    It's not a tropical storm but more like a summer Nor'easter. If this were snow, we'd have 4 feet of heavy wet snow to contend with. I wish I had that wood shed I am planning, but now I have to run home to cover up!

    Why bother covering up? It is going to come down so fast it won't have time to soak in.

    Perhaps tie it all down so splits don't float away is more like it :)

    I just secured my tarps and cleaned my gutters. I hope everything stays where I put it

    Eh, we're not supposed to get much wind. Even the outer cape is only supposed to get 40 mph gusts, much, much less sustained.

    Lots of rain though.

    I have a grapple load in my driveway I still have to cut/split/stack. Maybe I should go out and carve one of the larger logs into a canoe? ;-)

    I just turned the Ac's on to "dry", the humidity is getting to that "semi hurricane ridiculous" point :roll:

    Woods uncovered. 2 cord ready for this winter, 3 cords coming split in January. It's gonna get wet where ever it is :coolsmirk:

    I got home in time last night to cover 5 cord (this season's wood) with tarp the other 4 cord uncovered (2010/2011). This month of Aug has been hot and dry here in NE and a great deal of drying took place. I just to to keep as much water off this season's wood to stay ahead of the drying cycle as we're getting close to lighting up :)
