Keeping in mind the beautiful events which unfolded in NOLA recently . . .

If you lived in NC and your governor asked you to evacuate . .

Would you leave your property and home as requested?

Or, would you stay to protect everything you've spent a lifetime working for?

For me? Damn, it's a tough call. I know I like my junk, and my house, and dogs.

What do y'all think?

Not sure I'd run from a Catagory 1.

Well, NC is not in a bowl the way NOLA is.

Above sea level - Check
Reasonably strong house - Check
Proper storm prep - Check
Provisions - Check
Tools - Check

I'll brave a Cat. 1. Send my family away to stay, and I'll stick with the homestead. My house won't get looted, and I'll do a good job for the neighbors as well.

I'm insured. Why do I want to sit in the dark for a week and subject my family to a survival situation when I could be in a Comfort Inn somewhere drinking a cold beer and watching in-room movies?

Depends on Geography, storm strength, squirrel stash, and location of family members.

For me I would stay. But I am not like other people and would never live in a flood plane or in a metropolitan area. If I did I would defiantly have a means of evacuation. A small boat and motor are cheap. I have one but I know I would never need it where I live.

I remember watching a movie once and it took place along the Mississippi river. This old crusty gram-pa dude had a small skiff in his attic. Everyone thought he was a crazy old guy, but he turned out to be the hero and save everyones ass. I would be like the old crusty dude.

depends on the size of the storm.
wind gusts up to 78 right now.

back door is leaking like crazy, I had to peel the carpet back and shop vac-ing up the water every 15 minutes. I need to get a storm door.
gate is going to need repair too.
I wonder about my boat on the rack at the marina.

some of the neighbors houses are missing shingles and some have the siding peeled off.
