    Yeah. That's going to be rough, no question. Everybody's been scrambling but some, like your wife, are truly in for some grueling days.

    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    Dorian has now grown to a Cat 5 and we're waiting for it to turn north.

    How far west it comes before making that turn will be the main factor in how hard the coast gets hit.

    I'm working outside today to tighten things down. I don't mind a little wind and rain but hoping we don't lose power, even though I have a generator, it's still a PITA when that happens.

    In the meantime sending out thoughts and prayers for those in his path - in particular those in the Bahamas.

    Oh, gosh, I know. The Bahamas are just going to get destroyed! It's supposed to hang over them forever and the wind speeds just continue to increase. This thing is a beast. My heart goes out to everyone getting hit by it.

    Yesterday evening, the eastbound traffic on I-22 was almost exclusively bucket trucks. Heading to staging areas, I presume.

    Barehand 220v included, possibly. I'm sure he will check in at some point. Stay safe, Barehand and thanks for all you do!

    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    We got home this afternoon. I have never been happier to be in New Jersey. It was worth cutting our Disney vacation by one day. Our son has their first day of school on Tuesday and we really didnít want to take a chance when our travel agent told us United was waiving change of flight fees on Thursday, I jumped on it. Itís not like we havenít been to Disney, weíve vacationed there the past 6 years.

    This thing just refuses to move! One mile per hour. Stuck over the the Bahamas for possibly another 8 to 9 hours and they've already had it for about 18 hours.
