I’m preparing for the worst, including planning an evacuation if necessary and preparing the house for hunkering down. I have plenty of bottled water and food here and I’m confident of the structural integrity of the house; it made it through Andrew in 1992 and Katrina, Rita, and Wilma in 2005. But Irma is bigger than all of them and I’m not interested in being a hero, just a survivor.
I’ll be updating the weather forecasts as they come in. I know at some point I’m going to lose power and the internet connection, but I’ll do my best to keep you informed. As for blogging, this is going to be what it is all about until the All Clear.
