Dad wrote me... Ivan is predicted to landfall south of here and move north right through this area. I'm very "sobered," and I think I made a very wise choice. Can't help feeling that God is protecting me even if only from very bad emotional trauma. I'm taking everything that means anything to me and shipping what I can't fly with. Storm surge is the greatest concern for anyone living in this area. We're in the process of putting things on tables in the closets.
