OK - so we are in a state of Declared Emergency!!!
It is rather exciting I must say. I understand how people might think, "This is really cool! I am going to stay right here in my house and watch the 300 MPH winds go by because I am invincible!! The rain won't come in MY house. The wind won't take of MY roof!"
However, one must consider the possibility that the electricity might actually go off and you will not be able to watch "Dukes of Hazard" reruns while cars whip around your snug little abode. No electricity means that your beer will get warm in your 'frig and the whole experience will be one great big buzz kill. Bummer. Perhaps you should have gone with the nice National Guard people on their boat when they came by to pick you up. Hindsight is so 20/20.
We in Southern Maryland are not facing 300 MPH winds, only a deluge of an estimated one inch of rain per hour. I am prepared. There is the possibility that we might not have phones and that the cell phones won't work because of the storm system. Do not worry. We will be fine. We will call as soon as we can.
We are not watching Dukes of Hazard.
