Well here at the NRCC we are preparing for the Hurricane due to the likelyhood of us getting a direct hit or a near miss. I'm the lucky (or unlucky) person that has to stay behind and stay in the lab until it is over. Unfortionatly we are right next to the water and only have a 8 foot seawall protecting us. However I'm sure we will manage.

Wish us luck. :smile:

Good luck Marinebio_guy......................fingers, toes (& everything else) crossed that it dies down a little. Or misses completely.

Very brave of you to stay and protect all the cephs. At least you're not on the sea side of the hurricane.

I've heard of others staying as well - hope this one won't be as big as the 1900 storm.

If you want company and still have power, please continue posting from time to time.

Our thoughts are with you,

Nancy

ditto on that, hope it goes well, hope all the cephs are all right as well, do you have backup generators, or have you tried to evacuate some of the animals?
