    My thoughts are with any of you who live in the path of this monster storm, it must be terrifying for you. I just hope that you and yours, both human and pets manage to stay safe.

    Recent weather forecasts say there has been a shift in the storm and will greatly impact South Carolina. I live in Spartanburg County. Hopefully everyone has evacuated the coast. I'm more worried about possible tornadoes spawning from this storm. I used to live in Texas and I really don't want to go that route again. We had one here on my street last year (October 23rd) and it was an EF2. There were 2 that were about a mile from each other that came through my neighborhood. It was bad but not the worst I've seen. Either way, they scare the shit out of me....and lightning....I hide from it, lol!!!

    Tornados scare the hell out of me too. I have nightmares about them.

    It's funny because I love a good thunderstorm, it's the high winds that come with tornados and hurricanes that would scare me most.

    On tv I just saw a lady in Wilmington walking her dog. Its feet never touched the ground! Looked like she was walking a dog balloon..

    I think we should also send our thoughts to any affected by Typhoon Mangkhut which has been overshadowed by Florence but I know we have members here from the Philippines so here's hoping you are all safe.
