G Younger posted a blog entry earlier today, saying his power was already off early this morning (long before landfall) and he were huddled in a pub, which was the only place with internet access, stating he didn't think he'd be able to make his next chapter post.
I told him not to worry, that his safety was of paramount concern, and his readers would rather get more stories in the future than they'd want him to risk his life. A few days loss is no big deal, but the loss of an author and his stories is much BIGGER deal!
I've been there, telling readers my story would be delayed the few times a hurricane knocked out my power from anywhere from a few days to over a week.
That said, if you KNOW a storm is coming early enough, it's a good time to schedule your next week's postings just to buy yourself some piece of mind. That way, you won't be chomping at the bit and can enjoy your hurricane parties (where everyone gathers at the house of the person who has the most secure house, they bring alcohol and food, and everyone has a grand time watching the hurricane unfold around them (in relative safety)).
Of course, that doesn't really apply with so many 500-year storms in the past three years!
