Default Off To A Hurricane Shelter Tomorrow

I live in Ocala Fl. and the Sheriff just handed me a mandatory evacuation letter, so shelter here I come. It won't be fun sleeping on the floor, but at least I will be safe. Oh well, another new experience in life!

Hang in there Carol........pretend you're on a really bad cruise ship? (some people say a bad cruise is better than no cruise)
I think I've given up on the forecast for Frances and we're just going to be ready for anything that comes our way in Orlando.

I remember well, arriving into Miami just prior to Hurricane Georges. Taxi dropped us at the Biscayme Bay Marriott, and as I went to check in, we were told there was a mandatory evacuation.
We had our choice of a shelter or a transfer to a Marriott Hotel further inland. Which do you think we chose? <G>

Carol.. too bad you didn't the get the same choice! <G>... but glad to hear you'll be safe.

BTW.. that time George turned the last minute and winds diminished, and if I recall, never did much damage in Florida. Hopefully Frances will do the same

Wish I could loan you my super-duper Camp Rest sleeping pad, Carol! Glad to know you're going somewhere safe.

Thanks all for your kind words. I moved to Fl. from Ca. and all of a sudden the Ca. shakers don't seem so bad! I hope my living room at the beach doesn't have fish swimming in it. A lady who lives at the beach had fish swimming in her living room after a hurricane.

Thanks,
Carol

I hope that Kuki is right, that Frances will fizzle.

Carol:
As long as you are safe, that is all that matters. Hopefully you will be home soon and Frances will have less wallop then originally forecasted.

Take care,
Mike

Hi Carol

How did you get on at the shelter. It will make any cabin on Celebrity seem like the Ritz I expect. if you look under Ivan you will read my posting.

Best wishes from fellow cruiser and Hurrican survivor
