I agree 100%...There's no way of knowing where the storm going....

Also....On the hotel decision, if it's a last resort, book the room and don't tell them about your pets - just take (sneak) them in....

Better to have one and not need it than to need one and not have it.

The prefab storm shelters are mostly underground with steps leading down -- into a tiny, claustrophobic mini-room. There is no way I am going to get down those stairs while carrying one or 2 cat carriers or leading (dragging) my afraid of everything 70# rescue coonhound, nevermind getting myself in there. My husband will be carrying the other 2 cat carriers and leading my service dog in. In fact, I have trouble getting into one of them just me alone - and then there's the issue with claustrophobia. So, we are already in contact with a company that builds them above ground out of reinforced steel and concrete.

I will be getting an above ground one when I move to TN full time. It will be placed in my garage on the garage slab.
