  1. OK no video, but some stuff i learned from the Florence storm,. Don't fuck with mother nature, it can and will kill you as it did in NC. WE were very lucky staying in our home in Calabash NC during the storm. The wife and I had our most important stuff at the garage door ready to go 80 miles inland. As we listened . to the forecasts , we were sure that staying was the best option. and Jesus did watch over us as we sat in the eye for almost 40 hours. After that the storm headed south thru Myrtle beach, we got winds as we left the eye but they were tropical storm winds 50-70 mph. if we went to the hotel that we had reserved we would be there for a week or more from inland flooding. and then have to deal with road closers for flooding or trees down. To survive i did something that i would like to pass on as for freezer and frig, . for 5 days prior to the storm we put bottles of water in the freezer. , only 5 or 6 at a time. we ended uo with 70 frozen bottles. Every time the temp went above 44.5 degrees in the fridge, i would add 3 frozen bottles of water, , this went on for 3 days, and never did the temp get above 45 degrees, and the freezer stayed at frozen, and is still cooling everything off today. still have 40 frozen bottles there today. our frige could have lasted a week or more, the freezer maybe 7 days. Way better than bags of ice and less the mess. I can calculate tat 70 frozen bottles can last you 10 days or more, Start a week before and you are good.
  2. back home, street was full of water and fish, 3-4 feet. finally went down, now i can bring Deplorable back home. Home did fine although we were scared shitless when the water rose 2 feet in 3 hours, thats when we left for SC. came back on Friday to see 4 feet. finally got in yesterday with Diane's car. my car will be back latter this afternoon. Alls well that ends well. Sorry to hear about Ron though.
  3. fema just knocked and told us to get out.
  4. Everything was great up to an hour ago. The wife was shopping and came home, and said you got to see this. all the streets are now flooded, when an hour ago they were dry. the rivers are backing up, river and streams in the neighborhood are now flowing backwards. houses that made it thru the storm are now flooded. I'm afraid we are getting the one two punch.
  5. You the Boss Dan, its good to see bigger payouts in the :slower: classes, makes us all want to go for more. . it looks like the best so far this year. THANKS TO ALL.
  6. I Am amazed at the payouts for this race at VMP , I would like to thank all the vendors and supporters. This will be an epic event. All you new folks to racing can get a start here, first time is the hook. . i think there is a class for rookies, always folks to help you take your virgin stock car down the track first time and pop the cherry, ..... then hooked for more, just sayin.
  7. \ om did i just post that .
  8. yup, i said pop the cherry, OK i will never be a supreme court judge, Fuck y'all who agree, but who would want to go thru that bullshit, just sayin..
  9. Room to share VMP at host hotel , thats all. thanks.
  10. yop room to share , for VMP, PM me if interested. thanks
  11. well if that's the real world, post my 1.9, 0 to 60 mph. thanks .
  12. kevin, we can line up and both use the 0-60mph at VMP, should give us an indication.
  13. I wrote a big write up about the usps shitheads. no mail since the 8th of Sept, weather since sunday has been fine. I have been about all over, The USPS shit hole closed for some unknown reason. I used to work for the usps in ct, back in college,. We showed up at work 10 pm till 4 am and the delivers always went out, remember the theme snow rain hail etc, will not stop from my rounds. AND THATS when then did their routes on foot. these lazy fucks have been off for 10 days. Schools, i'm not going to even start , i hope they make them go to august. we had a "frost " last winter and schools , government buildings , and yes the US post office, off for two days. A frost, wtf. no wonder the south is so .... ok not going there. maybe i did. .
  14. Ugh, weather channel has drawn a line right thru out neighborhood on Florence's track for landfall. Been here 11 years and only had a brush or two, rain flooding parts of the plantation, but this one zeros in on NC. We live 6 miles from the Atlantic 3 miles north of the NC SC border. our house is right under the red spinning 1.
  15. Lisa, who is that?
  16. Like i said before, when you spin you win. i got 1.9( impossible for me to go to 60mph in 1.9) at the track when the tires spun. if you don't spin expect 3.0 to 4.5 at the track. you might be getting the burnout 0 - 60 . Tesla does a 2.9(i think thats what i quoted in my text) and no way are we going to be faster than that.
  17. Glad to say everything is all good in Calabash NC, got to take a shower today, got beer/wine, elec, phone, internet, and the home is in one piece. our community had some flooding but only the roads and yards, lots of trees down. No power for 3 days. There is even gas. I had planned to go to a hotel inland 80 miles, glad we didn't(last minute decision) cuz right now the city is flooded and cut off, roads from there are flooded and flooding even more, trees down for 80 miles. Best estimate is 1 to 2 weeks to be able to drive from there back home. We missed most of the destruction as for 48 hours we were in the eye of the storm, by the time it moved from here it was a tropical depression with only 50 to 70 MPH winds. Thank Jesus, no not our gardener, the Lord. Wish he could have helped other folks as well as he did for us.
  18. yes by all means, the parties are worth the drive.
  19. thanks , we decided to stay after knowing flooding 200 + miles inland. we had rooms 70 miles inland but that turned into a severe flood zone area. it will take 2-3 weeks to get back to the home. SO we will be careful . thanks for your concern. CK.
  20. got a plan for "deplorable" my challenger.. if the garage starts flooding i will drive it around the back yard and park it on the elevated green behind the house, magnolia #1. that will gain me 6-8 feet, if that doesn't work well, fucked with the car and the house and time to climb up to the second floor with an axe.
  21. our problem is that to the west , nothing but flood zones for 200 miles, after that toward asheville there are mountains that will cause severe flooding. thought about heading south to Ga SC line, now they are saying its turning south so Ga and SC may get the worst. we are trying our best to hunker down. thanks for y'all best wishes.
  22. Car is in the garage, drove the front up ramps to gain 8 in for the engine. will keep y'all informed if we have elec , which may take a week to get.
  23. Hope she headed south west GA. the flooding is going to go 300 miles inland .. to Asheville. we decided that after the traffic and the fact it may take 7 days to make it back, we were going to ride it out.
  24. have fun!
  25. OMG, thanks guys. y'all are so cool.
