For the folks in the northeast be careful and stay safe...
I prepared myself by putting my main rig away and running this backup rig in my sig.
^ And how's that gonna help?
Not trolling, its an actual question.
the answer is personal, sorry
We already have rain & 40 mph + winds here on the Virginia coast and the storm is still hundreds of miles away.
lol your back up rig is kicking my main rigs arse...i'm getting old:3eyes:
Why not just use a surge protector...or am I misunderstanding what you said...?
got a surge protector, rather not chance my main rig when I have a fully functional backup
I help out a friend who has a emergency responce wate/ fire damage company so i think i will be swimming in basements for awhile.
Last years storm i found fish and frogs thats not bad its better then finding bodys
So all stay safe and batten down the hatches.
Yes its a huge storm......
I hope everyone in the path of this STAYS SAFE!!!!!!
So far, this "Hurricane" has been a disappointment for me.... Moved in on us about 6pm lastnight (at least according to radar shots) and it's been calm and drizzly.... same thing we get every time it rains.... So glad we blew money on "storm preparations" again...
Well consider yourself LUCKY my friend
Oh yeah.....real lucky... The radio made it sound like the world was going to end....so, wife went out and spent a ton of money on batteries, flashlights, drinks, etc....then I went and filled up the car, a gas can for the generator, my scooter (her's was relocated for the weekend), stocked up on food and **** for the guinea pigs. Just to sit here wondering why they made such a big deal about it.... We have summer storms that are worse than this...
wow 375.000 people evacuated
lol a hurricane disappointed you because it is calm and drizzly.
the authorities should had disappointed you for creating fear trough media and evacuating people for nothing
Problem with MY opinion? The radio claimed wind gusts up to 80mph, heavy rain, inland flooding, etc, etc. So yes, I find it disappointing that they've intentionally scared people when the "storm" is no worse than our typical showers and quite tame compared to our typical summer storms that they downplay...
"Hurricane" Isabel was only a tropical storm when it hit, yet it took down half the trees in my neighborhood. This storm, which they touted as being "more powerful"....isn't even moving the branches on my 100ft tall trees..... So yes, I'm disappointed by this "hurricane"....
Hurricane movement is often difficult to predict...
So far so good in central NJ. It's getting breezy here though. I'm gonna drive to NYC in some time. Hope Sandy subsides like last October's storm. Stay safe people.
the storm is still hundreds of miles away yet. Sunday is a walk in the park. Monday or Tuesday maybe bad, who knows
