Katrina

We're fairly lucky this morning, and while we are about 50 miles from the eye right now we still have power. We've lost power several times, and I recieved a call that we are cut off from the mainland as both exit routes (Card Sound Road and the 18 mile stretch of US1) are flooded over. It's expectedly windy/rainy/freaky sounding out, but we can sit on the front porch and enjoy the breeze.
Jake and I were talking this morning about the difference between this year and last year - Charley, Francis, Jeanne and Ivan all reached hurricane strength quite a way from shore with a lot of time to make decisions and make preparations. We didn't leave and wouldn't have, but with both Dennis and Katrina this year it's been a smaller window of opportunity to make preparations.
I'll post more as I'm awake and whatnot.
