Hey folks, we are looking to be in a good position for riding out this storm here in Abbeville, SC. (Just about on the SC/GA border, just off Rt 72.) We won't be dry, but we won't be flooded up on our hill. Can't promise we won't lose power for a bit, but we have room for a couple-few folks if you need it. Also have a three stall horse barn you can shelter some pets in. Know those of you most likely to need this are hunkered down now, but if afterwards you need somewhere, pm me.

You're all in my thoughts and prayers.

I had evacuated to PA before the storm hit. I had already registered for the Keystone Clash weekend and since I had to go somewhere so I figured that would be as good a place to go as any. My family had left the day before for FLA. The storm did not hit us all that hard here in Myrtle Beach but when it came time to come home, many roads in North Carolina were already flooded or washed out. I finally got tired of waiting and decided to chance a run home on Wednesday morning. I had to drive out to Durham, then Charlotte and finally to Columbia in order to get home. Only 14 hours of driving, only stopping for gas and a Smithfield BBQ dinner in Durham. The roads to Myrtle Beach were still open Wednesday evening but Rt. 22 closed on Thursday. Quite the odyssey but at least I'm home now while several rivers are continuing to flood. By the way, I saw fellow NANFAn Mike Lucas at the Keystone clash.

Thank you for the update Harry. Im glad your safe! As the waters recede and you have time to safely explore, I am curious to hear your perception of the changes to your local waterways. Stay safe!
