These guys were driving around warning everyone about the coming storm yesterday over the loud speakers, and telling everyone to move to high ground when the storm starts.

A lot of people do not have anywhere to go so will stay at the Church or the School with at least concrete walls.







Poor little Amber my daughter is scared and has her bag all packed and ready to go to the city..

She will be disappointed when she wakes up to hear there are no more boats.

Of course since I have about 48 hours left before the storm hits, I will plan to protect all we can..

We do not have much, but don't want to loose what little we have.

All coconuts will be downed so they do not end up as cannon balls blasting through my roof like the last time...

I know what does and does not need to be moved downstairs to protect it now from experience..

When the power goes out sometime on Saturday.. I will pack up the computer in a plastic sack as it is my job and our income and need to protect it.

But at the end of the day when I have done all I can to pack things away the best I can..

The most important thing is for me to be with my little ones to protect them all..

I will be right beside them to do the best that I can to make sure they are all ok, the same as the last time..

Just sent your xmas thread another $100. You should try and draw out a nice chunk now ahead of the storm so you have cash available.

180mph sustained winds and up to 20' surge is what I am reading now Tim.

You need to get the wife and kids somewhere safe please and I would like it if you went with them.
