    alberteinstien: That has to be the most complete and correct statement of the day. Tootles.

    One must contemplate whether the weather provides any instance of stability or indication of other events, such as the Democrat thingy in the State of Mecklenburg County. Such contemplations would provide some interesting evaluation of whether the rip's are on both events... as in rip off.

    Rips currents are ok to swim in if you know what you are doing. They have a predictable pattern that stays the same, but you only have to know how to read them correctly. They never bother me, but I'm a good swimmer.

    I feel your pain there Wolfpack.....happened to me more times than I can count.

    And my comment from 2:34 makes no sense really without the one the WRAL decided to NOT post....smh

    Wolfpack12, you poor baby. How will you ever survive?

    -V-A-V-A-V- So true. I guess if someone doesn't want to know about rip currents, hurricanes, tornadoes, or severe thunderstorms, they can ignore the National Weather Service all they want. Check out a book called Warnings to find out about the lives the NWS saves.

    Of course! I have a dive trip scheduled on saturday. I am going to be furious if it gets cancelled again!

  • -Va- Sep 5, 2:39 p.m.

    We don't need no big gov't weather service telling us when we can swim. It's an afront on our freedoms. The Ryan budget does away with the National Weather Service once and for all.

    -That's the funniest thing I've read all week.

  • Scubagirl Sep 5, 2:34 p.m.

    hmmmmmmmmm, maybe I only HEARD 50 when in reality it was said 15....much better. Sometimes it's good to be wrong :)

  • Scubagirl Sep 5, 2:31 p.m.

    lol @ godness....

    I did hear that waves at Frying Pan tower are predicted to be 50' with the coming storm, but haven't checked that out today.
