    Okay one taken care of - BBS and hubby will evac if they see it is necessary.

    Now for second one - Jeanie please talk to sons. I know you have been fine through hurricanes, however there is always a first time for everything. You just do not need this at this stage of your life.

    :) Andy was here this morning to do my lawn. I mentioned that y'all thought I should go to his place and he said he'd be okay with that if I lose power. He lives in a townhouse with sliding glass doors both upstairs and downstairs but a lot of protective trees and fencing.

    From the local reports they think we will just have a brush by. I hope they are right but they have been wrong many times. I appreciate everyone's concern and I will definitely do whatever it takes to keep me and Lacy safe. Even if I have to go to a motel. Jeanie :)

    May I suggest you make hotel res now? You can cancel with 24 hrs notice and not be charged for many. If you wait, they'll be full. Seems like being with Andy is the best plan. He can look after you. After Jeanne, it wasn't possible to drive for days.

    Latest models do not show a brush by. It comes aground in Miami and then comes up the coast, partly over land.

    All reports I can find suggest that the hurricane will pretty much impact all of Florida. Of course it could be "spent" by the time it decimates Cuba....but then it might strengthen over open water and come roaring in. Yes, I'd be making motel reservations now...you can always cancel later.

    Jeanie, how about assuming they'll be wrong about its being just a brushby this time and just getting yourself to a safer situation, even if it's a motel? I agree with Cat Dancer that you can always cancel later.

    At least you'd have a spot reserved. Others may be signing up at motels with a similar idea if you wait too long.

    Still time Jeanie. I made my res west coast FL this afternoon with no problem. But, all the hotels in WPB would be as vulnerable as your home. I vote for move in with Andy.

    Florida Governor Rick Scott has already declared a state of emergency pre-Irma's arrival:

    Where in Florida would you all be safest? I guess that would be difficult to predict, as hurricanes can change directions. But isn't it generally best to go inland?

    Thinking of you and praying for your safety.

    :) Jim is coming tomorrow and set up the generator. All Andy will have to do is start it and add gas after 12 hours. Hopefully we will keep our electric. I feel safe staying here. If the power does go out I may go to Andy's though. I do not want to go to a hotel as it is hard in a scooter and with a dog. Even a hot house is better than that. I will for sure stay safe. Jeanie :)
