So I'm Under a Hurricane Warning Right Now...

By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy

I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm shutting down this afternoon in anticipation of Hurricane Matthew. How strong the storm gets before it hits the coast of Florida, and how close to the coast it wiggles (we won't really know until it happens, but it's an expected category 4, which is bad), will determine how soon I'll be back online. We will very likely lose power, but I don't know for how long. I'm in the middle of the state, so it shouldn't be too bad (expected 80mph winds), but we could get as high at 130mph winds if the storm shifts west at all.

I've scheduled the posts that are already in house, so you should have fun things to read, but I won't be available to answer comments, questions, or emails.

So if you don't see me for a while, don't worry, I'm just offline and unable to access the site. If possible, I'll let everyone we're safe on the Fiction University Facebook Page.

My fellow Floridians and Southeast Coasters also in the path of this storm...stay safe, stay dry.
