As discussed in Members chat thread.... there are RT members who hail from Florida and other East Coast States in the path of Hurricane Mathew.

I have been in touch with "Maltese Mama" (Mal).. who was prepared.. well stocked with supplies.. I hope she can check in, but that may not be possible with power and/or internet outages. Mal is close to the coast in Delray Beach (South of West Palm Beach)... I have not heard anything, but it's possible she in an evacuation zone??

Naturally wishing Mal all the best :give

Hi everyone. All is fine so far. My friend/neighbor asked me to ride out the storm with her 11 and 14 yr old and their elderly babysitter. The 11 yr is scared. I spent the morning packing a bag of clothes, a bag of dog stuff, a bag of food and medication and toiletries and a bag of flashlights, lanterns, batteries and a radio. It took a lot longer than I expected, but I wanted to be prepared.

They have kept me busy since I got here. We still have electricity and are having dinner now.

I am a few miles west of the beach, so am not in an evacuation zone.

The rain just started getting heavy. The sky is gray. The wind isn't bad yet.

:28 Hi Carm. She's a Flight Attendant and couldn't get a flight back here. I love her, her kids and their cat. They are like family.

Things still aren't bad here and we still have power. We have a Fire Station nearby, so I hope we are on the same grid!

It's looking like the Hurricane will hit North of you Mal. :)

So I hope you escape the worst effect.. my thoughts are still with the rest of Florida.... well... most of the rest.... NOT Casey Anthony!! :stamp

Or Angela Corey.... or Bernie de la Rionda... or Benjamin Crump... or NastyJack... or Daryl Parks...or...... I could go on :cool

Mal, so happy to hear that Mathew so far has been nowhere near as bad as predicted and that you are safe and sound.
