There are families on Staten Island (and other places) who ignored evacuation orders and ended up trapped in their attics and on their rooftops due to rising floodwaters

Are you the type to immediately evacuate or the type to ride out the storm?

I would be the type to evacuate right away....DH would be the type to want to ride it out...so we would probably have to fight about that.....Smile  You??

LOL, we're the opposite.  I don't abandon ship unless I have to, but that said - I am also Captain Safety so if the perceived danger rates likely enough then we'll load up and head out.

I had to evacuate several times as a kid growing up in Tampa due to hurricanes even though our house never sustained any damage.  One of the times when I was about 10 years old.  I was crying because my stepdad let my pet rabbit out of the hutch since we wouldn't be around to give it food or water for however long.  I worried about that darn bunny and the house being flooded for the whole 4 or 5 days we were away, even had trouble sleeping.  When we drove back afterward, the house looked fine and the rabbit was sitting in the driveway waiting for me.  That was a lifetime ago, but I still remember the relief.

When we have to evacuate, the critters come with us.  Luckily my in-laws are crazy animal lovers too so I can get away with it, LOL.
