I have some very dear friends who were in New Orleans when Katrina hit, and I am native to South Florida, so I know the power of these storms. I hope that when the word comes that a mandatory evacuation has been called you will take heed! My thoughts and prayers are with all the residents of the area in the path of the storm and hope that you will take this opportunity to get yourself and your loved ones out of harms way.
Wherever you are today, I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and sound.
