Evacuation fun...

Baldacci Declares State Of Emergency


We are under a non-mandatory evacuation as of right now. Because of the girls we have decided to leave in the morning. They are worried about high tide tomorrow morning and tomorrow night because of the astronomical alignment (means really high tides). Public Safety called and gave us the info on the Red Cross Shelter they are setting up, but we have decided with the girls that it would be better for us to pay the money and stay at a hotel.

We'll be there at least Monday night and possibly Tuesday - but we'll play that by ear.

We're in no real danger of having the house itself flood since we're up a small hill and the house is situated up as well, but they are concerned about the river flooding behind us and the beach flooding in front so our neighborhood would be trapped. The houses directly on the beach and lower on the hill will almost certainly flood.

We're not worried, but don't want to take chances with our kids. Our neighbors do have a really big boat trailered next door --- so maybe... nah...

I'll have high speed internet so you'll probably be hearing from me!

Don't worry about us. We'll be fine!
