Yes, flooding is the major issue, and it has taken out several bridges. One meteorologist estimated that by the time it's done, Flo will have dropped 18 trillion gallons of rain!

Now I'm starting to get concerned about my plants, sitting there unwatered until we can return. Some were in S/H culture, so even if the reservoirs dry out, the pellets will continue releasing water for a while longer, and pretty much everything else was in sphagnum. My biggest concerns are the tolumnias, a pleurothallis, and a Phal. parishii I just got from Andy's, which are mounted.

Such is the price of safety, I guess.

Agreed. Losing a few to dehydration will beat the hell out of losing 1000 to a freeze, which I have dealt with already.
