    Our better strategy would have been to head north rather than west. I found a hotel that would take pets, and accept cancellations. As you can imagine, rooms were going fast. Once I had secured rooms I checked it out on Trip Advisor. Pretty damn solid one star. I cancelled immediately.

    When I first got to grad school in Monterey California, the navy put us up in a pretty grim place. It’s moniker, tag line, whatever, was “We are the closest hotel to Fort Ord.” Uhmmm. It was worse than it sounds.

    Power out at 5:17 yesterday at our house. Almost all out in New Bern now.

    MIL house is fine, though tomorrow the weather looks iffy.

    Big news: The Cajun Navy has arrived in force in New Bern!

    Indeed.

    "Working through the night on little sleep and lots of Mountain Dew and adrenaline, Taylor Fontenot, the Texas captain of an-all volunteer group known as America’s Cajun Navy, headed right into Hurricane Florence’s wrath. As the storm headed toward land Thursday night into Friday morning, Fontenot and his group say they helped to rescue more than 150 people, including terrified parents, their sleepy toddlers and scores of elderly trapped in attics, as water moved higher and higher inside their homes.

    “Man, last night was insane,” Fontenot said from the riverfront city of New Bern, N.C., where he was working alongside police and firefighters to save people from storm surge and flooding."
