This morning I am thinking and very concerned will all those in Florida who are going too be impacted by Hurricane Irma.

The evacuation of Florida inhabitants is said to be the largest in U.S. history. This is one record we don't need to set.
I'm hoping that this monster hurricane veers off to the ocean or gulf. However, watching the wall to wall news coverage this morning, that doesn't seem to be the path of the storm.
Several years ago, when Hurricane Sandy blew through here, I was very worried. Here in southern Delaware we also live on a peninsula and only have one way out, Route One to the north. I didn't even want to think about being in the midst of that nightmarish traffic jam out. And where would I go? My brother in Pennsylvania who I am estranged from? Yeah, right. I would figure something out.
We decided to ride out the storm. I wasn't sure whether to get my important documents out of the basement for fear of flooding or take them with me, and try to hold on to them through the hurricane winds. Thankfully, Hurricane Sandy took a slight turn and just missed us by fifty miles. Lucky, lucky, lucky.
Here's hoping our country gets through this latest weather threat with minimal damage.
