Hoping for the Best

Late last night I finished my preparations for sheltering in place. After a few hours of restless sleep, I awoke this morning to a different scenario – mandatory evacuation was imminent. So, I followed the old axiom; Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.

I secured my outdoor furnishings and decor, covered my windows, loaded up my important belongings, and by noon I was on the road. My Plan B was to stay with friends in central Florida, Plan C was friends in Georgia, Plan D was friends in North Carolina, Plan E was friends in Virginia.

The weather update around 2pm tossed all those options out the window as the hurricane was predicted to track north through the South. I have stopped for the night in Charlotte, NC. Well on my way to Plan F, my cousin’s in Ohio.

Thank you to everyone who reached out to check on me, sorry I haven’t able to respond. It’s been a hectic day! The next few days should be interesting. I hope the storm does minimal damage throughout its path!
