Default Any of yall around North Carolina?

I am rolling into this lovely part of the world to deal with Florence and would rather buy a 2k ranger over wasting cash on a rental. I am talking to a few people on vehicles but wanted to see if the old board had anything.

I've got a cousin and his family in Charleston. They've headed inland to stay with a family friend, with the exception of his wife, who's staying to work at the Hospital.

Ya'll be safe out there...looks like it's gonna be pretty bad. I have family just west of Charlotte and also Myrtle Beach and they've decided to stay...not too concerned about Charlotte but a bit more worried about Myrtle Beach.

They have delayed us again. Now it looks like Monday before we head out there. Check on your people in MB, reports say it is torn up. Not sure on Jacksonville yet.

My parents basement had about 4" of water in it. They have one of the few basements in Jacksonville NC, because the water table is high.

About a year ago I flipped to CAT Adjuster and I honestly think I will never work in a collision shop again. It is a great feeling cutting someone a check in one of the worst situations of their life and giving them a step up back to a normal life.


The flooding wasn't too bad, there was actually more inland than on the coast. I am still sitting in Greensboro waiting on my PCM to to be finished.

It is way better when you are working, about 3500ish a week but it all depends on, mother nature, your licensing, and hustle. I am freelance for 3 companies but you can go work for an A list Ins company and make about 70 a year with low hours, a company car and staying local. My current preference is Storm chasing because its a rush and new everyday.
