I'm driving to NC, and I am wondering what is it going to be like for the drive back.

I also am leaving a ton of animals. I have people on my farm hunkered down in supposedly up to code buildings, and the barns are up to code, but out in Indiantown, it's not so much the wind we worry about, but the flooding, thanks to Lake O being right there.

But, I am driving, so I can travel at my leisure. See if you can rent a car in Houston, if not, then stay. My understanding is that the airlines are waving fees due to the hurricane, so you shouldn't lose money on the plane tickets.
What provisions are you making for the animals?

You will get your wish. Timing is everything and like i said from the get go i would get nothing from this storm. The more the forward speed slows the more time to buy in allowing the high to move back to the east and not effect FL at all.

Two takeaways. One from this morning, one from last night. This morning they spoke in great detail about how the storm was building and what it might do but then admitted they had no idea what it was going to do given the factors of the conditions its being influenced. Just say " We have no idea what its going to do or how bad it will be."
Then last night was particularly annoying. The two dweebs discussing the storm said they couldn't remember when a storm was moving this slow and could dump this much rain. Guys, Houston was, what two years ago? Last year, even? North Carolina was maybe two years ago. New Orleans earlier this year had a deluge. I don't follow these storms as an obsession like some do with The Weather Channel. But they're a broken record with the attention spans of gnats.
But the worst was their comments about the rain and floods. They suggested EVERYBODY be forced to buy flood insurance so as to increase the pool of money to pay for the damages. I have ZERO chance of being flooded out and I wouldn't pay a dime for flood insurance to help bail out multi millionaires who own coastal property or a second home along a bay or river. There should be a once and done clause for flooding. You get flooded out once, you get paid. You get flooded out twice, you either rebuild on your own or you have the property converted to green space on a flood plain. Or you continue to pay whatever rates the insurance companies see fit to charge you.
They would never force me to buy it and i am right on the gulf , but i paid cash for my house and never had any Ins. They never forced me to buy Health care Ins also. I never paid any fine.
