Lesson I learned is that if youíre going to evacuate, do it really early.

Iím now in same place and could head north earlier, but my parents are too old and canít travel, so we are going to have to stay put. Iíll pull my van as close to the house as possible, but itís old and has no real value to be concerned about.

We are in middle of cone, and landfall prediction was just upgraded to Cat 4. At least itís not too big yet.

Everyone in possible path be careful out there, whether you stay or evacuate.

Add to this, the number of vacationers already there for Labor Day Weekend that will be leaving...campground evacuations (thousands) will be a nightmare. Personally, if you're not pulling out in the next 12 hours, plan on getting stuck in it.
