We've gone plum hurricrazy down here in Slimbolaland, closely following every turn of the storm, finalizing evacuation plans, and generally preparing to get the hell out of Dodge if the circumstances require it.
I know what you're thinking, though. "That's all well and good, but what happens if all of the adults go into a blind panic and drink themselves stupid? What will happen to the children?" A very reasonable question. Fortunately the good folks at TRAC have anticipated precisely this scenario and made a handy-dandy little kids coloring book giving the wee ones detailed instructions on exactly what to do (with lively illustrations depicting the preparations of the Mit-A-Gators)*.

I feel much more comfortable knowing that Louise and June have it all figured out. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm heading down to the corner bar to "get ready".
Wish us luck.
* And that's good advice about the Granny. I can't tell you how many times we've forgotten her in the past.
