Hunkering Down!

Sometimes our plans get interrupted by life, and sometimes it's a weather interruption. Because we live so close to the coast (5 blocks from the beach), we evacuated to our son's home inland a ways.

We did our best to set things in order and get as much off the ground as we could, but how do you prepare for 100+ miles/hour winds and the potential of several feet of storm surge?

I'm writing this while we've got power, so we'll see how our home fares in the next few days as hurricane Matthew spins through our area.
