You should be fine if you're leaving on Wednesday. Here's the current timeline. Subject to change, of course.

If you're moving to NC, you have to get used to it. I saw seven hurricanes during my years in the coastal plane of NC. You get used to it, and if you don't get killed, can be kind of exciting.

If you are driving back saturday, just keep an eye (no pun intended) because here in the northeast they anticipate us getting rain and winds from it either sat or sunday but that keeps changing too -

LOL! Thunder and lightening are rolling in here now along with rain. My DH says that a weather forecaster is the only job he knows of where they can so often be wrong and still keep their job

As grateful as I am for the rain I hope we don't have the downed trees, downed power poles, power outages here in the Triad that we did with Roberto. My prayers are with those in the coastal areas.

Getting offline now.

Hey startpackinn,
Go ahead and leave to NC. I'm in Miami and the storm feels like your everyday shower nothing big. Mountains in Haiti destroyed the storm so all we're having is light winds with some showers. Its not even raining right now so don't worry.
