Our neighbor texted me around 1130 Friday night to tell me the power had come back on but we had already gone to our friends' and were pretty drunk by that time so we stayed the night and got home around 230 Saturday afternoon.

As touch and go as our power systems are down here - this is a good year-round tip. If I only had room in the freezer - LOL.

Freeze it solid and then put a quarter on top of it and leave it in your freezer. That way when you come back after you've been evacuated you can tell if your food went completely bad and just refroze or if it stayed Frozen while you were gone. If the quarter has fallen to the bottom of the cup that means all the food defrosted and you should throw it out. But if the quarter is either on the top or in the middle of the cup then your food may still be ok.

Yeah, supposed to start getting bad around 2 am and the worst is expected from 6 am - 2 pm tomorrow with it hopefully moving past us by 8 pm. There is a curfew in effect here from 5 am tomorrow morning until 7 am Saturday morning so far; that may change depending on the extent of the damage.

I have a friend who lost power if SFL a couple hours ago and another who's already lost power in Orlando before it even started raining. I'm scrambling like crazy trying to get caught up and ahead on my work for the week because I can almost guarantee I won't have power to be able to work tomorrow. It just started pouring here so I imagine this is the beginning for us. The worst I've been through here was Charley, which was bad and this is going to be even worse.
  • Matthew may be a Category 4 or 5 hurricane before striking the Florida coast starting Thursday night.
  • This will be the strongest Florida East Coast strike since Hurricane Andrew.
  • Matthew will bring destructive hurricane conditions to eastern Florida, the Georgia coast and coastal South Carolina.
  • Dangerous, life-threatening storm surge and flooding rain are also likely.

Good one  Since we had a new 18-pack of eggs in the fridge, after I made breakfast this morning, I boiled the rest so if we lose power, we can eat the boiled ones and make egg salad and/or deviled eggs with other stuff in the fridge before anything goes bad.
