It's too late to go anywhere. We are under mandatory evacuation ... and that means 95% of the population stays where it is with a chunk of them heading to the bars for hurricane parties. Our windows are boarded up as usual in these situations but with a new innovation -- we have sliding peep holes so we can see outside and know what's crashing around us instead of guessing in the dark. Oil lamps are filled and ready. Lots of comfort food on hand. Flashlights and crank radios are ready. So ... we wait and we pray. I have a book light and some hand sewing and that's about it. Prayers are very much welcome! See you on the other side!
