Well in the 11 O’clock news tonight the weather guesser’s are predicting Germaine will pass a few miles east of me so it might get interesting for a few hours. Not to worry I have plenty of food, water, gas, beer, ammo and first aid supplies. We are on the borderline separating the 5-inchs to 9-inchs of rain but even with the 15-inches of rain from Floyd we were above the flood line. I just hope we do not lose power since it is hard to watch TV by candlelight. I do worry about the people on the Outerbanks since they will get the brunt of the storm.
