Glad to hear both of you Texans made it through the storm safely. :smile: Hurricanes and tornados are definitely to be taken seriously.
Back in 1985, a hurricane in the Atlantic was threatening to come right up the Chesapeake Bay. It was in late Sept., two weeks before our daughter (first child) was born. We lived in a mobile home up on a slight knoll not far in from the bay, and had just finished buying brand new baby furniture for her. When the warning was issued, we had to leave it all and go stay with friends for fear the wind would blow the home off the blocks, even though tied down. The home would shake from normal storm wind, so we could easily imagine what a hurricane could do! The storm changed directions at the last minute and went up the east coast instead, doing heavy damage at the ocean resorts. It was pretty scary at the time and we weren't about to take any chances.
