I am quite concerned tonight for my East Coast fb and Blogger friends. Katrina still still grieves me to think about it.
One word of caution I woudl like to give anyone who is in the potential pathway of the large strorm is to please go to your bank tomorrow and get as much cash as you possibly can.
If Hurricane Irene affects your area with power outages it will be very difficult to get cash...no matter how much money you have in the bank. Banks will be closed and if they are open they will tell you like they did me in Katrina. Sorry...we can only give you $200 because everyone else is also needing cash so they ration it out. Doesn't mattter how much cash you have in the bank they will give you only a few hundred dollars.
Just wanted to leave those few words of caution.
Please know that here in good ole South Mississippi our thoughts and prayers will be with you. Hopefully it won't be as bad as it looks
