My sister lives in an area along the coast of VA that had mandantory evacuation but she chose not to. Thought she could get out early this morning and head to the mountains to stay with me until time for us to leave for our weeks vacation in Missouri. Now she's stuck waiting for the power surge and high tide that will most likely put a couple feet of flood water in her front yard and the storm hasn't reached them yet. Might not make it to Missouri.

Oh, and thought the following might help any of you dealing with the storm....

"URGENT: As Hurricane Irene prepares to batter the East Coast, federal disaster officials warned that Internet outages could force people to interact with other people for the first time in years. Residents brace themselves for the horror of awkward silences and unwanted eye contact. FEMA advised: “Be prepared. Write down possible topics to talk about in advance. Sports, the weather. Remember, a conversation is basically a series of PWCIP updates strung together."

I'm fine, but there's alot of power outages, downed trees, and flooded streets throughout the state. they had some mandatory evacuations along the eastern shore and the airport shut down yesterday. There were also alot of closings today.

I have power. Big issue in our area is flooding due to flat areas. People are trapped in homes. Worst is over. Currently windy.....
