The Eye of the Storm!!
« on: September 02, 2010, 11:30:02 am »
Sitting here at home waiting for Hurricane Earl to pass by so I thought I'd give live updates (as long as my internet and power last) along with periodic photos.

News reports say it's 135 mph winds and a Cat 3 and we are starting to get some light wind and rain.

Ike 2 years ago was a strong Cat 2 (120 mph) and I was without power for 12 days. Stay away from the windows!

And if the power goes out and you don't have a generator or anything, for Pete's sake empty out the freezer after 3 or 4 days.

Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Yeah, back in 1998 we had a severe ice storm and we lost power for 11 days! I can't remember specifically, but I think we ended up using the outside as a refrigerator/freezer. Luckily we got a generator after a while.

Man, and people here were upset when the streets flooded a bit because of heavy rain.
Good luck!

Still waiting, the rain comes in bands, still light. It's getting a bit darker outside and most of what happens will be during the night.

Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?
