We used to live right on the beach in Jax, it can get pretty scary . Than we moved to central florida, and ran away from hurricane Frances, right into the eye of it, sitting there for 3 days in a hotel without power. I hand quilted a lot., hope you find a comfortable place to sit this one out. Be save.

I can still remember when I lived in Orlando back in 2004 and we got the outskirts of one of those 3 hurricanes that year. Was out of power for a whole week and it was in August so you well know just how hot it can get with no A/C. As I worked at night I used a battery operated alarm clock, cooked on a propane burner, went down to the office to shower and get ready for work as they had a generator............lucky for me they allowed it. Now I'm in the midwest where we get tornadoes. Don't know whether I'd rather be in an area with hurricanes where you know in advance its coming or with tornadoes where you don't know its going to hit till it does..........most times.

Good luck and hope you fair well thru this one.

Stay safe. I have the weather channel on all the time. It looks like Matthew might be one of those sticky boyfriends that keeps coming back. Some models have it going out in the ocean and turning back on Florida. I hope not.

Praying for all in Matthew's path. We live in Central Florida and are affected. Schools and colleges are closed today and tomorrow and banks are closing early today. UPS may be delayed in delivering packages. Sounds really bad for us. Hope to keep busy by catching up on things at home and work on piecing a quilt. If the power goes out, and they said to expect it to go out, I'll work on hand quilting. Praying Matthew doesn't hit us too bad and praying for peace to take away anxiety and stress for all.

Prayers for safety to all who are in Matthew's path. We live on the Gulf Coast in Texas & know all too well what it means to have to evacuate from a hurricane's deadly path. During Hurricane Ike we were out of electricity for 30 days. I think us & a co-worker were the very last people to get power. DH said...never again & when we were able we bought a home generator that powers all our electricity. We are too old to have to run out every day or so & try to find fuel for the little electric generator that we had & water (we are on a septic system).

Having lived in FL for 50+ years, I've seen my share of hurricanes. Please, if you're in the path of Matthew heed the warnings. If they tell you to evacuate, do it. Material things can be replaced. Lives cannot. Stay safe everyone.
