It's Sunday morning and we are as ready as we could possibly be.
They are predicting a possible 5-8 foot storm surge in our area. We are 18 feet above sea level and in evacuation zone D (A-E). They have called for manditory evacuations for Zones A and B and all mobile homes. We are high enough that I am not anticipating any flooding in out area.
We expect to get about 70 - 90 mph sustained winds with 110 mph gusts. Our house has all impact rated windows rated for 150 mph, all non-impact rated glass (sliding doors, etc) are protected with metal storm shutters.
My F-250 pickup and cap are blocking the entire garage door, the '95 Corvette is being stored indoors at Auto XTC (the owners are good friends of mine), the '68 is stored in my enclosed car trailer which is located in a protected storage area and the '65 is in my garage.
10 gallons of new gas for the generator, plenty of food, plenty of water, plenty of wine and plenty of ammunition
Amazingly, they STILL don't really know where this damn storm will go. It has slowed down, which is allowing more weather systems to come into play which may change it's track, or not. It was suppose to be moving at 17 mph NNW all day yesterday and hit us today, but it has been moving West at 5 mph for the last day and has just started turning Northward. We will probably know more around 5:00 this afternoon.
I have al lot of confidence out house will be fine. Our pool enclosure, another story!
