Please no

So you're saying if mandatory evacuation is ordered you're staying? That's fine but don't complain when no one comes to help you.
Robert Chambers October 28, 2012 at 02:29 PM
Yup, and will accept all the risks therein.
Mike Reynolds October 28, 2012 at 03:32 PM
Good luck Robert.

No prepared sandbags. Just sand and bags. DIY and bring your own shovel too.
