Quick Update

12 Sep

Eldest Daughter, her daughter and grandchildren have left Charleston and headed inland. They decide it wasn’t worth trying to “see what happens” and then get stuck on the Interstate with two children under five while a million other people are headed the same direction. One of her sisters-in-law lives in Georgia and told her horror stories of people running out of food and gasoline of the highway.

They had planned on heading back to Maryland but I-95 was blocked off. It runs pretty much parallel to the coast, and would be clogged with people evacuating further north. They headed inland and went to the Middle Daughter’s home in Nashville.

It is particularly frustrating because they have outside video surveillance and she can see that there is nothing going on, but she can’t get back and really wouldn’t go anyway. Still watching the deer wander around the yard is frustrating! She had grabbed a duffle bag of necessities but no clothes more than shorts and t-shirts. They are going to a wedding next weekend, but all of her dress clothes are still in Carolina. Not worth the time and money to go back.

Youngest Daughter is in the mountains of Virginia so she’s not too concerned. A bit, because it will rain and the ground is soaked, so there is a danger of trees blowing over in the wind, but when I spoke to her a little while ago she said it was sunny.

We’ll keep you posted.
