Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

On the Eastern Shore of Maryland tonight. Heading back home tomorrow to batten down the hatches.

Sucks. Sucks. Sucks. We got 4 days of our 7 day Outter Banks vacation. Absolutely hated leaving. On top of that the sucker is gonna end up chasing me home and, with my luck, come right up the Chesapeake Bay, over Baltimore and probably have the eye go right over my house.

Did I say it sucks? Just wanted to be clear.

For those of you in it or around it - Keep safe! Hurricanes are nothing to f*** with.

A buddy of mine was in the Dominican Republic, and was stuck there b/c of the Hurricane...now he flies up to DC only to find that Irene is coming this way. I hope Irene stays at sea.

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

I just went to the grocery store and got my hurricane shopping done so I can avoid the crowds. I'd recommend doing that early as well, you don't want to be the last guy in when all the bread, milk, safety gear, generators, etc. all run out of stock. Be safe and don't underestimate it guys, you never know what will happen. It's like the politicians say (This is the only time I will put stock into what a politician says lol), expect the worst and hope for the best. I hope everybody comes through this okay, I can't remember the last time I expected a hurricane of this magnitude to come through NoVa like this.

Where'd you stay in OBX? I went down for the first time in late June to Nags Head. Good times. Sorry to hear your vacation got blown up, get home safe and be safe during the storm. Latest tracks look not so bad for B-more, but Jersey, NY, Boston are in big trouble if Irene keeps its strength after hitting NC & us.

We were in South Nags Head at mile post 20.5. First time we stayed north of Hatteras Island in a while. We like it up here 'cause it's close to lots of things for the kids. Son was really bummed he didn't get to the NC Aquarium. Cool place.

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

WELL...the good news is it is still a lower level CAT 2. If it stays there that's good. Should not be a killer storm at that level.
If you can, board up the windows.....at least tape.
Basically will make a Hell of a mess....trees down..No power......water depending if your on city or well. If you have a pool, it makes a real nice water resource to flush toilets and it's ok to use as wash water as well.
You can also fill the bath tubs for water to use.
If you have a Gen set, even a small one will keep the fridge and freezer cold a run some fans (Major big deal with no AC).....microwave...toaster oven.
Get your camping stuff out so you can cook
NOW is a great excuse to but a new chainsaw.
Snakes and other critters look for high ground in events like this. watch out
GOOD LUCK.....be safe
AN Don't do any stupid drunken shit during the storm..it'll cost you

Taping your windows won't do anything, otherwise all good advice.

From FEMA:

Before a Hurricane
To prepare for a hurricane, you should take the following measures:
  • Make plans to secure your property. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to board up windows with 5/8” marine plywood, cut to fit and ready to install. Tape does not prevent windows from breaking.
  • Install straps or additional clips to securely fasten your roof to the frame structure. This will reduce roof damage.
  • Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well trimmed.
  • Clear loose and clogged rain gutters and downspouts.
  • Determine how and where to secure your boat.
  • Consider building a safe room.
FEMA: Are You Ready?

The only reason I am all over this recommendation is becasue growing up in RI when ever we got a hurricane or a threat of one my dad insisted on taping the windows. I would tell him it didn't do anything. Do you know what a bitch it is getting the tape off afterwards? It is awful I have the bloody knuckles to prove it.
