I live right where the black line first touches Florida. Had to bring in ALL of the crap off the yard, furniture, decorations, etc. My Brother-in-law is out of town so I get to put up his storm shutters (even though a cat 1 they are really not necessary) I am not putting them up in my house - windows rated at 120 MPH and I live far from and debris. The biggest part that will suck is when the power goes off. Imagine 100% humidity and 85F outside. THIS IS SOOOO GOING TO SUCK! The roads will flood, and there is noplace to go anyway. I'll post so long as I have power + DSL if anyone is interested. I don't expect the storm to be much more than alot of wind and rain. For now I have more preparations to make.
