This is a first for me. Hurricane preparation freaks me out but apparently it is happening right now. I bought candles, some food and took out cash, I'm packing a bag and heading to M's apartment, which is not in the mandatory evacuation zone (mine is). The idea of packing a bag with your valuables definitely stops and makes you think. I'm hoping the rest of my stuff is still here when I get back, whenever that may be. Fingers crossed that damage is minimal and everyone stays safe.
