    That's what we have chosen as well. Walk-in closet in the interior of the house. Small, lots of 2x4 walls, door.

    Jersey Girl- she is in a mostly concrete building with 3 floors. She is on 3rd floor. Hallways are just screened in and roof blew off building in Charley. (She wasn't there then) I am worried because of that hallway and she's right next to canal. Also, elevators are not working as of this morning and she can not get down those stairs.

    Spellbound- thank you as well for your prayers. Yes, my mom is totally alone. There are a few neighbors in their own apartments that stayed. She used to live with my brother until he died six years ago. We tried to get her out with flight(she won't fly) or train. She does not drive. She was afraid of shelter because it's a one story school. It's very frustrating and I wish myself or my sisters could have flown down but by time we thought it would hit west coast we couldn't.

    Prayers for everyone.

    Heartsick for you when I read this. Can't imagine your anxiety about your mom. You and she have all our prayers.

    Our parents never want us to 'tell' them what to do. They get up on their high horse right away, as they remind us they changed our diapers, FGS.

    Dealing with that attitude when they are not considering all the angles is so frustrating. Yet, they are adults. We love them but we can't make them.

    So sorry you're dealing with this. You've done everything you could.

    Please keep us posted..

    So glad you are safe even though your evacuation was a harrowing experience. Sincerely, I want to encourage you that there is "life" after a hurricane. In the short run you will likely be displaced, have to hassle with insurance and contractors, and have a lot of sadness and frustration. Just try to remember that life will get back to a new normal eventually and you will be able to put this behind you. I don't say this in a cavalier way at all, I only mean to give you hope. My best to you and all those whose lives have been altered by the path of this storm.

    Checking in from Ocala.

    Still quiet. Completely overcast, light wind. Intermittent rain, 78 degrees.

    Slept well ~ had my meltdown on Friday, got that out of the way LOL.

    I see no birds out. The Anoles and Geckos are out per usual.

    Stay safe, all.

    It is a good morning. Because every person that is able to read our posts today woke up alive, and no doubt they are each grateful. Keep safe.
