Yes, we're in the hurricane watch zone for Matthew; the current track has the eye sliding past us just off the coast, but with a Storm Of Unusual Size, we'll still get plenty of weather where we are, a few miles inland. We're not in a flood zone, but we're expecting EPIC rain tomorrow and Friday, and stormy winds of great storminess. I've been told to expect that the power will go out, and to hope it won't be out for more than a day.
We have hurricane supplies, including lots of water; the house is stoutly built, and we just got shiny new storm windows and doors installed in February. These are windows of great windowfullness, let me tell you! We did NOT have to bolt sheets of steel to the outside of the house this year, which is an exercise that I do not miss.
As soon as the storm is past and we have power and internets again, I will post again here and on Facebook, so you'll all know I'm okay. Wish us luck and fair (or at least reasonably just) winds!
