I'm just glad that it'll likely be passing to my southeast. That'll put me on the "good" side of the storm, so I'll probably just get an inch or two of rain from Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon, and tropical-depression-force winds. It'll feel nice after the relentless 90s from mid-May to last week. If this is what it takes to put a merciful end to this **** for the year, then so be it. Bring it on.

The last thing I wanted was another Opal, which came screaming on shore at a high rate of speed and passed west of Atlanta, putting me on the "bad" side of the storm with strong tropical-storm-force winds. My family moved into a brand-new house that summer, and we had to refasten some of the vinyl siding and roof shingles that blew off. Listening to the big trees splintering during the strongest wind gusts freaked me out too.

P.S .. You're going to run out of CityData attachment space. I'd hate for you to start deleting photos to make room for new ones on C-D. All the previous threads will have missing photos in your posts. Have you considered using another hosting site like Imgur? Its very easy to use and free.

sure appreciate these threads, you all do great work. TWC is nothing but Hollywood wannabes and I'm grateful for the knowledge and updates. I'm in SC two hours inland and have learned to rely on CD/weather/hurricane/psycoma cambium and more!
