I live on the North Carolina coast. We are being hit right now with Hurricane Irene, it is a lot better than first predicted, but most of downtown in flooded, I was lucky enough to choose my apartment out of the flood zone which is most of the town. Most of my friends are headed here for safety, many of their places have already started to flood and almost everyone has lost power. My plans for this hurricane: work on my screens for screen-printing. Good plan. :)
Highest winds now at 115 mph.
