Over the years I've been on Message boards, for most hurricans, I've asked folks why they don't evacuate, and they usually say the TV hypes the story more than it is. Except for the exceptional ones. But again, I have no knowledge of those things. Most hurrican veterans usually do what I do during a ice storm. Find out when it is going to come, and make sure the house is well stocked with food, necessities. . . . and . . . Booze.
