I'd rather be in shit weather wherever I am than to be in fine weather while my family is getting ready for a damn hurricane.
Unfortunately, it looks like my house will take a glancing blow from Matthew- 60-80kt winds best I can guess 48 hours out. Enough that my kid will be putting up the storm shutters- a relatively easy task for an adult in fine weather, though not so much for a gangly 13 year old at the awkward stage.
Well, me being who I am, my house is prepped, minus the shutters, and my wife already lined up help to get the house shuttered in.
I should be down there. Fuck.
