Holy shit sticks! We’ve got a Cat 4 hurricane heading right for us (currently 1,200 miles away) with 2 hurricanes behind it heading the same direction.
This is supposed to be the worst storm in 30 years. I live 4 miles from the North Carolina coast and expect this to get ugly, though I am prepared. Since I worked in emergency management in Florida during the busiest hurricane season on record (Katrina/Wilma/Rita) I know what to do.
No mandatory or even volunteer evacuation for my area yet. Kids are out of school until next Monday to be on the safe side. My husband’s work is encouraging people to go home to prepare.
Of course my work hasn’t announced when/if they are closing because they care more about production than their employees. I’m not bitter. Yes, I am. Work had been so stressful lately and tomorrow I’m supposed to go in after a week- long leave to discuss disability accommodations with HR.
We are following the storm very closely and are preparing to leave for northern Georgia to stay with my husband’s cousin, if need be. Road trip! Ha, I’d definitely not look forward to that. They’ve got 8 kids but say they have an extra room for us.
I’ll keep y’all posted.
