Lynn- absolutely.,. make your preparations now!!! And many left Florida for Georgia, so much more road traffic in your area.

Actually some people we met at lunch today were part of that road traffic! They explained that they had been driving for 14 hours - 4 year-old and 9 month-old along with them. They came back to our house to rest a bit and then we invited them to have dinner and sleep over. We had a wonderful dinner with them!
Once they decided to leave Orlando, the first hotel they could reserve was all the way to Nashville! They plan to leave in the morning and go the rest of the way.  All the best - Lynn

Hi Lynn

Thinking of you and all in the path of this devastating storm. This is terrific information for appropriate preparation - hopefully many will see this who are not yet prepared.
