I live just NE of Charlotte, NC and the eye came very close to going over me, but fortunately the storm had lost most of it's fury before it reached here. We had a lot of rain, enough to raise the lake that I live on about 2 vertical feet, and I lost one 75' high 28" diameter pine tree, which was pulled up by the roots. The top of it hit a second pine and it shattered into pieces, which, if they hadn't broken up would likely have damaged my box trailer and two trucks. Fortunately, they were just covered with shattered pieces and pine needles. Today, while I was away, my next door neighbor cut the tree up for me. It will likely take me about 4 pickup truck loads to take it to the dump, but it's not in the way, so I can do this gradually over the next few weeks. Dealing with the uprooted stump will likely require hiring someone with a backhoe and dump truck. I consider myself very lucky, because I had so little damage. I feel really bad for those who lost their homes or lives not that very far from me.
