Re: Dorian Prep ASK/TELL

Obviously my thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is about to bear the brunt of Dorian. Your safety is far more at risk than mine. That said, though, my two small granddaughters (and their parents) live around the corner from me in Hilton Head, and apparently I am not quite senile enough to lose my status as decision-maker for the "grandparents, parents, grandchildren, golden doodles and cat" parade which is now on standby. Any thoughts for my planning would be gratefully accepted. It is difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff as to the extent of wind and rain we will get (major surge seems unlikely), and I don't want to unnecessarily bail out to the West and deprive someone from FL of accommodations they have a greater need for.

On the other hand, there's a ton of big pines around our houses, and we are supposed to get a bunch of rain unrelated to Dorian before he/she becomes an issue. no water or electric for an extended period, even if we don't get stomped, would not be cool. no pun intended.
