I hope all in harm's way in Florida and So. Georgia will check in here.  I am in No. Florida and hunkering down to ride out the storm, right now the forecast is the storm should have downgraded to a level 2 when it hits early Monday am.  We were affected a year ago with hurricane Matthew, and it uprooted 4 of my granddaddy oaks, what a mess to clean up, otherwise all was okay.

In 2004 we suffered a lot with hurricane Charlie with so much debris, fence damage, but all safe.

In 1999 hurricane Floyd was pretty bad as well, I ran out of stalls for the horses and brought 2 of them into my house.  I am adding 2 photos (if it works!)  : my little stallion SG TNT lived in my kitchen for 2 days and my weanling Irish Lullaby was in the foyer. Put down tarps, shavings, blocked off doorways. They were well behaved, especially TNT, who was always ready for an adventure, curious and level headed.  Miss that guy!

They look comfy in their temporary home.
I hope that you stay safe and that the hurricane weakens even more.

I just saw a video on my FB of a family that lives in a concert made house. They decided to stay through Irma. They brought their 9 dogs and two riding horses into the house. The horses just followed them in like they do it all the time.

I just saw a video of a couple with 8 horses in their living room--concrete block house, they removed the furniture and put up stalls. There were one or 2 minis and 6 big horses, 1 was a wild mustang a year ago.

Cayuse, thank you. Right now we are in the bands of wind and rain fronting the storm. So much water. Had stalls this year for all.  The worst is predicted for 2 am, oh it is so nerve wracking for that to be in the dark, not knowing til morn what has come down!  Will not sleep, my barn surveillance is not working right now so I cannot keep watch on the guys. So far so good, keeping the faith.  I pray all in its path will be safe and not lose power.     We did have fun that year with the minis in the house, they loved all the attention.
