I have a couple drivers that are not going to make it home this weekend. Who else is staying out? Panther just sent out a fleet message for some trucks to stay available. Does anything really move during a holiday weekend?
GUSTAV has changed all that. We're pre-prepping the property
for a evacuation if needed. Not much we can do that we haven't
done before, board the houses up and pick up floatable stuff.
My Son and Nephew will take the trucks north stuffed with valuables that the Wives deem valuable. Only so much stuff you can cram in 24'. Wives and the kids will follow the boys in their cars.
My father , brother and I will take our boats either east or west.
As of yet, no indication of exact travel path. We'll travel with a
flotilla of boats out of Morgan City [as usual] The 8th or 9th time we've fled like a bunch of Cubans.
If that's not labor, I don't know what is!
Hope y'all come out in the sunshine, on the far side.
PS My elder daughter just bought a home in Deland, and is seriously wondering whether Fla was a good choice.....
