I am in touch with several of our Florida poets ... all are making plans to evacuate their areas for safer ground~

PoetDeVine ... you be safe !
Sorry to indoctrinate your first season here in this manner, but those darn storms just have no manners at all~

Keeping all in prayer as we make our own evacuation plans~

Emotionally difficult to leave your homefront under circumstances like this, but survival kicks in and we do what we must do~
All of my family and loved ones have their plans in place, some have left already and most will leave tomorrow~

Will return when we can and will try to log on somewhere along the line, if we can, just to report our safety~

Above all ... be safe ... please be safe~

This has been an especially difficult year for me..leaving my home of 35 years...staying with my daughter and her hubby for 5 months..and NOW, just when I get a job and a place to live, this happens. I really feel like I'll never be settled.

I am praying really hard that this thing passes us by...not sure my emotions can handle a major disaster right now...

(to top it off, the woman across the street and her bedridden mother have NO place to go...the city has a shelter for people with special needs, but she is not sure she wants to leave her house...and she has no plywood for the windows..they are going to hunker down in a hallway...her name is Barbara..please keep HER in your prayers...as well as all those who don't have the ability to get out of town.

Damn, this Francis even got me scared and I live on the other side of the globe.

Don't hang in there if you can get out please. My thoughts are with all of you Floridians (don't know if that's the right word). I'm sending big hugs over and hope all your houses will be there and in one piece when you return.

Sending all my love and moral support,
Titia

Geesh. Best I can find, there are 16,713,149 people residing in the state of Florida. Sharon, I honestly think you should gather them altogether, including your family, and move everyone back to Phoenix. It's just as sunny and a whole lot safer!

(Vicky, if you're reading this, I suggest you leave for work a little earlier tomorrow morning. Might be some traffic jams coming your way. )

Best wishes for everyone!

Good thinking Ron but there are more cases of West Nile Virus in Arizona than any other place..hmm...every place has it's drawbacks.

I talked to my mom one last time tonight before tomorrow's trip and she again suggested I move to Michigan....never thought I'd say this, but it looks mighty tempting to me now.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts...there are a lot of people who will need prayers and much more in the coming days....this is going to be a big one I'm told.

Now if we all got together and BLEW towards the east, would Frances get moved out to sea????

To all of you down there I send prayers to stay safe.  How frightening this all must be for you and your families.  I wanted to stand in line with everyone and just pray you are all going to get through this just fine, and only slightly a little windblown.  Good luck and be careful.

LOL... thanks for the heads-up, Ron...

Hm... maybe I should just leave the state till the traffic clears...

and PdV?... you're right about the West Nile Virus... but it does seem to be tapering off a bit... and yanno?.. they're needing more people to drive the trucks that they use for the night time mosquito fogging... so perhaps if you all showed up with giant pesticide foggers on your vehicles?... we could kill two birds with one stone, so to speak... you'd all be safe from Francis' wrath... and you'd be helping to fight West Nile... all at the same time... LOL

Seriously, though...

All you Floridians, please do stay safe, okay?...

You and your families are all in my thoughts and prayers...

PDV, from what I hear about you, that MIGHT work!!!

You take care up there. We have just gone to warning and all of Miami Beach has been evacuated, along with around 400,000 in Palm Beach. Methinks we're in for a rough ride

I will pray that the Lord will protect you all from harm... so hard for you all, especailly the people that were hit so hard last month.. sigh. Prayers and love are certainly coming.

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

I'm evacuated to Tampa...

The house is 3600 sq. ft., my room has it's own bath (marble shower), the family room has a big screen TV, the enclosed back porch has a pool, a full kitchen for cookouts, a fish pond, a Jacuzzi, a pool table and a dining area. I think I'm in HEAVEN!!!

We are finding it hard to get info on our area as most of the news is about what's heading HERE. We know there is lots of wind but are not sure what's happening...

Our trip here was interesting. We averaged 18 miles an hour on the Turnpike. We could have saved gas and PUSHED the car that fast!

As soon as the storm passes our area, we are heading back. My son is considered essential and I can also do some good by being among the first wave back.

We hope everyone is safe..those that didn't evacuate..and those that will travel home in the next week.

Thank you all for your prayers.

PoetDeVine~
Glad to hear you got outta there~
Here we are beginning to feel the outer bands of the wind with some rain squalls~
Nothing too threatening as of yet ... but caution continues~
The entire town resembles a ghost town with so many taking the saged advice and heading for higher ground~

Our home fortress is where we have decided to hunker down for the duration, with a backup plan at a local shelter, if necessary~

All of my family members have reported in ... and son and daughter-in-law in Tampa are sitting on ready to evacuate that area if the storms crosses the state and enters the Gulf~

Glad you checked in ... stay in touch~

**Titia posted a great link for checking on the other Florida areas**

Don't be in too big a hurry to get back over to your home port ... the ride back could be S L O W E R  than the fleeing~

The power is also now out in the Tampa area where Sharon is, so we were talking on her cel phone, while I was telling her the weather situation down there around her, and at her regular resident home, (amazing this internet isn't it?)  

Sharon said the storm had passed over their home but she was not sure of any damage as yet.  The power had been out over 8 hours where she is from, and that would mean all food and food in stores was ruined, so everyone would be eating canned goods,etc. until that got rectified.

Titia had earlier given us that link to great coverage of Frances, and through that link I found  one close to most of our friends down there that broadcasts live coverage.

I do pray all of you stay safe, and will have no loss to report. I'll hope it doesn't come to you having to leave for a shelter either with your families. God bless and protect you all.

Just a note to tell everyone involved that I am thinking of them and sending my prayers.  My brother just built a home on Marco Island.  I haven't heard if it had any damage or not.  His family is in Ohio right now so that part is good.
