We boarded up west of Savannah, GA and headed up to Walden Effect country. A Savannah friend was able to ford flooded roads and drive by, said the house was ok.

I want to go back as I know the fridge and chest freezer must stink with a pool of goo leaking out after two days without power, but emergency management won't let the public back in yet according to the hotline I called and word from locals that did not leave.

Matthew did not make direct land fall but churned it's way up the FL and GA coast slowly. Tybee Island (20 miles east of us) got a few feet of strom surge and lots of wind damage. Hilton Head Island SC got hit bad too.
