South Eastern Georgia has always been home for me. Luckily for my little town, we are situate right in the corner of Georgia just above Florida. So, it's not very common for us to get a directly hit with Hurricanes. At least not until recently. With that being said, growing up we never took Hurricanes too seriously. As a child we only evacuated for 2 Hurricanes. However, it seems as if the times have changed. Not only did we evacuate this year, but we did last year as well.
Anyway, as I'm sure many of you know, Hurricane Irma had her sights set on Florida and Georgia. She was a huge storm and her path was very unstable. My husband and I decided to make the call last minute and head on out for higher ground. Better safe than sorry, right? We originally booked in West Georgia, later switched to North Carolina and almost even went to Tennessee. Ultimately we decided to take on the 10 hour drive and head to Washington, DC to visit my sister and her family. Which I'm so glad we did! We had such a wonderful time and the weather was absolutely perfect the entire stay. We were able to spend 3 and 1/2 days site seeing/exploring and we already can't wait to go back!
We loved our time in DC. I feel like we did so much within such a short amount of time. It's unfortunate that we had to visit under the circumstances that we did but thankfully we came home to a undamaged house and great memories of a mini vacay.
