    They're freaking our in Maine. I just laugh.

    I've been through a hurricane in Hawaii, and 8 or 9 in my 15 years in South Carolina.

    Here's a tip. For free...

    Don't live your life on government handouts, and think of yourself as so frigging awesome and special to think that nature really gives a **** about your needs or desires.... If a storm the size of your state is coming and you have like 5 days to evacuate, Shut the **** up, and leave. I don't wanna hear crying, I don't wanna hear moaning, you can start walking today and be in safety by the time the storm hits.

    If you live in a city, 3 feet below sea level, don't cry when 'da gubment' can't save your ass from your own stupidity.

    Well, for a change, Sandy missed us here in SE Florida. We did get some heavy rain and winds up to 50+ MPH, did some beach damage and limited flooding. Hopefully the people in its path are prepared.

    Gentle rain here right now. It's annoying because I can't do the outdoor stuff I want to do. Looks like whatever's left of Sandy will pay me a visit Wednesday and Thursday. Not too worried, though. Plenty of supplies, lots of gas for the genny, several cords of wood under tarps, vehicles are gassed up just in case.

    For those of you who may actually get hit with hurricane-force winds and rain, stay safe and don't be shy about bugging out if it's the smart thing to do.

    I live in Central NY and thats the direct path of this thing from what they are showing. Add to that that I live less than a 1/4 mile from Windmills on the top of a large ridge and Im a bit nervous but mostly prepared as I need to be. My house is 180+ years old and there is a reason its still standing today, its big and heavy and built to withstand time and Mother Nature.

    Guns and Ammo, Check
    Beer, JD and Munchies, Check
    Water, check
    Food, Check,
    Generator, Check
    Chainsaw, Check
    Fuel, Check
    Beer, JD and Munchies, Check

    Better check the Beer, JD and Munchies again. Luckily, where I live, were as near to off the grid as you can get so were pretty prepared come what may. I pray all of you out there fare the storm unscathed and safe!

    We are getting a lot of wind and calling for some light rain driven by 30-45MPH winds. Hope that everyone on the coast stays safe even if that means bugging out. The news is showing some ruff tidal surges on the outer banks of NC.

    Generator tested and full of fuel
    Liquor cabinet well stocked
    Truck full of fuel
    Plenty of wood
    Gas for grill
    Water
    might need to get some more rum it is getting windy :cool::p

    Here on Long Island I'll be just shooting blanks and spending a lot of time on the porcelain throne. Flooding, winds and power failures is much to look forward to.

    While everyone scurries for cover in the wake of Sandy, these guys will keep watch over the tomb of the unknown soldier. Just one more thing to think about that our troops do for us, the people of the world and tradition. Salute to you and all veterans.

    The center of the storm will either hit my house or miss me by less than 20 miles.

    Yay!

    Don't worry about me though, I've got a floating cooler and plenty of booze in case things get real bad. :D

    Dang it! I always forget the important stuff. Can someone please tell me what the popular shoe is today so that I don't pass over some Nike's worth more than my car and bring home some worthless Puma's.

    Wait... Why do you need water? It's pouring outside! You need buckets, you have water. :)
