Jesse M Smith - custodial admin of the FusionZone and the FusionClub at this time - due to the terrible "happenings" around North and South Carolina recently . . . .
I mailed Jesse last night . . . .

Been seeing some horror-vids from your part of the world last few days . . .
Are you OK? . . . . .
Here's his reply:
I am hanging in there Chris, I have been very lucky.
it's not over yet, my son and his family went to hilton Head South Carolina and will be attempting to come home to Wilmington, NC
tomorrow, Tuesday if they can find safe open roads to get here
He only suffered minor damage to the fence in his back yard.
I will need a new roof and some repair to the ceiling and insulation in the attic, but so far we are all alive and well.
I am glad we did not get hit with a Cat 3 or 4 Hurricane as originally expected.
I posted pics on my facebook page which is nothing compared to what a lot of other people have suffered.
Finally got power back on today, gas is very hard to come by do to all the flooded roads and lack of power to service stations.
There is talk about flying in food & other supplies.
It was definitely an eye opener for me reading about things like this happening to other people and actually having it happen
to you is a totally different experience. That tree missed my bedroom by about 8 feet, came down while I was sleeping.
Take Care ... Jesse

Talk about a near miss.
That could really have made a severe mess, not to talk of what might have happened if he'd been asleep in his bed if it had come down on his house.
Does't bear thinking about, does it?

Glad to hear he is alive and well. Does make you think about things in a different light when something like that happens. Suppose that tree had fallen at a slightly different angle!
I remember the biggest storm we had here in the UK back in 1987. I was dispatch riding at the time and trying to stay upright at a set of traffic lights when I looked to my left and saw a large street sign heading straight for me. I pulled away but it caught me on the leg and knocked me off the bike. WTF I was doing out in weather like that I have no idea but, hey I was a lot younger and lot more reckless. You would NOT catch me doing that now!
Of course we rarely get the sort of storms they have in the USA but you would think with such a prevalence for weather like that, they would start building their houses from proper brick instead of timber and plasterboard?

Glad he's Ok. We were evacuated from the coast,(Topsail Island), last week and have been hunkering down at our house in Durham, NC. Plenty of food, water and a small gas generator. I've experienced weather all over the world and have never seen rain like what we experienced here. Wilmington NC is not accessible by land even now. Record flooding is still ongoing. Half of the state of North Carolina is still under a flash flood watch. Very worried about our flood victims.

Wow, glad you're okay Jesse. Here in Florida hurricanes are bad but because we don't have the elevation changes the waterway flooding isn't nearly as dangerous - unless there's a huge storm surge.
