We'll be leaving soon. The last hurricane we stayed for was Claudette, and when it made landfall it was a CAT1. It was pretty scary, and we were without power for two days. Most people around here lost their fences. A portable building landed on ours. I thought the wind was going to blow the French doors open, even though they were boarded up and we had the couch in front of them.
I just hope my house is still standing (where I left it!) when we come back. And by "we," I mean the kids and me. Hubs has to stay. He was elected (by the Chief, the Fire Chief and the Sheriff, while he WAS OUT OF TOWN!!!) to be the emergency operations commander, so he can't go anywhere. He just got home and said coastal towns will probably begin evacuating tomorrow.
I really hate this.
Please be praying for everyone in this area.
