Hurricane Mathew is approaching the East Coast of the United States with a Fury.

From the Atlantic comes a storm called Mathew, moving North-eastward

Traveling over the Red regions that include the west end of the Dominican Republic, across the lower east end of Cuba, upwards toward the Bahamas in a north easterly path and towards the US east coast of Florida and southern Georgia as people are preparing for a hard hitting storm and boarding up windows and preparing for evacuation in South Carolina by around 3 PM on Saturday, October 8, 2016, this upcoming weekend. The highways will be reversed to allow for a quick motor vehicle evacuation in the areas that will be hardest hit by the storm. Getting prepared days in advance is key to a successful evacuation.

Here is a link to NOAA about HURRICANE MATHEW with the latest geographic map of the path of this storm. READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE

Dallas will be getting some rain over the next few days but nothing at all as severe as what South Carolina will get by this Saturday.

We are taking a wait-and-see attitude, since we are inland. I just hope we don't lose power.

Stay safe everyone who lives in that region.

I hope you don't either. We get power outages here in Big D just about 4 times a year and usually it only happens during a storm.

I have a step son and his family living in Georgia. I myself was born in Virginia. But I started off in the Blue Ridge Mountains far from the shoreline.

Which, as you well know, is where I currently am. A Jersey boy in Ole Virginny.
