Who doesn't think of Fred Flinstone yelling for the wifey when Hurricane Wilma is mentioned?

We're within the maybe-possibly range for Wilma, but at this point most predictions indicate Wilma will be significantly south of us. This has spurred us to finish cleaning the garage and making sure our sentimental items are in plastic bins. Our home is on high ground (well, high by Florida standards. . .) The most damage I'm concerned about is the wind whipping out the lanai screens--happened during a couple of storms in the spring.

So, we're staying put for now. If my ILs evacuate, we'll go with them. (And I probably won't be able to post if we do. . . Hmmmm. . . Dad and Mom--I'll call B in Az--your phone wasn't working earlier today. . . )

Hubby's working tonight, but the boys are off school tomorrow. Right now I'm planning for a holiday. *grin*

So it wasn't just me thinking of Fred and Pebbles? Perhaps Bam Bam would be a good name for a hurricane.

We're watching Wilma with considerable interest - especially since we have relatives in most of Florida (Tampa, Orlando, Miami, and upwards along the east coast). Glad you're not in the direct path!

I hadn't until you mentioned it, but then I grew up without a television ... :)

Hope your screens remained intact.

Thanks, y'all. . . We weathered the storm fine. It was pretty gentle, as far as tropical storms go, in our neighborhood. The kids had school off, though--so we made it into a holiday. *Grin*
