I hope everyone in the flooded areas due to Florence is staying safe and out of harm's way.  Looks like it's going to be a long and severe siege of flooding.

My heart is with all whose lives are made more difficult by catastrophic weather!  I hope music can, perhaps, provide a balm to spirits.

Shelter from wind; run from water.  If you are in a place that may experience storm surge or flash flooding, please evacuate to higher ground.

That "keep an ax in the attic" advice is all well and good, but better you shouldn't need to use it!

Here in central Pennsylvania it seems as if we have had constant rain all summer. Much of building activity is curtailed at the moment as I have a smaller stream of water running through my cellar shop. No matter where I try to stand I'm standing in water. It isn't deep, maybe a quarter inch at most, but I don't want to run any power tools while standing in it. My luthier friend's shop is out of commission at the moment as he has three inches of standing water. He pumps it out, but it fills up almost immediately. So far only minor flooding here. It's raining now and probably all day tomorrow. Not sure what's coming after that. Take care everyone and be safe.

I know a lot of dulcimer friends in the SE will be feeling the effects of Hurricane Florence in the upcoming week and longer--and not just the SE, but inland, too with much flooding. The track of this hurricane once it makes landfall, is uncertain with some models showing impacts in states along the Great Lakes and on up into the NE.  Many of these states have just seen flooding from Hurricane Gordon; the ground is saturated.  The Gulf Coast states and Hawaii are facing the same challenges, just with differently named storms.  So heads up, folks, and if you're in a hard hit area and come through OK, you might want to let us know here.
