I can't believe this. It's heading right for ME. They predict the eye will be over Oviedo, where I work (about 15 miles away), and were talking about the floods expected in Sanford, where I live. We have to leave again. I can't afford it, but mostly I don't know if I can handle it well. I'll handle it, but how well is another story.I've been trying to fool myself into believing that I have an "oh, well, another storm, didn't get hurt much by the first two" attitude. But I'm not being very convincing. :} I can't bear the thought of loading up the kids and taking off again, that was SO stressful for all of us (even though it was fun once we got there). Yet I still have limbs and debris all over my yard and on my roof. Missiles. Last I heard, it was going to be as powerful as Charley and as big as Frances.

If it wasn't for the animals, I'd just ask to go stay with a friend in a less compromised house (or DH, in his apartment - not such a big deal if an apartment is damaged, you're not responsible for it). But I don't want to risk them being harmed, and I don't want them to have to go through the trauma again (especially with a panicked mom), so I've got to find someplace out of the path to head out.
I know I'm extremely on edge because I SHRIEKED at Madigan today, and scared her. I never do that. And even though I realized what I had done, and felt horrible about it, about an hour later I SHRIEKED at McTavish. Who ignored me. }
This sucks so bad it turns itself inside out.

Wishing you and your critters good luck and calm through the storm.

To reply, unleash the dog
Last prediction has Jeanne moving slightly west of me (instead of right on top of me), and hitting six hours later. So that's good news. Relatively, anyway. Gives me more time to get ready. Or leave.
I'm walking around like a zombie today, unable to decide whether to evacuate or stay. The stress involved in either decision is about equivalent at this point.
My mind is confused, my body is walking around doing things to get ready to ride it out. So for the moment, I'm allowing it to take charge. It did a really good job removing the screen door that's hanging by a hinge, while my mind looked on thinking, "Oh dear, I wouldn't have thought of that." :}
