We started our week on vacation in Naples. Hurricane Irma has made this week quite eventful for our family to say the least. In order not to risk being home while a category 4-5 hurricane hit (it was expected to make landfall in Miami) we decided to prep our home, pack up and head north. This is no easy feet 29 weeks pregnant with a 15m old 2 dogs and a cat… add to that the immense traffic cause by 6 million people evacuating Florida which is a long state and only has so many ways out.
Our first stop was in Ocala, normally a 5 hour drive took us 7, not bad considering it took my in laws 13. Next we stopped in Atlanta which is normally a 5 hour drive took us 12 hours. We stayed in Atlanta a couple days tracking the storm, but making the best of our time there, visited the aquarium and took a mini (third-trimester friendly) hike in a gorgeous park. Once we realized the storm would likely hit Atlanta and it’s not a place built for tropical storms, we opted to head out. Which brings me to today where I woke up in beautiful Asheville, NC. (Hoping for the best in Atlanta as the storm has yet to hit) where I’m settling in for a few days and can write this bumpdate.
