I’m sitting in Sarasota. All of the barrier islands like Longboat Key and Siesta Key have been evacuated. All the mobile homes, RVs and trailer parks are empty. They estimate that some 300,000 people have been moved out of harm’s way along the SW Florida coast. . . .

I’m in a good place: even with a Cat 5 hurricane (think Floyd or Andrew), my apartment isn’t in an evacuation zone. In fact, about a block away is a hurricane shelter. And since I’m on the second floor, I probably don’t have to worry about flooding. Assuming, of course, that the roof stays on and the windows don’t blow in.

Indeed. Er, nobody stay in a dangerous place just to blog, okay?
