Looks like hurricanes season is finally producing some results. I need to know a cheap place to buy toilet paper. I want to make sure I know a place to get that stuff cheap before a hurricane hits. You can never have too much TP!

How bad does it get in Charlotte during hurricane season? Do I really have to worry about stocking up on TP and water and food and stuff?? (Honest question... I'm moving to Charlotte in a little over a month, so I guess I should learn these things)

No.
Hugo (1989) was the only one that really wreaked havoc on CLT.

I might be wrong, but I don't see it getting terribly bad in Charlotte. I'm pretty sure if a Cat 4 or 5 you would definitely get some strong winds but nothing like east of Fayetteville or Raleigh of course. But then again, I've never been in Charlotte when a hurricane hit . Looks like South Carolina would slow a lot of the wind down.

Hurricanes or no, you should always have a supply of:

1. Toilet paper
2. Water
3. Non perishable foods
4. Bullets
5. Guns

You never know when disaster may strike and you may need these things.
