We are in a situation where a hurricane is headed our way. If you had to quickly pack up your important things and get them out of the house what would you do and what would you take?

Thats simple enough...my child,my dog and my purse. Any and everything else can be replaced or I can live without. I know a lot of people say that they want there pictures however for me every picture that I ever took, it is forever sketched in my heart and mind, so I can live without those. I sure as hell can live without anything that I ever purchased. And for the house, forget it! I can buy another in a heartbeat. Any important papers are not stored in my house so thats not a worry. The only things that are need to save are living beings. THE HELL WITH THE REST! LIFE CAN'T BE REPLACED!!!

First and most important would be my son and my husband. Then would be the cat and then our photo albums. We've only got about 5 or 6 of them but they are filled with every memory of our family and memories of the things that we've shared together. Houses, clothes and furniture can all be replaced but the pictures can't. I'd want them more for my son then for myself. I'd like to think that one day his family could look back through them.

In Florida, we get hit often. Where I am at, I almost got a direct hit from Ivan. We got the immediate east wall of the Hurricane, the worst part. We probably should have evacuated, but we never do. If I was to evacuate, it would be difficult. We have five people in the house, so most of the seats would be taken. Then, we have three dogs and a cat, which we would not dare leave behind. With the dogs and cats, we would need their food, and enough bottled water to tide all of us over (which we have enough here, just in case). We would probably need to take important papers. I might take my laptop because I have a bag for it, and it would not take much room. I am not sure if we could even fit anything else.
