THe moisture it wil spread has to come from somewhere. being east of the hurricane is not always the best place. the main pull of the water comes from the east. If he has a the strength to go up ward, water will follow. hopefully he bust's up like an old building being pounded by a wrecking ball. Right now the best guy in town is say it may not have much impact here. these storms can be unpredictable though. it could stall out and keep rain coming all weekend. as soon as we rule that out mother nature will prove us wrong. LoL.
