oh and a couple cases of beer.... almost forgot


And don't forget to run to the grocery store to stock up on bread and milk. That way when the power goes out it can sit there and go bad...


I stopped consuming Dairy and most forms of enriched store bought bread years ago... no worry's there


and I've taken steps to have power as well, ya know for the important things...
like keeping the beer cold...

You're welcome. Complacency kills. There will be people risking their lives to rescue the complacent who had the chance to leave, but didn't because they thought people were crying wolf.

I used to live on the Georgia coastline and a lot of people had complacent attitudes because Georgia's coastlines haven't been struck directly in more than 150 or so years, so I know the cavalier attitude.

Hopefully warnings will convince those on the fence to act.

I hear that noise brother! I don't mind losing power so much in the middle of the winter, nothing like snow-chilled beer

Yes, Jersey shore needs to end... However, if NJ is flooded off the map, you do know snooki will just relocate to a town near you!

scary!

Doesn't look like that is going to happen.

From the OP

Those who choose to ignore the mandatory evacuation order have been asked to place an ID card in their left shoe so they may be identified if necessary.


So the complacent will be risking only their lives, not that of any rescuers for there aren't likely to be any rescuers.

Man, some of you all are TRIPPIN over this lil cane.

If we were all in the same room, I would have to smack each and every one of you. You all would be freaking out as I lit the grill.

Its a small baby cane people. Get over it. Been through worse.

Lets get back to deficit reduction!

This is crazy,

Good luck to the people in that area.

I've also read that some warnings have been issued in new york (i dont know where) for crazy storms, you guys know if Montreal is gonna get any storms this weekend ? Im about an hour south of there, half way between the boarder and montreal.

Anyways, good luck to the people evacuating... it's gonna be tough getting 750,000 people out so quickly!

cheers!

Read THIS post on the previous page.

The danger is the amount of rainfall that will be seen due to the size of the hurricane

I just hope everyone stays safe and to please evacuate if you are in the path of the storm. Better safe than sorry. One hurricane has stuck with me is Fran, 1996. I live close to the geographical center of NC and the damage we sustained so far inland was incredible. It looked as if a bomb had exploded in some places. Some people were without power and water for weeks. All of these years later I can still see places that were forever changed by Fran. So just because this is supposed to be a weak cat. 2 or 1 by the time it gets to NJ/NYC doesn't mean that it will not cause a lot of damage.

Very true, I think people need to calm down and take a deep breath. I can't comment on hurricanes where I'm from but I've been in the middle of a good few when abroad, seems to be just my luck. Panic can cause more harm than good. If you have to leave, do it, but be calm, if you panic and get stressed then you're more than likely going to lose grip of the situation, make mistakes. Good luck to all those there and calm down to all those watching. The kind of hysteria that is being thrown about throughout the whole of the internet is masking the constructive advice that these people need right now.

Whenever I drive through New Jersey, I always act as though there is a mandatory evacuation.

I went through the first six pages of comments before chiming in. It looks like you all need a Floridian to opine a bit here.

First: there are only 5 categories (someone said he went through a 6...)

Second: a 1 or 2 are still bad storms. 75mph is the *beginning* wind speed for a cat 1. It goes to 89 before becoming a cat 2 at 90.

Third: Yes, the storm surge in a cat 1 would be an especially big problem, especially for the North East, where it seems like people do not have the habit of understanding what it's like to live on or near the ocean like we do down here. Even with the few affects from Irene, we still had water lapping over the top of our dock (I live on a canal at the back end of the Fort Lauderdale intercoastal system), which usually only happens twice a year from exceptionally high tides during full moons.

Fourth: A mandatory evacuation does not mean someone is "forcing" you to leave in the literal sense. It means that when the storm is raging, the areas under mandatory evacuation are estimated to be no-go zones, so when your roof starts ripping off and your home starts collapsing from storm surge, there are no emergency vehicles that will be able to reach you.

Fifth: There are people who keep saying they don't understand why we didn't have high winds here in South Florida if the hurricane was right here. You have to remember that hurricanes do not have contiguous wind speed from one end to the other. In other words, wind speed is not Cat 3 all the way from West Palm Beach, Florida to the other side of the thing. Yesterday we had a few rain squall gusts of 25mph or so. Power got knocked out before I even woke up yesterday morning. When it says the hurricane is moving 14mph, that doesn't mean the swirling wind around the eye, it means the forward motion of the storm. You have to remember that wind speed is strongest on the east side of the eye. (So, if it hits NY, Boston could be worse affected).

Sixth: People up that way are not prepared. We know the drill down here in FL. People in NJ and NY get hit so infrequently with anything, let alone a Cat 1 or 2, that they simply do not have the mindset to take it seriously. Those of of us who live down in the coastal south might think they are making a big deal out of it, but we have to remember that Mayor Bloomberg's comments are not for our ears. If a Noreaster were hitting Florida, I would assume the same kind of over-the-top warnings would be given because we do not have that mentality down here.

TOP THINGS PEOPLE IN THE NORTH MIGHT NOT GET:

-Remove things from your yard, it's not just about losing those items, they become missiles.
-You have to stay in a windowless part of your home, preferably near the interior.
-You need to have water available because the storm surge can pollute the system
-You should have a regular land line phone hooked up to avoid communication disruption. Portables don't work without power and cell towers can get damaged. Only the good ol' cord-ed (not cord-less) phones have the power inherent in the phone system to allow them to work. (I keep one in the garage just in case).
