    Well, we have evacuated to higher ground and are really hoping that we are gonna be okay where we are now. We live on the MS Gulf Coast and have a Category 5 bearing down on us. Me, DH, DS7 and DD4 packed up some extra clothes and put our memories in a laundry basket (yes, the Disney photo album came with us along with the kids' Baby Books!) We headed North because we really had nowhere else to go. Hopefully we will be far enough away from the Coast that it will not be as bad once it gets here...we are now in the central section of the state. Please remember us in your prayers, along with all the other families on the Coast as this thing passes. It looks like we will need a lot of them before this is over.

    After watching The Weather Channel all afternoon, I am most fearful for anyone who has not evacuated. Prayers and pixie dust are being sent your way :wizard: :wizard: :wizard: :wizard: :wizard:

    Thanks, I think this one just kind of caught everybody off guard. We actually were car shopping yesterday LOL Then we woke up this morning and went into TOTAL panic mode around 6 a.m. Got the windows boarded up and threw some stuff together and hit the road. We stayed for Georges in 98 when DS was only 6 months old and I swore I would never stay through another one. It was only a Cat 2/borderline 3. If it comes in where they say, MS will be in the right front quadrant, which is where all the really nasty stuff is. :sad2:

    What really scares me is that Superdome situation. How scary is that? I guess 100,000 people will all wind up in the Nosebleed section before it is over :confused3

    Anyway, thanks for your prayers...God bless.

    I hope everyone will be okay. I think that no matter where you are in the country, people are thinking of you and have you in their prayers. Hope for the best. The one positive thing that I can say is that it always seems that when things take a turn for the worst, human nature really kicks in and people seem to be there for one another. So, regardless of what happens, remember that people will be there in the end to lend a helping hand, or in this case a helping ear... :wave2:

    Thanks everybody... We have some friends that have never left for a hurricane and they are still staying for this one. I can't imagine having that mindset. No amount of material possessions is worth losing your life over. It was like pulling teeth to get my parents to leave. I just don't understand it :confused3

    We're at MIL's but I knew we should've headed to Disney instead! I sure could go for a round on Test Track right now! :teeth: :teeth: :teeth:

    My best wishes from England at this time. We don't really suffer from this sort of thing, but love your part of the world and the people there.
    I hope that you and your neighbours do not suffer too badly and I am certain that everything will be up and running in no time.

    We are heading to Orlando in exactly 2 weeks and hope that things stay calm, but for now, please take care.

    Best wishes and the very best of luck.
    Russ.

    We are on the Florida coast, so can understand the worry this puts you under. You will be in our prayers. Stay safe.
