    Not unless you are expecting a hurricane ! :)

    I put them on mine.
    We get high winds, wood shrinks & gets loose at the nail joints.
    Helps with any movement, including earthquakes.

    I just picked up a 10K Generac generator at Home Depot. They had 3 in stock when I called, by the time I got there an hour later they only had the display model left. Really wasn't planning on buying it but got caught up like everyone else! Now just need to stock up on the beer tomorrow. Other then that we're ready for the storm.

    Many times, gas in the tank is better than money in the bank.
    Better interest.

    Well, I would like to let my fellow hearth members in the Philly area know that this storm won't hit us very hard. I just plunked down the money for a Yamaha inverter generator from Amazon.

    Instant insurance.......that I won't need it. :)

    I don't normally buy into the hype of all this, probably because I've been in the Public Safety/Public Works field for so long, but it's up to each of us as individuals to prepare and protect ourselves and property. In my case, I have to be out in it, working in the worst possible conditions which is, often times, very dangerous. I make the preparations so my family is as safe as I can make them since I'm not there when whatever event actually happens.
    Having said all of that....I test ran my generator yesterday and she runs like a champ!! Be safe everyone...especially those of you in the mid atlantic states.

    According to "predictions" (ya, I know), this will be no "24hr" storm. Possible widespread power outages could last into election day in the Northeast. It's to start Sunday and peak with the arrival of Hurricane Sandy on Tuesday.

    Better to be prepared then not to be!

    My daughter, who is a meteorologist in WV called me last night and said "Just wanted to call to say goodbye." Should I be worried?

    Is there no end to the misery??? Just getting cleaned up from a catistrophic earth quake, now we have to endure the worse storm in the last zillion years. Thank god I have a supply of George Dickel, a fine sipping whiskey, to help me through this. Also a couple Honda generators, and a large supply of pellets just in case for the first time in my life time, they are correct.

    I think im going to invest in one of those water powered backup sump pumps. If i lose power during a rainstorm ill be bailing water constantly or my basement will flood.

    Water powered? If you mean battery powered, get a generator instead. Not sure how long those batteries would last constantly pumping water.
