    That picture is priceless, they are all looking in the mirror at themselves.

    People do the same thing here in Galveston Texas..and, a lot of times they are out there with their 3 ,4 yr old children..

    oh, and the surfers..


    I call them look loo's...

    because here on Galveston island, well, I'm within spitting distance of it..we know what mother does.

    we dont look and gawk..at the ocean..we button down the hatches..or go further inland to Houston.

    Im #TexasStrong..took partial damage during Harvey but all is well

    I"m 52 young, seen my fair share of hurricanes...

    praying for Florida...

    eta..I spent 4th of July in Miami..love the vibe, Cuban food, music..just the whole scene there...

    bless them...

    I'm sorry to hear too that your triggers you mentioned seem to indicate a very traumatic experience in your childhood too. ( Don't mean to be intrusive. )

    Wanting only to say that the fact that you care about others says a lot about you. Thank you again, Bravo

    Thank you ATOH, for checking in, and updating us. It does help us non-Floridians to have a better understanding of what you are up against.

    It must be horrible to feel as if the escape doors are locked. We ARE praying for you!

    Please, please stay safe!!

    I'm in Ocala. We've been out of gas on and off as we're right on 1-75. I just recently moved back from Boca Raton.

    Crazy thing is that I lived in Houston during Rita right after Katrina. It took over 8 hours to go 1.5 miles out of a flood zone. It was over 100 degrees so pets were dying of heat exhaustion in their cars and being discarded on the side of the road. We avoided a hit or even the dirty side of the storm that time but it was so traumatic that I moved to Atlanta and away from hurricanes. Over 100 people died evacuating from Rita. It was brutal.

    I've lived in Florida on and off since 1994. I went to high school and college here and have been back for 5 years. Ocala is central to the state so we are fairly protected. Our biggest issue is electricity going out.

    The interstate has been steady for days now. I would feel bad if I evacuated because my spot is safe enough. Gas and resources that I'd use are better used on someone more in need.

    I did read this morning that they released food stamp money early so people won't have to wait to the beginning of the month for their cards to recharge.

    Good luck everyone!

    NiN- We have people from Naples staying in our apartment complex. Stay safe!!!

    This is horrifying. So many homes underwater means most people staying will have no means of escape. Hopefully it will not be this bad, as I doubt all of Miami has been able to evacuate. Praying the storms weakens at the last minute or turns away. :praying:

    They're asking everybody in the metro Atlanta area (per just now on WSB radio) to stay off the interstates to let the evacuees come through and get to their destinations.

    Disney is notorious for protecting their property, but keeping their resorts open until it is too late for their employees to evacuate.

    My prayers are with all of you in harm's way. I have friends in Lakeland, Vero Beach, Palm City and Fort Myers as well as my Websleuth family. I used to live in Orlando and Kissimmee as well as a short time in Cocoa Beach. I have been in Maine for almost thirty years, though, but I still hold Florida dear to my heart.

    They are also telling people who are in the campground and treetop villas that they need to be out by 2pm Saturday. So that's even more people on the roads 24 hours before the storm hits. The airports are closing where are these people going to go??
