Just as I was wondering how the Northeast earthquake affected Bil (did he feel it wherever he was? How did he react?) we have to worry about Hurricane Irene.
My mother in law's house appears to be in the high risk zone. An 80 plus year old woman and her son with autism are not a good mix with a pending natural disaster.
They are not in a flood zone but this would not be a good thing for them to go through especially
a. if they lose power or
b. a tree falls on their house
Now we have to wonder if we should drive down there and bring them up here. We don't have much room and there would not be motel rooms available here, with the students returning to college. (we already know this from a previous time they were going to visit.)
We have a couple of more days to make this call. The funny thing is, we are on the border of the high risk zone ourselves. We may be moving her out of the frying pan and into the fire.
We just don't know.
