    I usually stock up for the storm season when the sale is on in the spring. No need to fight the crowds and inflated prices either.

    You folks east keep your fires lit and your heads down. I heard it described as a midwest blizzard with high tides and hurricane winds.:eek: Rain is over around here and the cold has moved in we lost 30::F in about 5 hours.

    Here we go again.

    I canceled a job until later the following week.
    I was supposed to start a renovation on a house Monday. We are adding to the first floor plus we have to demo the roof and do a second floor dormer.
    Maybe I won't have to do the demo:eek:

    Does a quarter of cream ale at my home bar count? Also a pretty good backup can stock in the fridge. Never can be too careful.

    62 outside this morning. That sunny 70+ deg day yesterday pushed the house temp up. We have a passive solar south facing glass enclosed porch that gets up to around 100 this time of year. Pushes the house into the 80s well into the night.

    Bring it on. Could be worse. Could be Frankentornado, Frankentsunami, Frankenvolcano or Frankenasteroidstrike.

    Just remember, beer in fridge, gas in the vehicle....I think that's it. Maybe some Doritos.

    I agree. They can wait till December 1, or even December 24 as far as I'm concerned.

    My new toy(boat)has a 29 gallon tank. I'm planning on filling it Saterday after we hit the water. That should leave us with plenty of gas. It was the biggest pain last October. Getting it everyday and waiting in lines sucked! Next genny will be natural gas.

    This stocking up. I don't get it. the storm will be here and gone in 24 hours give or take. I expect to be monitoring the water levels in both basements. if we lose power and we have an extended torrential downpour, I'm screwed.

    There are battery powered back-up sumps with an added solar panel you should look into. Specially since you now have some precious supplies down there!

    Only thing we stock up on is batteries and gasoline for the genny. Otherwise its the norm for us. We may get some extra quick foods we can toss on the grill or wood stove.

    And I bet if I asked for the blue van occupants to care for my pellets for me until the worst was over, they might have disappeared by then. Right? :)

    Yeah, I'm a little nuts....
