I think that was a typo Rob, I think he accidentally left the word out. It is very still and quiet here, really kind of eerie.

Now that's preparedness! :lol: But if it gets as bad as they say it might, it just may require two cases.



Re read Terry's post...... It said he bought an EXTRA case of Yuengling. I take that to mean that he already has "some" on hand !!!!!!

I made a serious strategic error. In the summer I clean my AnthraKing and PV, wrap it up and stick it in a dry corner and break out the beer brewing setup. Stupidly, I've folded the beer setup and reinstalled the AK. I can stay warm with my little Jotul 507 easily for now but if I have to clean up like after Irene I will need tons of alcohol. BAD move.

Our computer guy called yesterday AM, his friend needs a generator.. He knows my customer has a Generac 5000. The customer was telling me all summer he wants to sell it. So I make all kinds of calls and emails and the customer emails me; I want to give it to my son and I want you to deliver it Sunday :shock:

I got an emergency ditch dug today and still have to do all kinds of prep in the basement. I'm going to run some epoxy across the floor where the crappy water based epoxy paint I put down last year has peeled. Very thin slab down in that 1/4 basement. Nothing but trouble since they had their addition put on.This is not my property, I just take care of it!


I got the green landscapers barrel and started to fill it. It's leaky :!: :mad: Had to take trash out of the grey one, it's full of water now..

I pray to God this is media hype but it doesn't look like it. If there's gonna be 75mph winds it might take my crappy generator roof away anyway. Gonna put some fast sides on that area if I can get to it.

Hmm, I don't like the look of that future look dog leg over central PA that means it's lingering way too long in one place. Sorry to be a poop but I have a bad feeling about this one. Yikes this thing is huge.

That's was my attitude up until about 2 1/2 years ago. I've had enough disasters to last me the rest of my life. Don't need another one.

We've already been issued a warning from JCP&L, 'In the event of a power outage for your area expect power to be restored within 5-10 days', but in JCP&L FirstEnergy speak that is more than likely 7-14 days.

A preemptive warning isn't going to make their ineptitude of preparing and handling a crises any better. I hate JCP&L. I wonder if PSE&G or Sussex Rural issued any warnings. Probably not, they don't suck.

As if I have the money for sustained generator use. I hope this storm is not what they claim it is. I hate this *censored* and I hate mother nature. Damn it!

I've been telling my wife for over a year now to buy beeswax candles and not the pretty smelling ones from Yankee Candle. A large beeswax candle will burn for over 100 hours and you can also buy a lantern that holds beeswax candles, which might be safer than a free-standing candle.

Your Homeowners Insurance will cover all costs to run the genny until street power is restored. If you have a claim for downed trees, etc.... just make sure the adjuster knows you were on a Gen for X days, burning at a rate of X gallons per day.



Ohhhh, we are getting rain now...... :shock:

The ground is really saturated now and is still soft from Irene. MY horse manure tractor and cart is up to the wheel well in mud dragging the feces to the back (no censoring). Softest I can remember in 18 years of being here. My point is a simple one, tree roots are not well secured now..... I will leave the rest to you to imagine. I am looking to buy ten million trees delivery next spring I am opening a nursery.

I returned from a two day trip to Quebec only to find out this is happening!!!! :mad: I was in Ohio this morning. Now I am going back to Canada. I hope to deliver on Monday morning so I can rent a car and drive home just in time for the worst part. Airplanes don't like to fly in this kind of weather!!! And you can guarantee that many will be cancelled!!! So best to rent a car to go home!!!

What is the over-under on when Obama will blame this storm on Bush??? :lol:
