As she approached the coast, Florence is weakening. She is now a Category 2 storm, with sustained winds of 110 mph. However, she’s become larger, spreading out, with a larger band size and is expected to drop a lot of rain in a lot of places. Langley Air Force Base in Virginia has flown its planes out an into Ohio. Virginia had heavy rains last weekend, so they are expected to flood.

Georgia is also now expected to flood. We are part of the LowCountry; marshes and low lying barrier islands. As a result, my school system is closed tomorrow. She is going to make landfall at both Carolina borders and then turn south before heading north west. Georgia mountains (my parents) will see a lot of rain from this.

It’s going to be a wet weekend.

Meaning I think I’m going to do some writing. whoot!

If you are in the path of this storm, please please please move inland and on to higher ground.

Oh and I am soon to be the proud owner of 2 pairs of REALLY cute mules!!!Β  (not the hee haw kind!)

Have some Richard!
