    Well I think I am as ready as I can be for this hurricane. I even took all the plants off the balcony and front stoop. Am more inland but figured I would rather be safe than sorry. The path looks like we will be getting strong winds. Have water in stockpots, a good stockpile of canned goods...

    ~The East coast is going to get slammed. We're in South Jersey and it's expected to hit early Sunday morning with 75-100 MPH winds. I think this is the biggest storm I've ever had to prepare for. Today I'm making ice, filling water bottles to put in the big freezer, packing changes of clothes...

    How many of you look to be in close proximity to Earl when it hits and who looks to be more than moderately affected ? ( inconvienced ) How are you preparing? Ocracoke Island in NC Evacuated as Hurricane Earl Nears Thoughts are with you either way...hoping for the best.

    We've all heard about the "transition" in life when your kids grow up... I really think that may be the understatement of the decade! Maybe it's just me, but it feels like I'm running as fast as possible, and still have no idea where I'm going :) There seems to be so much to get used to, both...

    For those of you that are in hurricane prone areas NOW is the time to check your supplies and start stocking up. It is recommended that you have AT LEAST a three day supply of food and water. From my own experience, I would start with a three day supply and build up to a two week supply IF at...

    Ergh. SO very glad that's over. There will be cleanup for ages and we still don't have any power where we are, but hopefully soon. My office has power, so they forced us to come in to work, even though there's nothing to do yet, as the Port of Houston is still closed. I guess they don't...

    well, i ventured out today to do my normal weekly grocery shopping, since my area was not hit hard. I will never understand people. I will never understand people who don't evacuate when told to do so (coastal areas) i learned that people had no ice. (duh, there has been a hurricane in the...

    Besides me? I'm not doing too much ~ just moving a few things indoors and making sure I have batteries for the radio and flashlights. I have to go get some dog food and some ice and that's about all I am doing. Which means we'll get creamed....the last tropical storm that went through we had...

    With Gustav getting ready to hit the Gulf Coast, I got to thinking about how lucky I am to live where I do. We're in upstate NY. We don't get hurricanes (though we have gotten rain from them on occassion - 1972 was the last major flooding from one), we've only had 2 tornadoes that I can...

    Just wanted to tell those FV'ers who live along the south Texas coast (Manyhouseapes, TexasPeanut) to keep safe, board up and evacuate if you need to. Will be thinking about y'all and hoping the weather doesn't get too bad --Michelle.

    Hurricane season is coming into the most active part...usually...so be sure you have everything you need. Hurricane guides are free usually at grocery stores or you can go online and get the info. Remember, 3 gallons (at least) of water a day for each person for 7 days. I know, that's a LOT...

    What's going on today? I need to go to the bank this morning. Then go to Dollar Tree for favors for dd's party tomorrow. No one has called so I only know of 2 that are coming for sure. How many favors should I buy? Then home to do some housework, :read: for a bit. It is supposed to rain...

    Just wondering since alot of us Southern ladies live on or close to the coast. If you were totally wiped out by a hurricane, and you could rebuild, would you, or would you move somewhere where there is less risk? I have been asked this so many times by tourist and northern friends. And, even...
  16. Christmas
    Ten reasons why hurricane season is like Christmas 10. Decorating the house (boarding up windows). 9. Dragging out boxes that have not been used since last season (camping gear, flashlights). 8. Last minute shopping in crowded stores. 7. Regular television shows pre-empted for "specials". 6...

    Well. . .according to the new estimations, Ernesto will be coming right over me. Lovely. Hopefully, it won't gain any more strength than it has right now. They have closed the schools tomorrow, but we have to go to work. They didn't shut down any government buildings. Bummer. . I was hoping...
