We Can't Leave!!!!

Thank you so much for all of the well wishes, prayers, and finger crossing. I really really appreciate it. I think we may need them now more than ever. It appears that we waited too long to evacuate and the roads are like parking lots. There is only one way out of this state and thousands are trying to leave. The authorities are saying it will take 3 to 4 times longer to reach any destination. If we left now, we could be stuck on the road when the storm hits. I would rather take my chances inside my house. Fortunately, we aren't in the mandatory evacuation zones. Unfortunately, we are still in the path of the hurricane. My greatest fear are the tornados that the hurricane spawns. I won't be sleeping Saturday night I can tell you that much for sure. Hopefully, I won't be too nervous to knit.  I'll keep everyone posted as long as we have power! Thanks again so very much! You guys rock!!
