You guys doing anything to get ready for this damn storm, or not believing the hype? I don't want to be without power again like last year, but also don't want to run out and drop big money on a generator.

Blah.

No one thinks to buy a generator when the weather is good. Now is as good a time as any. If you feel you might need one, get one.

We bought 20 gallons of gas for the generator, and filled both cars. Getting our food ready today. I spent yesterday tuning up the generator, and putting all the yard stuff away.
We know we will see 35+ mph winds and rain, but if it tracks more north, and collides with the storm moving east, it could be bad. Hopefully it dissipates before it gets as big as the meteorologist predict.

I know Crovo will be out working. So please stay safe my friend. Wink

A buddy of mine in NJ is looking for a generator. No luck. So I looked up here, and everyone is out here, too! Shocked

No prep here. May park the marshmallow under the carport and hope for the best. Landlord has generator and plenty of gas. We'll cross our fingers.

And c'mon OVERTIME!!!! Smile I need me some moneh! Pennies from heaven. Wink

Bought some water and batteries today. Topped off the VW. Dropped the wagon off at the paint shop, they're going to store it inside for me. My father scored a 5500W generator yesterday at a True Value out in the Berkshires.

Got plenty of non perishable food, flashlights and blankets if we loose power. Also, have plenty of beer, vodka and gin. Arrow

My storm prep involved checking to see if my generator is still under all that junk in the shed (it was) and as a precaution, change the transmission in the roadmaster. People often forget old transmissions hate hurricanes and will leave them stranded in it Razz

I spent half the weekend prepping. Laura and I are in the middle of a huge drainage project on the property and this storm has the ability to Eff up everything we have been working on for the last month.

I did some heavy trenching and diverting in front of our drainage project, as well as some preliminary trenching on the top of the property that will shoot water into the pond. Onto of that we called in a couple local teenagers to help us with our project for cheap money and got it about 75% finished, so we are feeling pretty good as long as my trenching holds up.

Excavator is full of fuel and ready to spend a night in the rain directing water were it needs to be, but I'm hoping it doesn't come to that.

We also stocked up on 20 gallons of gas, ran the generator to clean out the old fuel, filled with ethanol free fuel for the first two gallons and have 3 more to top it back off with after.

Crossing our fingers we don't get it too bad here.

I'm freaked about this- my '74 Impala is in a tent in Malden. But that thing has withstood a lot of powerful winds since it's been up over the past 4 years, on one side of it there is a garage, on the other side there is a fence with bushes and small trees, the back has a fence and small trees near it, and the front side with the door is kind of shielded from any wind by houses, trees, etc. I have the corners held down with stacked cinder blocks. I guess my main worry is a tree coming down on the tent and crushing my car, there is a big one actually right near the tent, but I think any big limbs that came off wouldn't land on the tent itself, and if any smaller branches blew over they'd get tangled up in the pipework/frame of the tent garage before hitting the car itself.

Part of me wants to just leave it outside away from any trees but then the rain would all leak past the back window seal into the trunk... Mad I need to find a better place for that thing. I've got a tarp and plywood down but technically there is still a dirt floor under that.

We're on the top floor of our apt, so no worries about flooding. I'm gonna put the caddy all up for the duration of the storm, no tent or cover this year for the car, spent the day picking up anything outside that may become a projectile. We live pretty close to the neighbors so Im not worried too much about wind. My biggest concern is my old man's place since it's completely open out there and regular winds will knock you down on a normal basis. I got alot of loose parts there that may end up disappearing.........look I know I said I wanted to get rid of alot of stuff, but this is ridiculous.

Also, my realtor said now that this could be considered a disaster area I might have to have the house re-appraised before buying...

Jeez Matt, with all the stuff surrounding the car tent, how the heck did you get it in there? Lol.

Reading it, the picture in my head was ridiculous.

I'm crossing my fingers a tree doesn't come down on the 9C1, but by saying that, I'm sure one will. Start calling dibs for parts now lol.

If we lose power, we're having a fried chicken and hamburger party before everything in the freezer goes bad. All are welcome, but I'll have to call around to see if anyone has power to post that it's on.

Now if the rain is substantial....

Yup, those guys are out there 24/7, no matter what. That was taken this morning I believe.

I went there when I was a kid, and even that young, I was incredibly humbled. I suggest everyone go there at least once.


On a lighter note, I decided to shut down the store early today, so we are out at 3 this afternoon and everyone is going to go home and hunker down.

My wife and I went there as part of an 8th grade field trip. That was 12 years ago. I still have a bunch of pictures of them changing the guard. I like the clicking shoes and their precision.

Closing early? Hmm.

We drove 30 minutes to Warwick today to a model train hobby store so I could get a few things in the event we lose power, I have something to do.

Lost one tent, over the frame. Thank god that the paint has fully cured! PHEW!

Hunkering down the other one before work. Yes the grocery store is still open, we close for no storms! Laughing I'm tying the main posts of it to the impala rear end, the frame, and the car. If that doesn't hold the tent down nothing will.

I worked today, installed a backsplash in Peabody, that came out pretty nice actually. Went to Malden right after that to check on the tent garage, the damn door was unzipped on one side! It doesn't seem like it, but the only thing separating Malden from the ocean is a couple of miles of open salt marsh. Te wind can just blast across then hits my old neighborhood near Reveah. The wind there was brutal, and there is a big-ass tree whose trunk is about 15 feet from the tent. I wasn't taking any chances, I figure that one rain storm won't totally rot out the Impala and took it to Reading w/me. The wind is bad here but noticeably less. Did see some trees dropping branches since the guy behind us doesn't find it necessary to cut down some trees that are falling apart right over his house, lol. My car's at the end of the driveway as far away from all the big trees as I could get it. I hope comprehensive insurance covers me for any damage! Left the Tahoe in Malden but might go back to get it later with my dad...I can't wait for this BS to be over. If power goes out, probably just try to drive someplace that has power and eat at a chain restaurant, lol.

A couple of flickers here but so far so good. No generator, but I have my jumpstarter and a power inverter just to recharge batteries. There's also a small army of free Harbor Freight flashlights and a few heavy duty flashlights on extended loan from NYCTA at the ready. Naturally my 18 volt six gazillion candlepower rechargeable light won't recharge now.

Patched the holes in the shed last night, so hopefully that won't blow down, but I moved most of the B-body parts indoors just in case. The back of the wagon is home to the recycling bins and snow shovels. I also replaced the halogen floodlight in the backyard that burned out about 12 years ago, so I can see what's blowing around at night.

There's a maple tree branch across the front walk, but no maple tree around there. Yikes.

Close. HO. But specifically 1/87 scale vehicle modeling/kitbashing.

Justin, if you read this, PM me your local hobby shops and let me know what scale you have.

Power had come back before I left for work, and I've been informed it's been flickering all day... Couple big trees came down on my street. Town actually came and cleared them within a half hour! Wow.

Was a crazy day in the bucket today. Good thing I wasn't up there long! Shocked

Waiting for my phone to ring for that callout!

I just had to do some driving, went back to Malden to get my truck out of there, it's a night and day difference there from Reading, so much worse, and Reading is even bad. A big limb, basically half of a tree, was dangling over wires that my truck was parked under, according to my brother. My dad gave me a ride down to get the truck, then when I got back home, I realized I didn't have my house keys or phone on me...so I had to go all the way back down there and then back up here again... Laughing

My tent garage was still standing as of about an hour ago, but slid back about 5 inches...and the door is just flapping around.

Lots of wind here on Cape Cod, MA. Rain is just starting. Power is cutting in and out. Lost power at work around 12 came home early.

I live on the south shore in Hyannis, where JFK was from. (Atlantic Ocean)

Here's some pics from around town..

I am in awe of that picture. It is very sobering. A real reminder of how powerful the ocean is.

At work now. 15 minute drive, roads are good, not alot of rain at all, but the wind is crazy. It rocks the Vic. Wife is out with offspring and says a whole section of town is in the dark. Not us tho. I did pass one crew restoring power at a single residence.

News says sandy made landfall in jersey not too long ago. Streets are flooded pretty bad there I guess.

Tim, this pictures are menacing. My wife saw them and was like "I wish we could drive down to see it". Agreed, but crazy.
