I am praying for everyone in the parth of this storm. Now that the path is changing some, our attention is turned to the west coast and even the Tampa area!
Be safe, be sane, be protected and be blessed! And let us know where and how you are when you get a chance!!!

My husband has an aunt and cousins in Tampa and they have chosen to stay to protect "stuff", many years of "stuff" that is valuable and sentimental.
I have no words...

Hope those on the EAST coast of Florida are safe and well sheltered, too. My brother is in Kendall, just south of Miami. His wife just had knee replacement surgery barely 2 weeks ago. She's got very limited mobility so she could not be in a car for hours or waiting in line to get a place in a shelter.
They are staying in their house which was reinforced to meet hurricane standards for windows, doors and roof several years ago at great cost. I hope it pays off! They have a generator with a switch to take them off the city's electric grid so the generator runs independently, and fuel to run the generator for several days. Plenty of food and supplies, my brother assured me.
Even with the preparation and planning they've done, I am still scared for them both in their 70s and my SIL just only in the mend. Just because the hurricane is trending west, it doesn't mean that Eastern Florida is out of danger.
Pray for everyone. Let's hear from our Florida forum members everywhere.

For some of the elderly, it would be more stressful and dangerous to leave.
So many of the homes in FL are built to prepare for this
What's rough is the aftermath, no power, flooding, more rain
Florida residents are tough and smart, they will do well.
Prayers up for all

Unfortunately, many in my area (Tampa) seem to think it is just a storm. Never seen people so complacent.
The hurricane strength winds are 150 miles wide. The whole state will be affected.

We have friends and relatives in Florida and now since it moved to the west side I am the worrying Aunt and friend up here all concerned for them and everyone else that will be hit with this storm. One of my best friends is in the Tampa, Pinellas Park area and my niece is up in the Panama city area along with our other friends. Nothing we can do up here just sit and hope and pray that they are as well prepared as they tell me they are. I know my niece is really afraid of what might happen.
