    If Florence stays centered on the projected path, I’ll see some tropical storm gusts, but not much more than that. If Florence the hurricane decides to visit Florence, SC, I’ll catch a good bit more, but will still be out of the main force of the storm. If she slides to the south more than that, she’ll come right up I-26 and I’ll be on the weather side of her.

    Not wishing destruction on anybody, but I’d just as soon she stayed to the north.

    No worries. Florence will have spent most of her force on Florence by the time she gets here. The current forecast track has the eye (or what’s left of it) passing about 20 miles north, as a rapidly-weakening tropical storm turning into a tropical depression. Max sustained winds 45-50, with gusts up to 60, and that only on the leading edge.

    No flooding. We’re between three different watersheds; everything flows out. If we’re flooded here, the Colorado River is a salt-water estuary all the way back to Hoover Dam!
