Yes, I just love hurricane hysteria around here.
Everyone rushing out to get as much bottled water as they can, like dehydration is the leading cause of death during and after a hurricane. :roll eyes: Guess they forget they still have running tap water at the house before the storm, just saying.... We have a Culligan service and I typically have six 5 gal bottles of water on hand on any given day.

Fuel is another one, they run out as soon as a hurricane is mentioned and fill up their cars, guess they don't plan on doing any driving til after the storm, or they will need to fill up again, as it finally approaches.

Evacuation is another one of my fav's. They wait until the last minute, THEN decide to hit the road (along with everyone else), which creates a traffic jam like no other, so now you can ride out the storm on the roadway, out of fuel, out of food, no bathroom, in your car....and when it's over (assuming you survived), you have to figure out how you are going to get home, since your car is out of gas in the middle of God knows where.

I stock up on meats and freeze them all. I have 2 portable generators and use on to keep my fridge alive after a hurricane. Got plenty of propane so cooking is taken care of. We lost running water for 4 days and power for 12 days after Irma. Sure it was incredibly hot but it was also like camping in your own house with an insane mess to clean up after the yard was no longer flooded.

Well how bout the Darwin awards. My mom with 2 college degrees loved to send me newspaper clippings of folks who had 'bad luck' like that. So far the storm is not turning. Right now its stationary just sitting there, grinding up the Bahamas. Our local weatherman keeps bringing that up. He is getting a little excited. Watch dozens of the worlds biggest super computers blow it. It comes inland I may fire up the bus and head south. Storms in the northern hemisphere almost never go into retrograde. Move backwards or south. Still their is like only a 1% chance of it doing it.

Dana,i had a 30kw trailer mounted generator that could run the house and the shop,one hurricane we lost power but thats about all.
I had the big genny parked by the house,ac running,working in the shop,ac running,everything was good.
But my MiL from daytona lost her roof and she wanted to come stay with us,her boyfriend and daughter too.
all smokers and drinkers.
Of course we said "sure,come on over".
Under our breath we said "****!".
Before they could get to our place we shut down the genny,and pulled it behind the shop,out of sight.


The family from **** arrived and were appalled!
You don't have a big genny?
Nope,its hot ain't it!


They stayed a few hours and left,heading for a motel somewhere down the road.
So,i pulled the genny back out and fired it up!


Carol just smiled!
Those bums would have been there for weeks,AC and food? why leave!
