Another problem they are causing by doing this, in the future, when a truly dangerous storm comes along, no one will believe them, people wont take precautions, (the boy who cried wolf too many times).

Watching the so-called news this morning was both amusing and disheartening. Florence took a pass but with all the gethering of news people perched to make their lying statements, they had to do and say something. So they shrieked and carried on as if the world were ending. And they wonder why sane people laugh at them.

BS like this is why I canceled my cableTV subscription years ago.

Watch Weather Nation (Roku or FireTV) or your local news via OTA if you want to see better coverage than that mess on the cable channels.

Its OK Waldo and I are starting to see the rain and wind. The issue will be for trees coming down in our area.

While the storm is now moving at 2 miles an hour. All the dangers that we have been warned about are coming in slow motion.

Did you see the local NBC reporter standing in the water on a boat ramp at Mountain Island Lake Thursday? Water got to the top of her rubber boots and she proclaimed "gee, I can't go any deeper than this". They have completely lost their mind.


So far, we are still mostly unaffected by it here at Lake Norman. Just a little rain some gusts.

Yup. Just saw the Tree down in Charlotte. A lot of the older trees and young pines will be coming down.


Too many seem to think everything is going to happen quickly. This storm will be a slow motion problem as it moves past us.

I have taken some trees down this past spring. I now wish I had taken some more down.

So far the NW part of Mecklenburg around the Lake is still mostly unaffected. But sure. It's much much worse for those East and South of here. My prayers to them all.

Yesterday we had around .6 inches of Rain. So far today we are around an inch. Our Local fire company has put out a warning, they expect between 6 - 12 inches in the next 2 days.

Haha. WSOC reporter complaining that it wasn't raining on N. Tryon. And their coverage is probably the best in the area.

Watch Weather Nation instead if you want real reporting without all the fake news manufactured drama.
I don't know if I can trust any of these weather outlets. Friends and I have been doing some experiments lately where we compare the local news radar in the area to what is really happening, and we just have to shake our heads at how misinformed the actual radar is. We used to be able to check it to see if lightning will be in the area about 10-15 years ago so we know if we could go horseback riding or not, and it used to be very accurate. But lately, it will show clouds forming over where it's sunny as can be, or show no cloud developments while there is a bad thunderstorm going on.
