My brother lives in Biloxi and I had a hell of a time convincing him to leave for Katrina, he eventually did and it was a good thing. His house WAS about a block from the beach. It does not exist any more, merely a pad there now. Fortunately for him he owned some rental property North of I-10 and was able to move into one of his vacancies. Hurricanes of this potential magnatude are nothing to toy with as we all found out from Charlie last year - property can be replaced, lives can't. I will be heading for the beach side of Jacksonville just so I don't have to sit through the t-storms and possible power interruptions while trying to watch my football this weekend ;-)boombotz said:...for those who stay if it doesn't slow down you might as well put your head between your legs and kiss your ass good-bye.
