We’re only 3 blocks west of a mandatory evacuation zone, exempted only because the elevation here is slightly higher than much of coastal florida. I do mean slight, I think the foundation of our concrete house is only ten feet above sea level. By friday evening, as Hurricane Frances approached, our little community was shuttered up, battened down, and the hurricane parties were organizing. Even the tree frogs and land crabs were coming in out of the rain.
