Frankly, it’s hard to write this. Normally when I sit down the previous night and round up the links to post, I’m happy and try to search for things that will entertain and enthrall. Instead, I write this with a pit in my stomach. Our readers are from all over the world but today I am especially thinking of our North Carolina readers.

I’m not sure where each of you are but I can say this: every one of you will be impacted by this storm. If not you, maybe your friends. Your neighbors. We won’t know the impact of the storm until its over but I can promise you this: we here at Canes Country will provide support in some way. So stay tuned and stay safe. If you can, check in occasionally in the comments to let us know how you’re doing. Wishing you each the best from Charlotte, NC. - Justin
