Thank you for the well wishes and prayers. I've evacuated to the Panhandle. But today businesses here are boarding up and closing early. The storm is so huge and unpredictable that there's no escaping it really.
I haven't been able to open my personal messages here - darn this crappy cell phone - so I apologize to those who PM'd me and didn't get a response. I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness.

So glad that you checked in with us, NMB. This is such a monster storm and I hope and pray all the Borderers living in the area stay safe. Take care, Floridians!

Glad you're safe, NMB! Not sure exactly where on the Panhandle you are, but if you want to get on into Alabama, some decent-sized places are Dothan, Enterprise, Andalusia, and Troy. If they're on your side of the Panhandle, you should be able to find a spot somewhere in one of those places. If you have to go as far north as Troy, I have a good friend and his wife who live there. He's a professor at Troy State. Let me know, and I suspect he can help you out. Prayers for all of you!

Yep, my friend in Naples thinking she was not going to need to evacuate (of course I disagreed told her better to be safe than sorry and leave anyway) has indeed now left. MY other friends in the Gulf panhandle are Air Force and safely secured. Every region of the USA has it's issues but this is truly a nightmare. I am worried about everyone who can be and already is impacted by Irma and now as you say Jose. Power failures aside the potential damage to infrastructure all over the state and elsewhere is a huge concern.

The storm surge in Naples is very dangerous. I hope your friend got to a safe place.

Pippin, I'm near Destin which is about halfway between Apalachicola (the part that juts out southwest of Tallahassee) and the Alabama border. I'm staying here until Tuesday morning then going to head for home, the good Lord willin'.
