...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH
MONDAY EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Blacksburg has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of North Carolina and southwest
Virginia, including the following areas, in North Carolina,
Alleghany NC, Ashe, Caswell, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry,
Watauga, Wilkes, and Yadkin. In southwest Virginia, Carroll,
Floyd, Grayson, and Patrick.

* From Saturday morning through Monday evening

* Heavy rain from Florence will lead to flash flooding across the
area, especially by Saturday afternoon and evening into Monday.
5 to 10 inches of rain are expected, with locally higher amounts
of a foot or more possible along the Blue Ridge.

* Life-threatening flash flooding may develop as heavy rain bands
occur this weekend into Monday. Streams and creeks may rise
quickly during heavy rain and flood. Larger rivers eventually
may rise to flood stage as well.

* Rainfall of more than five inches in similar storms has been
associated with an increased risk of landslides and rock slides.
If you live on a mountainside or in a cove at the base of a
mountain...especially near a stream...be ready to leave in
advance of the storm or as quickly as possible should rising
water...moving earth...or rocks threaten. Consider postponing
travel along mountain roads during the period of heavy rainfall.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
Remember...TURN AROUND...DON'T DROWN!

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

Power out around 5. I’ll give about another hour then start getting generator in place. Really not bad here at moment but radar shows coming this way.

Worst possible scenario, you've got this storm coming right up the mountains, and with the upsloping on the mountains it'll wring the rain right out of the clouds. Better ditch the boat idea, and start building an ark.

Looks like the eye of the storm went directly over Carolina Beach, which is where I was supposed to be camping right now.

I am happy if Sam Mac keeps the rain on his side of the mountain,, rather than letting it slip over to my side of the mountain,,,

According to accuweather, at 11:00 am it was only a cat 1, wind speed of about 81 and gusts of 98. It's lost almost half its strength. Let's pray it goes down to under that. I have no idea if that's accurate, so don't take my word for it.

We only got 6.5 " here SE of Raleigh, but it's still raining. Cubs are under cover, the trees are right side up and we didn't lose power for real long, though the gennie was gassed up and I had 15 gal in cans.

I'll get the generator out tomorrow, drain the gas into a spare can, the run it till it's dry and put it away for another year or two. That thing ALWAYS starts on the first pull (Briggs 9HP vanguard)

I got a FB notification from Jenn that they're ok.

I don't think there's much power in their part of NC!

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
