"Basically we have 10 employees, that are staying here on staff and it's because all the lower Florida keys, people should evacuate." The employees will be at the house with the estimated 54 cats that live on the grounds. Many of the famed Hemingway cats have six toes and are descendants of a cat once owned by Ernest Hemingway.

I watched the interview this morning.  It was interesting.  Hope it is the right decision.  Time will tell...

According to TMZ (the worst of the worst "news)... all is well.
