Maddie and Morgan and I drove to Atlanta on Thursday. It was a long day, we were in the car for about 7 hours, along with many Floridians seeking shelter in higher ground.
Matthew has passed the Jacksonville area, the impact not as severe as forecasted.
The storm surge I'm sure flooding the area now. I've not checked on all the details. I'm going to call my neighbors, Jim and Cherly later today to check on them and see how things are in the immediate area where we live.
We appreciate the continued phone calls, emails and texts. For sure we have our hurricane experience checked off. We arrived in Florida Monday and had to evacuate on Thursday. Hopefully we won't have a storm like this anytime in the near future.
