    We've been staying at Topsail Hill State Park since Monday. Been keeping an eye on the hurricane, of course. Loosely packed up last night, hoping for better news this morn. Ended up getting on the road at 8 am. Park just called and said they have issued a mandatory evac for state parks. Glad we got out when we did. We wanted to neat the rv traffic.
    We saw several people casually walking to the beach with all their gear on our way out. Other RVs were pulling in last night and this morning. Just a heads up for anyone else who has been quietly following this thread.

    Prayers for all who have stayed! We lived through hurricane
    Floyd in NC. No power, no running water etc for 7 days. Whole town was an island. Our thoughts are with you, Florida!

    We decided not to evacuate. It's clearly leaning east. Went to Publix to buy last round of supplies, and they were out of Angel Soft toilet paper. Had to buy an inferior brand. The struggle continues...

    High temp tomorrow of 69 is bizarre. Wind chill might be 50. :D

    This just got posted by the National Hurricane Center. It's fairly peculiar since we really haven't gotten real TS winds yet, and they are predicting an almost 100% chance of getting them through next Saturday.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who were affected by Irma. Glad we were spared this time, but when you live anwhere in Florida there's always a risk of hurricanes.
