Probably the wrong forum for this , but batten down those hatches all my coal burning buddies who in the path of this storm. It's looking like a pretty wide area with allot of you in the path. I know you guys are prepared as one can be in these type instances so fingers are crossed that no one gets hammered to badly. Lots of fresh water stashed and all that.

I'm looking to only be on the fringe, but still, I'm gunna make sure things are tied down around the yard. I have a 20 yrd roll off full of my last 20yrs of hoarding and crap ;) so I'll need to make sure that doesn't re-deposit it's self. Anyways, stay safe my friends.

Thanks Steve,
Pretty much ready as I can be here, just need to put away a few items like lawn chairs, grill, and trash cans but water, heat, gennie, gas, food, sump pumps, and lanterns are good to go.

Stay Dry

Another thanx for the concern Steve. Hopefully it'll miss you guys up there in the North. Us here in southern New England shouldn't get more than a little windy rain. Besides, nothing will top last yrs Oct. storm. (What a killer). I guess my Metalbestos chimney pipe will get an "attachment test" in a couple days. Have a productive week men. Joe
