When I got up at 7:00 this morning, here's what I saw off the balcony of the condo where I've been staying for a week now.
The remnants of a tropical storm (named Nestor, it's a wind- and rainstorm) are supposed to blow through Carteret County, N.C. tonight and into tomorrow morning.
I'll be packing my bags, carrying them down to my rented car, cleaning and straightening up the condo, and moving out tomorrow morning — in the rain, forecasts say. Morehead City and Carteret County are under the HEAVIEST RAIN label on the map above.
There is talk of heavy rain (6 inches or so — 150 mm), gusty wind, and the possibility of severe thunderstorms and the stray tornado. I hope this kind of storm doesn't come through on the day I'm scheduled to drive up to RDU airport and then fly out — headed for Paris.
