So what are my chances of getting into Florida the next 5 days (before/after). My disabled in-laws are down on the gulf coast and are staying because "If we left for every hurricane we would never be home." I have guns and gas but a smaller vehicle. On a regular day it would be a 9 hour trip but with traffic coming out of Florida I am sure it will take longer. My window to get down there is almost closed and I cannot chance it if the storm has already hit land so it may be a retrieval mission after the damage is done. Even if I get there before anything happens I will be stuck there until it is over, which is not optimal for my life expectancy and my wife and son would like to keep me around. Anyone in Florida or has escaped recently?
