    You obviously haven't been in a doctors office or a hospital lately. And as far as being a dork, look in a mirror.

    Not much left wing twitter in Lafayette. It would be a very bad decision to think they can copy Portland.

    Yep, the twitter I saw was this morning, seems pretty quiet now. Son just moved on over there and he is saying all quiet right now. He expects it will stay that way.

    Thanks bro
    I've been through around 9 in my lifetime, including Katrina. Cat 1s are usually pussies. I didn't even lose power the last time one hit. What kind of damage did yall get? I usually won't even evacuate unless it's a Cat 3 or higher.

    We in New Bern were OK. Where it came ashore at Oak Island, there is drone footage taken along Beach Drive. Looks like all the cars that had been parked under beach front homes were moved across street, turned upside down, and 1/2 buried in sand. Appears tourist renting beachfront homes didn’t want to lose a day of vacation, so they stayed cause it was only a Car 1.

    Insurance is paid up, but if I would have waited a week, I could have just paid a deductible instead of 15k.

    NASA says an asteroid is headed our way day before election
    By Jay Croft and Melissa Alonso, CNN
    Updated 2:59 PM EDT, Sat August 22, 2020
    (CNN)Well, 2020 keeps getting better all the time.

    Amid a pandemic, civil unrest and a divisive US election season, we now have an asteroid zooming toward us.

    On the day before the presidential vote, no less.
    Yep. The celestial object known as 2018VP1 is projected to come close to Earth on November 2, according to the Center for Near Earth Objects Studies at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

    Its diameter is 0.002 km, or about 6.5 feet, according to NASA's data. It was first identified at Palomar Observatory in California in 2018.

    NASA says there are three potential impacts, but "based on 21 observations spanning 12.968 days," the agency has determined the asteroid probably -- phew! -- won't have a deep impact, let alone bring Armageddon.

    The chance of it hitting us is just 0.41%, data show.

    CNN has reached out NASA for any additional or updated information but has not heard back.

    True story, but it's only about the size of a truck. Nowhere near a planet killer if it were to hit, but the timing couldn't be more ironic.
