Welcome to IWETHEY!

New I'll take a non-event hurricane every time!
That's good news, Doug.

Having lived through Hurricane Hugo here in Charlotte in 1979, I have some idea of what it's like. It was actually the "tail-end" of Hugo. "Only" a max of 90 mph when it got to Charlotte, NC vs. 140 mph when it hit Charleston, SC. Nonetheless, windows were sucked out of those tall bank buildings uptown, and my home was without power for 12 days. One gets sensitized to the effect these tropical storms.

Glad to hear you got a pass on this one.

New Re: I'll take a non-event hurricane every time!

Yup we were lucky - have heard real horror stories about some of the bad ones in past years here.

Also had the oppotuntiy to work in Cary N.C. in 1999 & went for a trip to the outter banks - now that would be a scary place to be in a big cyclone.

I still find it strange to think of all those house built with hollow 1st floors, just to let the tidal surge thru with minimal obstruction.

Cheers

Doug
