    Well wishes from here! Stay safe. I also hope Hodges will ride it out,
    too. I'm near Annapolis, but a little bit west and I just expect we'll
    have a lot of wind and rain. I have to get my generator ready.

    I expect all of you know the standard drill for preparing for a hurricane
    but I've added just one more detail to our preparations. Make a good pot of
    coffee and pour it in a well-heated Thermos. It will be so welcome if you
    lose power and water. I wish you all safe-keeping. Polly

    "Stay safe" wishes to all on the coast in the path of the storm.

    Having lived through many damaging hurricanes in N.E. in the 50s and 60s:

    Have enough water on hand for cooking and flushing if you are dependent
    on electricity to pump it.

    Be prepared to stuff towels, rags, etc. against the outer doors if they
    aren't tight. Wind-driven water can flow in unexpectedly.

    Flashlights (and extra batteries) are handy of you don't want to go to
    bed with the chickens. You can use candles in a pinch but be careful,
    they can cause fires. (I have had experience with that during the Great
    N.E. Blackout of 1965.)

    If you have a gas grill for cooking, try to have the tank full.

    If they evacuate you, GO if there's any chance of a safe route.

    Stay safe.

    DH thinks that's why all the evacuations so Jim and his cohorts can
    get around more easily, Hahaha.
