    I need to buy a new front storm door and I am reading the reviews online and they are awful. I found a door at Lowe's - that had bad reviews; found one at HD - that had bad reviews. The Pella door has this hideous brass trim I hate. I want a bronze/brown door with two windows and a screen that...

    I'm really scared of this storm...We are without power (Thank Goodness we have a generator) and not sure when we will be restored along with million's of others that I read are also without power..I'm holding back the tears as I see my one Big Beautiful Red Maple Tree has not shed her fur coat...

    One thing always leads to another.... It hailed, damaged our neighbors' roofs, somehow missed any major damage on mine, but got our truck. The insurance doesn't total our '95 Ford F250, and gives us $2500 for those hail dents. We didn't even get the chance to fix the dents because...... That...

    Nope, not really. :thunder: But, it's coming soon. Every year for the past four, we've experienced a winter storm that knocked the power out. This year I intend to be completely prepared for everything. No rushing out to get something I've forgotten, no moving in with a friend who has power...

    Still have power here but the rain may do us in. Living on the creek and having lots of rain could have us without a house. Hubby is really worried. I'll keep you posted. NY Weather Alert - weather.com How's everyone else doing? Wishing for good things for all.

    Anyone else making a mad dash to harvest what's in the garden before Irene hits?? With 75 mph winds and torrential downpours I figured I get what I could out of the garden today! Living next to a major river (and I mean literally next to) I'm more concerned with flooding but having toughed out...

    Good Morning everyone the skies are angry here today! Wow Storm!!! We have had wicked thunderstorms come through since last night. It is calm now but the weather network is calling for thunder storms all day. DD says that we can't walk to school because we might get struck by lighting. She is...

    As if last week's storm wasn't scary enough, we have another one on it's way towards Florida. It will be here in a few hours. I can see it creeping it's way closer on the weather reports. I hope that we don't have the damaging winds like the other one. Last week, it damaged 69 planes at the...

    I know a lot of us have a good stockpile , etc. But if a winter storm is coming and you think you might lose power, do you precook food and lay in extra stuff ? We have a good woodpile stacked for heat. The generater has gas in it. I keep some extra water in jugs. All kinds of food here...

    I checked the weather channel & in a red boxed area it said our area was now under a tropical storm warning. Earlier this morning the sun was out & not a cloud in the sky.....now all of the sudden we are looking at black clouds coming off of the ocean and the winds have picked up a little...

    Had major storm tonight with hail (some the size of a soft ball), severe lightning, wind, tornadoes, electric out, 4 inches of rain. A mature tree in our back yard crashed, but missed the house. Now we are expecting a second wave in about 20 minutes. Yikes! Last June, a tornado tore through...

    We had the biggest wind storm on four years yesterday, which knocked the power out. It's still out this morning, and the latest estimate for getting it back is tonight at 11:00 PM. :( One thing we learned was not to assume that the power company knows your power is off. When it first went...

    Do any of you get storm headaches? If so, have you found anything to relieve it? Ibuprophen doesn't work for me when its storm related. I've been tracking and its the increasing pressure that's hurting not the dropping in pressure. Maybe aspirin as a blood thinner? This year has really...

    Are you looking foward to it or dreading it? Here in Louisville they keep changing the perdictions. Personally I keep hoping for a load of snow. :toothy: I wouldn't want the ice that people have been hit with. :( There are too many problems with electric outages and heat. My sister-in-law in OK...
