    Even amazon sells them,just hook up to your municipal water supply,wont work on a well that needs electric to operate when the power is out. pumps 2 gallons of sump water for every gallon of fresh water used.

    I did not know that! Sounds interesting! Waste of water but I guess if it gets you out of a pickle it would work good.

    You could design one that runs off of steam created from a wood fire :)

    Well for $10 worth of fresh water it can pump 500 gallons out of my basement sump,maybe more as my lift is only 2ft rather than 4 ft example,beats carrying buckets of water in the dark.

    Latest string model predictions have tightened-up considerably.....seems like central Atlantic coastal states are probably going to bear the brunt of "Frankenstorm".....NY, NJ, CT may be front lines.

    +1 on that.....Do you stay home with the wife/kids, or do you go in and start the gens!!!!!!
    I'm sure it will be a bit of both.

    Just filled up the travel trailer with fresh water, propane tanks filled, truck filled with gas. With a fridge in the rv running on propane and propane stove and propane hot water heater and propane heat......should have my bases covered in case long tern outage. Still have a few trees with a lot of leaves....could be some downed limbs. Nothing that should hit rv or house. not exactly looking forward to this. Good luck everyone in the path!

    Not worried about an hour or two power failure but extended outages are VERY possibly with a large storm like this. NO way can i go for days without sleep bailing out my basement. Nor do i want to spend thousands for a standby generator like some of my friends did ,on the slight chance they may need it someday.

    This blows(pun intended). As of tomorrow, this is the first real vacation (a week or more with minimal work projects) I've taken in ten years. ;sick I was supposed to get a wood delivery next week, so that puts a kink in that probably. And I was going to go visit a cousin over in West Va. Oh, well, at least I will be home for damage control. Hey, at least we have the Halloween candy to raid!!

    I bought two Yamaha EF2000is generators today.. I got to the store 4 minutes after it opened and they were already taking phone orders on what they had... They are getting another shipment for Tuesday... I went to local tractor supply, they were out of genny's, but expect a truckload on Monday.. They are already starting a list. I remember after last years Halloween storm, the local HD had a list 600 people long...I put my name on tat list and they still haven't called me... Lol

    I'll be heading out into the Atlantic on a cargo ship in a few hours trying to go around the east side of it heading south. This is not going to be fun.
