The important thing with this hurricane is to use your best judgement and to listen to authorities. We are keeping Flordia and everyone in the path of this destructive hurricane in our thoughts and hoping everyone stays safe. There will probably be a lot of clean up after this is over and we encourage everyone to help any way they can.
Stay safe Florida, we are thinking of you!
