It's the toughest question a Floridian has when facing an approaching hurricane:
Do I stay or do I go? If I go, where do I go? When do I leave? And how do I get there?
I've lived in St. Petersburg, Fla., for 22 years and faced the possibility of at least six hurricanes making landfall in the state. Until Irma, I never seriously considered evacuating. But Irma's massive size and record wind speed, threatened to turn my home — just a block from a picturesque canal — into a wading pool.
