Well, after panicking for a few days, the hurricane has come and gone. I think by the time it got to my area it had been down graded to a tropical storm. The whole thing was nerve racking so I am glad it is done with. We had someone come and take some trees down the day before the hurricane (knowing that they wouldn't survive the wind) then we packed some things and went to stay with other family members. Just a little water in our garage is the only thing that affected us. I am just thankful that we are okay and that the storm didn't destroy my things. The picture attached is from the mall in my town. I guess kayaking is the way to go! I hope everyone else is safe.
