I went through a hurricane once and I won't wish it on anyone. What no one tells you is that then you have to live in a world where that's happened, and the media goes home and no one cares anymore.

Do what you need to do and stay safe!

I always liked Milli Vanilli's "Blame it on the rain". ;)

Stay safe, y'all.

So very true - thanks Ps. This is a bad time of year. Next week marks the 7th anniversary of Katrina.

Thanks to Mike et al for the good wishes!

Never been thru a hurricane, but we did have a "wind event" here in SoCal last year with winds upwards of 100mph that knocked out power for days and tore off roofs and knocked down fences and trees in our neighborhood. I was also there for the 9.2 Alaska earthquake in 1964 (showing my age here).

It's always scary. For anyone in harm's way, take cover, and I hope you will be safe.

Jeez it's been that long. The one I went through was Hugo, which made landfall in a city at a similar sea level and a huge impact inland that hurricanes don't usually have. I swear you could feel when the thing hit the Santee and gained strength. But it's the the day after, the months after, or maybe years after. It's not the hurricane itself. It's after the hurricane. And I say that realizing how much went right for us that didn't go right for those in Katrina's path. It's not a good time of year to be without power, let's just say that. :(
