I may be wrong on the ancedote….but Greg Fishel’s wife (Greg has been at WRAL since 1981) called him when Fran was hammering or coming in to Raleigh….and said…”Greg, have you stepped outside the studio and looked around…..”. THAT pretty much summed up Fran. We decided to weather Fran in the bonus room rather than the master bedroom as there were more trees on the bedroom side of the house. Had two glasses or more of wine and never were bothered by the sounds. Had enough pines down in the front yard to build Elvis’ Birthplace as a MIL suite….and enough yard trash to compost all the natural areas at the PNC and CF.
Gonna stock up on ehtanol free fuel for the genny and HOPE that all my emergency preparedness gear is for naught.
Also spraying down the shoes and rain pants with Scotch Guard and getting out the LL Bean ducks for Saturday’s game. Don’t think that I have ever sat through a game where a Hurricane was coming through….so will add that to my Unplanned Bucket List items.
REAL FB fans would say….NOON it is …..NOON it will be. I understand BK’s issues. They have to roll out the OTR ND Football rig(s) and the drop dead on them is probably noon, Thursday to ensure they get here and set up at CF. Otherwise, it is a chartered 737 Cargo and all the politicians have them now outfitted with more electronic gizmo’s than Star Trek had…
