Hurricane season can be a problem for those of us with livestock and pets. The season ends the last day of November . Perhaps this season won't be too bad but if it does generate scores of evacuees we north Florida folks are ready for you and some even for your animals. One shelter that is animal friendly is the Suwannee County Fairgrounds off Interstate 10 in Live Oak. Another place used last year was a highschool in Tallahassee a bit further west also off Interstate 10 that welcomed horse trailers, a nearly full football field of them. Also last year feed was taken in to livestock by volunteers from trail rider organizations when farmers and residents could not negotiate returning to their farms and homes as rapidly as expected. These days Emergency Management publications include advice on what to include in your plan for your pet. It's nice to see that so many truly care for their four footed and feathered friends. So all you potential evacuees and your animals feel free to head north.

They said they ran out of names for storms. What did they do start over?

I agree, because I am what you humans refer to as "livestock". Hurricanes are NO FUN - and I can tell you that standing for 3 days with your udder dangling down in flood water really causes a rash. It just isn't any fun.

People set up shop in violent weather zones to collect the insurance because there is ten times the profit to be had going that route than running the same business in a reasonably weather safe zone.

Chris may turn out to be a hype and run example of what FEMA does best (dodge the bullet), and Bush does best in the middle east, sluff the slo shuffle.

Daisy I was worried that being a cow you might not get the news that the hurricane has been called off. I hope you are a dairy cow as you know what happens to the others . Stay safe and I hope to see you out in the field.

Thanks Clyde, but no worries - we are up to speed. There's a kid in the neighborhood who is kind of a weather nut and he goes on The Weather Channel all the time - so we get posted.

I am indeed dairy - as is my herd - they put us up on the high ground so we can get back to being milked when everything blows over. Which I hope is only a day or so because the pressure really builds up, I'm tellin' ya.
