I dunno guys, I'm thinking Irene on steroids. I wanna move to western PA. This is creepy! Personally, I blame Bush. If our power goes out I am sure FEMA will bring us candles by December.

After my past experience with the water table invading the cellar I plan to buy gas for the generator ahead of time. Not much else to do, 2 pumps permanently installed and 2 more at the ready. I suppose I should make sure I have enough beer...

May be very intense by joining with a NorEaster and then smacking into the coast.
The latest is saying it may come in here at MD, the wife and I are planning to go to Atlantic City this weekend for our Anniversary :lol:

I *censored* hate mother nature. I swear to God that if this thing screws with me I will find where mother nature lives, tie her to a chair and torch her house.

I'll be buying gas beforehand as well as making sure everything works as it should.

IOF don't forget the drinking water !

I personally get a rush from Mother Nature, love to watch lighting storms, love to drive in snow storms, the house is on a hill so water should not be an issue but the winds on the other hand I'm not a fan of because they tear some *censored* up.

As long as it comes in where and when they say, I'll be fine.

A little north or at a different time and I'll be underwater.

I have been watching and listening to the predictions about this storm or well over a week now. If it hits where they say, the western side of the storm is going to be all snow, say the Alleghenies west. I mean a lot of heavy, wet snow. So take your pick.

Here is the current position and predicted track of Sandy. The pink is where they think the heavy, tree breaking snow is going to come down.

It's like Deja' Vu all over again......


Didn't we deal with a snow storm about this time last year ???? :wtf:


Oh well what happens, happens...... Got 2 cas cans full in the garage already, another 2 will be filled today for the generator. Genny will run the well, the AA 260, and the TV's.


Now if only the Mrs. would cooperate, it could be a great time...... :idhitit: In reality, I'll just sit and look out the windows !!!!!



At least we do have a little time to prepare.

All summer long I told my customer she needs gutter extensions. "Ohhh noooo the deer might trip over them." The guys that fixed her high porch roof botched the guttter screens, big gaps with standard screens on 6" gutters. Saw that yesterday as I tried to find the roof leak in back.

i have to take our back porch door off to get the generator out. Shed roof I made last year still has tar paper on it, better redo that fast and get some firring strips on it. Gotta dig a trench in front driveway with the rototiller today. Water based Epoxy floor paint I put down last year in the basement is peeling, gotta roll out some real epoxy today, see if Home Depot is sold out of sump pumps and get a new one hooked up.
Have 30 gallons of gas on hand no more cans left.

JCP&L was so bad last year there are still lawsuits going on from local towns. THIS SUCKS!

I'm moving to Florida where it's safe!

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 !!!!!!

My wife is going to clean the gutters out again tomorrow while I'm at work. We've got 21 gallons of gas and I was going to change the oil in the generator but it was recently done. Maybe I ought to keep a log on when the thing was serviced?

I see it's supposed to rain all day tomorrow. Hopefully there will be a slight break around 1600 so I can change the spark plug and sorry filter in the generator after I get home from work.
