We have been following this thread for the past two days with interest in what people are saying and not the MSM and we have garnered some very good
information and links.
We are Located in Southern Ontario and we are not that worried, but yet we do already have some stuff done before this storm was on the radar so to
4 face cords of firewood ...check Batteries...check.....Lots of canned goods and non perishables......check
40 pounds of propane for our BBQ....check.....toilet paper and such check......
Water no, but we will have three days without power here before water becomes scarce.....
This storm reminds us of the big big Nor'easter that Sunk the Edmund Fitzgerald, and keep in mind this did not include a Hurricane.
This beautiful ship cruised past our city almost daily doing the iron run from the mines to Detroit.
Everybody recognized her as she was very big.
The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald with the words link below
Very old video but enjoy the the history here, filmed in 1976
A more recent video, with a very aged Gorden Light foot but no less talented.
Here is the storm system that brought her down and this did not even include a Hurricane
To the OP S&F and to all the posters here thanks so much for keeping us all informed with the latest updates and your personal stories regarding
Hurricanes and dangerous weather systems in general.
I should add here that my brother in law is a captain on a major ferry so the maritime theme to my post.
Land on the coasts will be very dangerous, on the water lord help you.
