Prepare but Don’t Panic!
Easier said than done for some of us. Living in the cone of concern and uncertainty for many years here in FL has taught us some important life-weather-lessons. More preparation means less damage. Staying calm and thoughts cool & collected helpful. Patience is important! (and avoiding apathy or rash-dash decision making which can endanger.) Some are so quick to react that they don’t think things logically through and impulsively let any fleeting emotion toss them literally here and there. Some flee one “potential” spaghetti prediction of a hurricane path to just get entangled/tossed in the actual pasta sauce. We know of some who fleed Irma here too soon and right in time meet Irma face-to-face someplace else.
