    The U.S. Navy evacuated about 30 ships from Virginia several days ago to protect them from this hurricane.

    This dude is coo-coo for cocoa puffs to try to ride out the storm in his boat. Although I do recall a couple of dudes down in Florida last year who road out Irma aboard their boat. They survived none the worse for the wear, so while it's a totally daft idea, it's not impossible.

    I wish him a boatload of luck (ha!). He'll need it.

    My nephew is on one of those ships. He was able to call briefly before they left port. Fun fact, the ship he is on was just used to film scenes for the new Topgun movie.

    This guy is one of many that have decided to ride it out on their boats. Most of them are hunkered down in the intercoastal waterway boat/houseboat communities. If I lived on a houseboat, I would have been moving it!

    Hey Everyone,

    If you haven't started yet could members who are around the affected areas please check in on this thread when you can to let us know you are alright? I know it might not be for a few days but I hope everyone checks in. We have many members in the path of this ungodly storm.

    Thanks for keeping this thread going. It warms my heart to see you all care for strangers so much.

    I’m in Durham, NC. So far only the outer most bands here. Gusts to 25 mph and light rain. We aren’t supposed to get anything awful now that the path has moved south.

    As much as I would love to live in a house on the beach, I don't think Nature ever intended for us to build permanent structures that close to the ocean.

    I would be projectile hurling if I was out at sea during a storm like this. Just watching the video gives me vertigo. A million moons ago, I lived in Tampa and went deep-sea fishing with a friend. I spent the entire time miserably seasick.

    I guess I'm a hopeless landlubber. Land ho!

    Ima - I tried to reply to your post with the above video, but it kept going wonky on me, so I just copied the url of the video, instead. Thanks for posting it!
