There was Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Or maybe Floyd was a tropical storm by the time it made landfall in NJ. Either way it caused major flooding, and then Bound Brook, NJ was on fire and flooded at the same time. Scary stuff. I had just moved into my new house a week before and woke up from a nap to find the intersection by my house had turned into a pond. Other than a few inches of water in the basement, my house was fine. But I was a brand-new homeowner and was kinda freaking out watching the water rise.I think the last time NJ got a Hurricaine was Hurricaine Gloria. I think it was about 1986.
I'm of the "better safe than sorry" approach to life. With tornadoes here in Illinois, we've decided to move our girls down to the basement until the season is over. My parents' house was leveled by a tornado, and I've always worried that I wouldn't be able to scoop up all three girls and get them to the basement in time.

Stay safe to everyone and anyone in this storm's path. We're cutting our trip short, partly because of the storm.
It ended up missing us completely! Also, once it hit land, it started to downgrade.
The pigs did wonderful during the trip! On the way there it was a 10hr car ride when it should have only taken 6. On the way back, it took 7 hours.
Dr. Pepper and Baby Guinea are so happy to be home and in their beds! This morning I went to refill their hay and give them their morning food and Baby Guinea decided he was going to sleep in. Dr. Pepper was overly loving this morning and kept wanting to be scratched. He's usually the one that will slowly come up to the cage hesitantly but not this morning. I hope he didn't think I was trying to take him to another home to live forever :'( I always wonder that since I adopted him from a rescue and he had been from home to home. Poor baby.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I hope everyone in Louisiana is safe through the storm.
