Long time lurker. I love this site. There is just a wealth of information. We live on S. Merritt Island, too and are considering not evacuating for the first time. We will wait and see what Jeanne is doing in the morning and then decide. We did board up for the first time ever, though (previous owner installed security window film). Plylox made installation easy...we'll see if they work. Plan on installing permanent shutters as soon as I can get someone to return my phone calls.
Our house made it through Frances with no damage...just a few stripped hibiscus and a leaning palm tree.
Several gas stations out of gas here and Home Depot was doing a brisk business, but I don't think it was nearly as crowded like the last couple of times.
