GB in GA has THAT right!
Hurricane Rita taught me about the ease of "bugging out". Ha. If you want to sit on the highway and let 'em catch you in your car.... stuck....
I would probably stay put. Between me, the hubster, our son, the constable across the street (of course he'd be at work, but work might be our neighborhood...) and a couple of guys nearby, we too have a "neighborhood patrol". Of course if there are 50 of them, and five or six of us, well, that's not great odds.
