60% of my county is now under a mandatory evacuation because of Hurricane Matthew. 

My mother has been fighting my, and my four siblings, recommendation that we get the fuck out of Dodge. I called her at 6:20 am and told her I was leaving with or   without her, so she agreed.

Her two big dogs and I have been sitting in my car for over an hour now because she refused to reschedule a mammogram for 10:30am that I told her yesterday to reschedule.  It's at a hospital so they never close.

When I've told you in the past my mother is controlling,  I wasn't kidding. My blood pressure is going through the roof.

Oh geez, as if evacuating wasn't stressful enough! Between your mom and the dogs you must be ready to hit the roof!

Stay safe, try to stay comfortable as possible and here's hoping the storm is not nearly as bad as they're projecting.

*snugs* May this pass and quickly!

I'm so sorry. That sounds very stressful. I hope your mother sees some sense and I pray that the hurricane will not hit you too hard.

You're doing the right thing--even if she isn't. As a former FL resident, I understand the complacency of the people there, the "oh the TV people always exaggerate the danger" attitude. (My daughter actually said that to me today via IM-she still lives there).
But a Cat 4 storm is nothing to take lightly. And I'm glad you're sensible even if your mom is making things difficult. I hope you found somewhere safe and are currently hunkered down. (My daughter and her SO finally saw sense and boarded up their home.)
I'm keeping vigil here in TN via the Weather Channel. Please update when you can.

*hugs* Stay safe. And try and resist the temptation to leave her in a deep swampy ditch.
