Guys, it's pathetic how scared I'm getting for this storm. I'm way inland and it probably won't affect me more than a little rain, but just look at this picture:
My home is definitely within the 2 area, and I know this is all projected, but man is it scary. To be safe, we've made ourselves an emergency kit if we get stuck at home, but I will certainly be evacuating if it's suggested. The parish next to us has already gotten the suggestion, but it's not mandatory like the New Orleans parishes already are. The thing that scares me the most is that if this thing hits, my boyfriend and his family will be out working in the storm getting people's water back on. They sure do work hard for their money!
Please, please, please be praying for my family and loved ones, and just the entire gulf coast right now. We could certainly use it!
