    Seems like it will Loon, I'll get the Cherry tomorrow then grab some gas for the generator after, push in some wood then make sure the covers on our wood are weighted down good.

    I'm hoping the brook can hold what Mother Nature brings, one good thing is the level of the water in the brook is down.

    The bestest neighbors came over before and offered to run a hose over (they have city water), so we'll be good in that respect. I took them up on it :cool:

    No zap, irritating story really, not getting into it@the moment, I'm #22 on a list @sears hardware, and they are expecting a delivery of 20 on sunday. If 2 people dont show up when they are called its mine. I really hope so! Local news says expect outages for up to a month, and expect sustained winds@ 35-55mph, and gusts up to 70mph. Probably going to wifes grandmothers house during the worst bit, to support her, and get out if these woods. Not worth the risk in our flimsy 1 story small house. Be well

    Stay safe, I thought we might be outside the zone but it looks like we might get hit.

    I am going t town in the morning to get gas for the gen.

    I think everybody from the northern mid atlantic to new england will get pounded. I'm hearing this storm may slow down/stall northern pa, ny, southern new england, dumping a few more inches of rain than previously anticipated. We're expecting 5 to 10 inches of rain.

    Mid-Atlantic is done for!

    When I was back in NJ, one storm with 45 MPH gust put the electric out for 4+ days.....since all the utilities have been deregulated, they cut their maintenance fleets way back and rely on each other when an emergency happens. Problem is, this one will knock down tree in a couple hundred mile path.

    I'm not too worried up here in New England because we had a couple storms in the last couple of year that knocked down most of the weak trees.....but I think there are gonna be BIG problems down that way!

    Batten down the hatches.

    WOW, They expect 30-50mph wind causing month long outages? For real? Somebody from your elec co should have their head on a plate for not doing better tree maintenance around the lines if that happens.

    Stay safe!

    They'd love to do more tree maintenance.
    Thier ROW is only so wide. Private trees, off the ROW, are the ones that usually fall on the lines.
    Owners don't want their trees cut.

    Hang in there, it hasn't hit yet. May not be as bad as forecast.
    They really don't have any idea how much damage will occur.

    Just sold my two backup generators on craigslist for twice what I paid for them. Listed them too cheap I guess. They went in fifteen minutes.

    Yeah I know. A gouger. But my old ass has to heft'um up into the truck and out of it. And I didn't wait till a storm was coming to buy the damn things.
