So there's this happening right now.
I had plans on completing some blog posts this weekend but then last night we unexpected company show up.
The first wave arrived about 9:00, it was my sister-in-law, her husband, and their three week old baby. They had left on Wednesday from Beulaville, NC for Pound, Virginia but after they got there and stayed one night, they decided to pack up as they weren't too keen on the persons house in the hills and the environment for their baby where they were staying at.
About three hours later, my mother-in-law and two of my wife's brothers showed up somewhat unexpectedly. They were attempting to take shelter down in Jacksonville, NC with my wife's dad as he's a county employee as is thus classified as a first responder as has to stay, but the shelter was full. So they dropped him off, packed the car up, and arrived in Ohio. We weren't sure if they were coming as they have no cell phones between the three of them. It was either Ohio, find a shelter in Raleigh, or ride out the storm back at their house in Richlands, NC. Luckily they chose Ohio.
So we're housing refugees from the storm for the weekend. Besides my wife and I, there are now five other grown adults in the house, plus a three week old. We offered the main bedroom to my sister-in-law and her husband since they have the baby. We had people sleeping in the floor and on the couch last night.
The worst of the storm is supposed to pass by Sunday morning and we're keeping in constant contact with my wife's dad down there on how things are going. The shelter he was housed had a car smash into it earlier today. Everyone is fine and they're being moved to another building.
So anyway, that's my tale right now. I'll be back to regular blogging here soon, probably next week, as I have packages from Dimebox Nick and Jenny Miller on Twitter that have yet to be chronicled, plus I'm nearly complete on my Toronto Blue Jays entry in my "Around the Horn" series.
