I got pounded by hurrican Hugo years ago. No water for two days, no power for two weeks and no cable TV for a month and a half. We used the headlight and battery from my Microbus for light. Everybody we knew did okay though.

Hope you guys make it through without casualties.

Well it is starting to get windy here already even though the eye of the storm hasn't even made landfall. I should be fine over here, Joe you hang in there buddy. :agree:

the eye has made landfall, but not the center of the eye.

we are currently getting 30mph winds with gusts at 50.
tomorrow winds are supposed to be 60mph with gusts even higher then that.
were supposed to get at least 10 inches of rain.

You guys are getting all this and we complain when we get two or three inches of rain here in the UK.

I just hope you and your loved ones, ohh and your cars make it through unscathed.


Rob.
