    I just watched a shark go sideways through that water :lol:

    They seem to otherwise be just normal, other than the occasional strong push of current.

      This thing is just getting started to beat up the NC coast and this is common up and down the beach already.

      Here's a live cam from the pier at Emerald Isle NC

      The feed is intermittent so if cuts out wait--should be back shortly.

      Latest from NHC. It's forward speed is only 10mph---nearly stationery. It's slowing down and appears to be starting the stall.

      Video of swaying pier at Atlantic Beach, NC. Live cam I think so it's just gonna run on and on....the swaying seems to start around the 57:00--one hour mark....noticeably swaying around. I can't imagine it will survive.

        Tilly hit on the big negative of bailing prior to these storms arrival. Once you leave, you're not getting back to your property until the local constables are damn good and ready to let you back. Also a lot of shelters and motels don't allow pets.

          Just updating. Eye passed over.
          Lost a tree on my mother in laws car....busted her back window. We cut up the tree and tarped the car during the lull. Back half is reving up now and may prove the toughest part for our local beaches...after the ones north got pounded yesterday.

            Hey. Chas was a nothing burger.....no rain etc. I actually got to go on my vacation for the weekend. So all good.

            But if you really liked Chas. that much, I would have seen you in the last 4 or 5 years.... I mean every year I show up at the Spurrier Statute looking for you.....least you could do is come on to Chas.....

              Trust me. I wish I had been there in the last 4-5 years. Damn life and other BS getting in the way.

              BTW, my parents are coming back for SEWE next year. Damn duck people.

              Glad everything stayed dry and you got to get your trip in.
