I'm with you, Barbara! After spending 10 days without power after Ivan, I'm not ever willingly sitting out the aftermath of a hurricane again. The only reasons we didn't leave with Dennis are that we couldn't figure out how to transport two dogs, two cats, and the three of us in our small cars and that the forecasts were that Dennis wasn't going to be nearly as bad. It wasn't; we only missed three days of work instead of the three weeks we missed with Ivan. My parents, however, after having three pine trees go through the middle of their family room with Ivan, have headed for the Midwest any time a hurricane has headed our way since then.
