I'm on a teeny little peninsula in the Chesapeake Bay, but 20ft above sea level. Isobel was a major bitch when it came through here. The power was out for more than a week. I'm really hoping that won't be the case this time. I've got way too much work to get done, and the fireplace will only do so much to heat us up (more like suck all the warmth out of the house). Wishing I had a fireplace insert!
And Ev, God be with you. If it looks like its going to be bad, grab the furkids and go.
