had a number of roads closed due to washouts, on our street some houses down the hill are inundated with about 2 feet of water.
    Did I say More rain?

    Sorry to hear that Irish Dave. Everything at your house ok? My brother lives near Raleigh Durham and I haven't heard from him, guess I should check if he is ok.
