My father and borther are getting ready to hunker down in the garage at my father's place. The house is in Boca Raton east of I-95 (no windows and doors braced). Hopefully they will be okay - decided the traffic was too much to deal with.
When my father bought the house 2 years ago I got him a heavy duty commercial generator - he told me I was wasting my money. The garage is a 3 car and has A/C. They have a lot of food, lounge chairs, a portable TV and radio. They keep telling me "don't worry about it".
I worry about them, and I'm booked on a flight down on Sunday morning - fat chance of that flight leaving on time.
Hopefully this storm will move north and "land" in an area that is not too populated so the danger to people is lessened. My best wishes and thoughts go out to everyone who has family/friends and property in the path of this monster.
