As of this morning, I am in the path of the storm. I need to get my 24 hour and preevent checklist completed today. Complicating things is that I am working some today and 12 hours tomorrow. The ride home from work tomorrow evening should be interesting.

Your first duty is to yourself. Don’t be a superhero, your family depends on that.

Hoping you’re released after work.

For us, in similar setting, we weren’t allowed to leave the facility (until the event passed). They’d find a hole for us to sleep.

I know I don’t have to say this, but good luck with driving in that sh*t! Is there any way to shelter in place at work until the thing is over? Yeah, that would suck, it’s just a matter of what sucks worse.

Yesterday’s tweaks to the storm put us in tropical storm conditions, with “10 to 20%” chance we’ll get hurricane winds. Since we’ve been through a LOT of tropical storms in the 40 years we’ve been in this house, I don’t expect any surprises. The first hurricane we had, in ’86, I was on a biz trip for work (back when I tended to have one/year – if that). No shutters, no nothing, for a cat 1 storm and my wife rode it out by herself.

Best wishes to you…. hang in there!

Good luck with everything. I’m not exactly sure where you are in Florida, but when I saw the headlines this morning, you were my first thought.

Are you heading out, or are you sheltering in place?

I was doing a 24-hour on call as a chaplain resident in Philly when the blizzard of ’95 hit… Path trains and subway both were shut down. My on call turned into a 48-hour stint. A kindly nurse found me an empty surgical bed to sleep in as all procedures had been cancelled. Strangest experience was helping a convention of Jews trapped in center city to buy kosher meals from the hospital’s stores.
