Ye should wait until the fires die down. I was talking with a buddy of
mine whom works for TWC. He couldnt give me many details except to tell
me he couldnt give me many details but the detail he did give me was
that this is a test and its going to hit the major metropolitan areas,
Texas, Florida, New York, CA etc before it hots NC, but he couldnt tell
me when/if this will affect NC anytime soon.
