Finn threw up all night long. Since we are in a hotel room this was rather disruptive to all. He said it was the worst start to a birthday ever! He finally settled down about 5:30 am and was able to fall asleep. Then the hotel fire alarm went off an hour later. We evacuated down eight flights of stairs past a running fire man. At the bottom, barefoot, visibly ill Finn said “I guess it could get worse, my presents could burn up.” It turned out to be a false alarm and a very loud and long one but all is well now. The kids are sound asleep but soon I have to wake them up and drive them (nine or ten hours) to NC. We can’t stay another day and risk getting stuck in the hurricane. Pray for traveling mercies for us. It is going to be a very long day.
