Gripping for Hurricane Matthew!

Last Update: October 06, 2016

Hey WA family!!! So I have been living in South Florida since 2008! My family and I are about to experience our very first hurricane! Its a bit scary to think this storm is coming with very high winds. Luckily for us we live in a high rise building and our deck's shutters are completely locked. We are just sitting here watching the news grabbing candles, lanterns, ice cooler, flashlights, etc. Schools are closed, businesses are closed. Pray for those on hurricane Matthew's path. Its a category 4 storm.

Let mother nature have mercy on us!!!!

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!!! XO

Sincerely,

Yamaris

So are we here in South Carolina. Everything is closed already and we have been ordered to evacuate the area for the next 72 hrs. It is a mandatory 100 mile coastal town area evacuation. We live 21 miles from the coast. All hotels and motels in the state are full as we are bunkered down in our one story brick home. We are well prepared for it to hit us as it is currently expected to be close to a direct shot as there is to landfall in South Carolina later this week. Stores are out of everything now here so I can only imagine how it is for you there. Hang in there and keep us posted! I am going to blog on it shortly once I get home from the sandbagging location I am at now.

Hey Mike,
wow that's crazy!!!! You guys got it worst up there for sure!!!! So far, I haven't found the weather too crazy. Strong winds for sure, but i'm not sure if we've gotten the worst of it yet.... Hope things work out for you!!! Good luck with everything!! :)

I ended up putting the blog on my site stressfreesolutions,org on the page Before the storm- Facing a Natural Disaster.. I had some imaging issues and I could not get any of the images to upload. It took me all afternoon working on the permissions that I almost didn't do a blog at all so I skipped the images and wrote the blog there so I had something to engage an audience with. check it out if you like. It is only a fraction of the stress factors involved so far.

My prayers are with you. My advise, stay away from the windows, even with the shutters. Stay safe.

Wishing you the best on this Yamaris. I'm further up the coast in Maryland but will be going to a conference in Delray beach on the 17th. Hopefully it's going to skirt and miss us all and turn out to sea,
