    today, the News and Observer reported up to 7.5" in some areas of Raleigh and other reports of 16" in various eastern NC towns.

    Sources in Ocracoke say it was the most water in 70-80 years. Vicious storm.

    Traffic lights still out in West Raleigh.
    I suspect a lot of crews had already been staged near the coast and deployed to other states in advance of Mathews. We were 26 days after Hurricane Andrew even with underground power. The U.S. grid is incredibly fragile.

    Tar and Neuse still rising at the rate of three inches per hour. Reporting an estimated 60,000 wells contaminated, 40,000 homes destroyed, and God knows how many swamped, useless cars. Neighborhoods cut off completely, no way in or out, people running low on life's necessities. Horrible situation, just horrible. Can you just imagine the clean up? All that ruined furniture and damaged beyond repair appliances? And people reporting run ins with gators and venomous snakes too.

    Supposed to be in Ocracoke on Sunday, 10/23... Hyde County just announced Ocracoke will remain closed to visitors at least through this weekend.
    The bums lost. My advice is to do what your parents did; get a job, sir. The bums will always lose. Do you hear me, Lebowski?
