Hurricane Irene Thread

I spent the morning battening down the Crab house and stocking up in anticipation of the storm. Filled my propane tanks and gas tanks for generators if necessary. Still have to go get a new blade for the Stihl chainsaw. I also have to move the Jayco out from under the trees. Will pull out the boats tomorrow.The navy sent its ships to sea at Norfolk and NASA at Wallops Island Va. put employees on high alert. NC and Va declare state of emergency. This could be a bad one, still hoping it veers offshore. I will be updating the conditions if I can.

Siightly offshore puts Nova Scotia in it's path. How about filling your water tanks? I'll be topping off my Propane tanks as well tomorrrow. Last Hurricane that came through here we had no power for 4 days.

Not a bad idea to also fill up the water tanks. Since I have well water, I can use the genny to power my water pump to the house if necessary. When I say I want it to veer offshore I of course mean out of harms way for all involved, preferably the mid Atlantic Ocean!

If they give an evacuation order, towing the TT with you might be something to consider. A CG inland to the west would be a better spot to be. All the best wishes for you and everyone's safety.

Crabman, you should have hooked up and went on vaction yesterday. I just hope it veers out to sea and leaves everyone alone.

Good luck Crabby! Hopefully it will go away....hard to believe any forecast this early as they are seldom accurate....

Come on this way - we have room....you can pay rent in crabs.....

Wow, earthquake aftershocks and impending hurricane! East meets west! Kinda like a surf n turf opportunity You have a great start getting the water/propane tanks filled. Do you have extra water and canned foods stored somewhere safe also? I'm guessing you have a 'hurricane emergency food supply', batteries flashlights, etc etc all ready just as we west coasters have our 'kits' ready for floods, fires, quakes. David has a good idea to tow your tt to an inland cg! Good luck

Yeah we have all that stuff. I would love to take a vacation inland but just have too many interests here to look after. My 83 yr old mom may have to come stay with us Saturday night, she lives in a trailer. The property here is not prone to flooding. The Crab house is very prone to flooding. Wind damage is also a concern.....
