Karen, from being in a tiny little minute bit of hurricane weather (in comparison to what ya'll there have been through)......I would like to say that I think I would feel exactly the way you do. I would be undecided and would be thinking about how my fellow human beings would be feeling under the staring eyes of tourists!! I would also want whatever help ANYONE would be willing to give, as long as it didn't hurt someone else.
And, on the other hand, I hate to even think of someone parking out in my front yard and staring at where I live, or google eyeing me while driving real slow down the street. They might get to see one of my fingers staring them in the eye!! My sweet little disposition would go right under the tour bus with the look-seers!!
