    I guess we have a new one brewing. I should correct myself here and say we have the next one brewing. For the people on the gulf coast I hope all stay safe and have their preparations in order. There are a number of things to take into account when deciding 'Should I stay or should I go?' If you are old enough to recognize the song reference I am probably preaching to the choir. You already have your things in order because you've been there done that. Modern meteorological capabilities are a wonderful thing. They are able to forecast with stunning accuracy where a storm is forming and where it will likely head. My advice to you is don't let the decision to leave be a last minute thing. I know everyone has work, school, family and other things to take into consideration. So consider this...Do you need to go? Is your home built of modern sturdy construction in an area unlikely to flood or suffer tree damage? Do you have the supplies on hand for yourself and family to rough it for a few days? By roughing it I mean cooking, cleaning, and ...yes using the in the great outdoors. This one is not shaping up to be a big one but one can never be certain. You need look at the big picture.
