  • Five Feet High and Risen



    It's more than 5 ft here, or it was before it started to recede

    Hurricane Mathew made a visit to Northeaster North Carolina last Saturday night and dropped around 14 inches of rain on our area. I made out fine but a lot of others didn't fair so well , Mathew won't be soon forgotten. Here's a few links that show some the flooded areas.

        gear is easier to replace than people...do you have flood insurance?

            the paper cones will likely not retain their character if they were soaked.

                    We made it without too much aggravation. We're still recovering from last October's flood. Fortunately, the new house just lost a few trees. There's a couple more I have to get taken down before they fall on my shop. The old house got flooded again. If I had rebuilt and stayed there, I'd have been really pissed. We lost power for five days, but I learned from the ice storm and flood of recent years. The generator was ready to go, so we kept the refrigerator and freezer going and had a few lamps burning. It's amazing how much difference a lamp vs. candles makes. My daughter's house a little further north in Florence caught a big tree and sustained a good bit of damage. She and her family moved in with us yesterday. It's been a long time since there was a toddler in the house.We're just glad to have all made it through safely. There were some who didn't. There's still a lot of cleanup to be done, but it could have been a lot worse. I just hope we don't have a catastrophic weather event EVERY October. I'm ready for a break.

                      Glad you and yours came through without too much personal loss...sadly, there are always some people who refuse to prepare, or react appropriately to these types of disasters.
                      I was thinking about how your axes got soaked last year...

                        Thanks, DM. As our other guitarist's illness has progressed, I bought him out of our PA. That pretty much took care of the amp and axe repair money. They did get dried out and at least a superficial cleaning, but that was as far as I got. Maybe one of these days. I just try to remind myself to be grateful for the blessings I have.

                        Thanks for reporting in Swampy and I'm glad to hear you are alright. Things here are slowly getting back to normal for most of us in this area.
