Ernesto bears down on the Carolinas.

Ernesto strengthening as it moves towards North Carolina.
It seems that Tropical Storm Ernesto is trying to regain hurricane status as it makes way towards the North Carolina coast.

The strengthening storm, which could become a category 1 Hurricane, is expected to make landfall near Wilmington NC sometime between midnight and 2 a.m., and then track up the Interstate 95 through Fayetteville and Ralaigh NC as it passes through the state into Virginia.

The storm could produce severe thunderstorms, power outages, heavy flooding, damaging winds of up to 70-75 mph, tornadoes and bring 6-8 inches of rain to the Fayetteville, Ralaigh Durham area.

What a way to begin the four day labor day weekend. The grocery store was a real fun adventure today. Everyone buying bread and milk, it was a mad house. Lucky for me, the beer section wasn't to crowded.

Don't worry folks, I have stocked up on all the essentials too include enough beer to wait out the storm.

Hurricane party at the house tonight....but you will have too bring your own survival kit. Sorry, only have enough for me and I aint sharing.
