Watching the weather is important
#1
The video to a tragic event that occurred yesterday afternoon/evening.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1dg-E0sW04

The sad part, there were watches out, so they knew the potential for storms to blow up was there. You have to be mindful, that mother nature has to be respected. 

11 people lost their lives so far, I believe some are still missing. Thankfully, due to the efforts of the crew where the video was shot from and the efforts of other boaters that had been asked to respond to the area to help, multiple people were rescued. 

Yes, the duck operator/company will have to answer for their actions, but that doesn't bring the dead back. You are the only one that is going to watch out for your safety 100% of the time. It is easy to get caught up in the moment while on vacation or out enjoying the afternoon, but we have to stay vigilant to insure our safety and the safety of our loved ones.

If you look like food,you will be eaten.


I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

NC and SC coastline get to test their prepping or bugout skills this week. I have a buddy that lives in Myrtle Beach that loaded up his RV and pickup truck and he is now camped in the driveway of my mountain home.

I have not heard a ton of tragedy about this one. I mean, yeah, there is obviously a lot of water and some deaths, but I think because of last years' Florida event a lot of people got out of dodge/got ready.

I think the last count I seen was 24 deaths. I believe, like Bob, that many listened to the warnings and got out of the way. I have seen one report of 'victims shopping' (looting). They report said now that the storm is moving out the looters are starting to come out.

I always wanted to join the National Guard growing up...I thought being given the command to shoot all looters would be cool.


Now that I' m older I realize that
a) The National Guard really does not guard the nation
b) They don't shoot looters
and
c) Shooting people who may just be desperate survivors is not cool
