Or almost. My friends Evelyn and Lewis are scheduled to arrive in North Carolina this evening, flying into the airport closest to my home town. They're coming just to see this part of the world for the first time, and to visit with me.
I love to buy and cook shrimp when I'm in North Carolina.
About three hours ago, a tornado touched down near Belhaven, N.C., about two hours north of where I am. A band of heavy thunderstorms is moving south to north right now, between here and the airport. My sister and I will be leaving in a few minutes to drive up there and pick up E & L. Wish us luck.

The next two days are going to be busy, assuming E & L get here tonight. Flights coming from Charlotte might be delayed or canceled. We'll see.
