I hope you are all prepared for the storm coming, in all seriousness please have your hurricane kits ready and move all things movable away from your windows, latch things down. I hope that things won't be too bad, but we all must prepare for the worst. I hope that all of you in blogland stay safe and nothing gets damaged. Remember to fill up gas everyone!
I'm currently home today w/ the flu but I need to get things ready around my house too. I hope this storm isn't too bad as my family and I fly out on Wednesday evening- yikes.
