Dennis the Menace is a-comin'...

Well, looks like we're in for a rough night out here in Southern Mississippi. Weather control says that Mr. Dennis is supposed to hit us somewhere near Meridian so expecting near 70 mph wind gusts around here. Just hopin' nothing gets blown off around here :). Anyway, buckling down now... will keep everyone updated.

Seems like there will be a curfew enforced around Jones county here starting at 10:00 PM. They are asking people to get off the roads as soon as possible and especially after 10 PM tonight. Winds are supposed to get really bad after that time. Considering the hurricane will be around 60-70 miles east of here that's probably safe. It'll be quite bad around Waynesboro and Meridian I presume. Hopefully, folks there have evacuated or atleast found a safe place now. Half of my apartment buildings look deserted. I am wondering if I should have left. Kinda late to leave now and get anywhere though. I don't really know anyone within a 300 mile radius unless I'm willing to risk going down to New Orleans who seem to be safe for now.

In case anyone needs more info regarding shelters here, please visit the Mississippi Emergency Agency's website at http://www.msema.org/
