I live on Florida East Coast. The thing about these category 4 ‘canes is, after the wind growls, and after the it rains cats, dogs, and dirty underwear, power is out. And, as with Irma last year for me, eight days without power. You can’t just hunker down. Go inland.
Yep, the power outages suck. I was out for two weeks for...hell, I can’t remember which one, and then two weeks after Katrina. Getting gas was a nightmare. I had just bought a quarter of cow before Katrina. Keeping the freezer going was a top priority.
