The message from my brother I posted yesterday
was one he sent Friday night.

Last night he sent this one:

Ok, dis ding aint goin nowhere.

We will board up tomorree and den git on da rode.
We plan to hed NR, to stay with frends ther.
We be gonna drop R in BR with
K at his apertmnt.

Or get blowd away. Either one, I dunno.
Fishing poles an bikes stay home.
Saws, gloves, hammers and rain gear get to go.
Dis aint gonna be a picnic. No potata salid.
But maybe a lot a hot dogs, for many days.
Love to all.

I guess he didn't think he needed to translate this one.

There are a lot of people in harm's way.

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
