I am glad I live in Maryland. We rarely get hurricanes, never get tornadoes, and there aren't that many severe storms

That’s exactly what I would do if I was in the middle of a flood.

I kind of see this as a zombie apocalypse because I had this one dream last night of a zombie apocalypse in every other state but one state had power and no zombies in the other state so there would be like guard towers surrounding one state because that's where the zombies would be, and if there were any survivors there it would be a disaster.

I honestly have no clue why a zombie apocalypse has anything to do with a hurricane but yeet.

You should always pack light and always have a survival kit ready to go.

Oh your poor mother...I sure hope she's better after the hurricane. Losing a house isn't fun at all and I know it's tough loose things you built for.

Many blessings from Florida.

Hi if that happens again you can put a towel in front of the door or a sack full of sand it might help to keep the water out. No hate I’m not too sure
