Constant storm warnings on TV, and it isn't even expected until Monday evening.
The only thing that would worry me is splash/overflow from the bay. I'm about 29 feet above sea level, Maybe 600 feet from the bay. The TV folks are confusing me.
- high tide.
- storm surge.
- rain unable to go into the storm drains because the drains are full of leaves (and washed away Hallowe'en decorations).
Tide - They're saying high tide is 8 feet. Huh? Maybe in constricted areas. Judging by what I have seen on the piers in the bay, I'd say less than 5 feet.
Surge - There's been three different guys talking, all on the same channel. One says 5 to 10 foot surge. Another says 10 to 20. Another said 8 to 12. Who do I believe?
Waves - "Up to 20 foot waves." Wow. That "up to" really covers every possibility, doesn't it?
Rain - I LOVE the way everyone here rakes and blows their leaves into the street. Right over the drains.
So adding the numbers up, I can expect somewhere between 0 and 19 feet of water in my house.
Cool. But I'm staying here.
Note - I did evacuate in August of last year, a hurricane, but that was less for myself and more to convince Daughter and Hercules to go. The Nugget was 4 months old, and I mainly wanted her out.
