It will not affect us here in the Triad unless something changes drastically. Chances are extremely high that nothing will. About half the state will be affected to some degree, we’re about two counties away from where the least amount of rainfall is expected. No rain for us although we do need it.
I did check with Holly and as of this afternoon they did not expect to be affected by the storm where they are in Frederick, MD either.
My thoughts and prayers are with those, both animal and human, who are in the path of this nasty storm all along the eastern seaboard.
