Heading for Higher Ground

This might be my last update for a while. I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida and there seem to be every indication that Hurricane Dennis is heading our way.

We stayed put for Hurricane Ivan and it was a hellish of an experience. I do not want my family to go through all that ever again. I've grown smarter and I'm getting out of dodge before hell breaks loose.

I will be in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Hopefully, the weather there will be better than what is foreseen for the Gulf Coast and crossing my fingers that Dennis will not follow us there. 

The roads will be treacherous. There's news of flooding in Atlanta and thunderstorms all the way to South Carolina. We need to get on the road soon because I know there will be a mass exodus out of Florida.

Wish us luck!!!!

Good luck!! Watch out for the crazy drivers! Have you ever considered moving to the upper west coast? Oregon or Washington. We NEVER have to deal with stuff like that.

I hope that your home stays safe if the hurricane hits your town.
And be safe on the trip to SC and back.
