Aunt Flo has come to visit.

Hurricane Florence, that is. At the time of this writing she's a Cat 1, about 35 miles off of Wilmington and moving at 6 MPH, which will put her at the shoreline at about 8 AM unless she puts some pep in her step.

So far at the Refuge just north of Raleigh we have some wind blowing the treetops around, enough rain to keep the ground wet, and that's about it. The power and cable is still on and I still have cell phone reception.

There is still quite a bit of storm left to go so keep coastal Carolinas in your prayers, the large size and slow speeds of the storm is going to keep the storm surge up for quite some time, which means flash flooding and high water is going to continue to be a problem for a while.

In other news, my barrel came in for the Glock 19, so as soon as possible I'm going to have to get another range day in to sight it back in.

Here in Hampton Roads we were watching its slow approach when it was a Cat 4 and it looked like it might take a hit. We sortied the fleet early on Monday and then just watched and waited. It gradually decreased in string and shifted it course further south. My friend in Morehead city came out all right and Duke Power was on top of everything as soon as it passed.

Hopefully this will be the last one of the season.

One can hope.
