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

Taping does not prevent breaking, but well taped windows will hold the shards in place in case of breaking. It's serves a two fold purpose, preserve window integrity for minor breaks and keeps shards together if integrity is lost.

But no, don't tape windows and expect them not to break. For that you need to cover them.

That is the eerie part of hurricanes it is always nice outside right before them. Another weird thing is when the eye passes over it gets all nice out then it goes right back to hell once it passes. I can remember a few from my child hood and the house during the storm literally sound like it was going through a exorcism.

I grew up right on the water in Newport RI (Aquidneck Island) and I can remember during hurricane Bob being huddle in the basement with my family all night/day long. My dad every hour or so venturing upstairs to check the house out, then coming back down and huddling/whispering with my mom as to what was going on and what to do. We real should have evacuated for that one but my dad stood pat when they came around to tell us to leave. I could see the fear in his eyes the whole time knowing he may have made the wrong choice. The ocean was about 200 yards from my deck and at one point the waves were breaking about 20 feet from the deck, at that point we had no where to go it was too dangerous to leave. My dad was just trying to decide if we should go high into the house or low. We stayed low in the basement but if the water got any higher we were head for the attic. We all survived no one got hurt but lots of damage to the house and property. I can remember walking out of the house after it was done to a sunny warm but damp day, relief flood my body.

In short don't fawk with hurricanes and get to a safe place when they hit.

Breaking News from a press conference:

President Barack Obama warned people in the path of Hurricane Irene to take the dangers of the storm seriously and get prepared now.

"If you are in the projected path of this hurricane, you have to take precautions now," Obama said Friday morning. "All indications point to this being a historic hurricane."


FD, you've been warned. You cant blame Obama now for this.

Well the issue upstairs was the window and the chance of windows blowing in. Until it became a water/flooding issue the basement was a safe place.

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
Awww, man. I miss living in Florida. What year was that when the state got hit with like 4 major hurricanes in one season? I think '04 or '05? We had some epic hurricane parties that year. I remember standing on my friend's deck in 60mph sustained wind screaming "that's all you got???" LOL.

But joking aside, it's going to be an epic weekend of weather, and I hope everyone stays safe.

I started to post what I keep on hand (for reference) during H Season (and it ain't over yet)
10 sheets plywood, 1500 sq/ft Tarps, a mile of rope. Food, water and gas for 10 days 25 kw Gen set........then I started to get embarrassed......
Ahhh the joys of living in Fl during Hurricane season.

OH and by the way if you even might get flooded, think about leaving before the traffic or road conditions preclude you from doing so...

I met this dude one time after a Hurricane in Houston walking down the road adjacent to a heavily flooded area. I stopped to see if he was ok and he told me had to spend the night in his attic (he waited to late to leave) as the lower floor had 6 feet of water in and during the night, dozens of snakes had invaded the attic looking for high ground and he had to swim out during the storm about 1/2 mile to where I found him......Yeeeooow!

I live way out here in Michigan but as a sympathetic gesture I am also stocking lots of cold beer.

Your sympathetic gesture is much appreciated. I hope you enjoy that cold beer while we face a horrible storm.

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

We hit the store tonight for some necessities, funny how beer inevitably makes it's way to the cart. Picked up some Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and some Guinness (shopped at Target, so only the standards available).

Saw plenty of other people stocking up on beer too.

Once it hits Morehead City tomorrow, the storm will die down for the most part. It usually does. I'm about 40-50 mins away but we'll see winds probably in 50-70 mph range. (providing it doesn't lose steam)



edit:
Hurricane Tracker - weather.com

Looks like it's slated to be downgraded to a Category 1 right before it hits land tomorrow.

Nice! I picked up a 12 pack and a 20oz bottle and didn't even notice until the cashier pointed it out that I got Kona Brewing Co Longboard (ride the waves) and Heavy Seas. Must have been a Freudian slip type of situation.

I've been a little worried about OC, MD for my parents sake but hopefully its not going to be as bad as expected there. They just got a place (a big ole double wide trailer that I mocked them for until I actually saw it and realized its pretty nice) back in November so my Mom has really been freaking out. But my Dad was down this week getting it prepped and it sounds like they've done just about everything possible so hopefully it all works out well.

Also, my friend is getting married tomorrow evening in the DC area which kind of sucks for her. Today they moved the wedding up from 6pm to 1pm. Better safe than sorry and it should be fun either way. I have to drive there, so actually I guess it works out for me as far as being able to get back home to my beer supply if and when the bad weather really hits.

Good luck everyone!
