The forecasters are telling us that the hurricane in the Gulf will eventually have a near direct hit on my area Thursday (NW Louisiana). By then it should just be a tropical storm with 50-60 mph winds and lots of rain. NOT something I look forward to! But, as they say, use the 7 P's (proper prior planning prevents piss poor performance). So I have been recharging the starter battery on my generator and getting my gas cans refilled, etc. I sincerely hope I won't need it but if I do it'll be ready to go. B)

Just watching that on the news... batten her down John.............. best wishes, and we will be watching .... stay safe my friend......

Thanks Jeff. If my power goes out I have enough generator power to run most things, some lights, fridge, TV and window a/c. It's just a pita to do all that and then have to undo it all afterwards. Still, I wouldn't be without a generator for all the Trumpeter kits in China! LOL

Stay safe and dry John. No hurricanes up here thankfully.  The last one that did make it to Toronto was Hazel in the '50s and it caught everyone off guard.

Thanks Carl! Fingers crossed!

As they say, incoming.........we have had a few of the US leftover storms coming across on the jet stream, one just came through .......stay safe John.

 

I'm about as ready as I can be except I need to go to the store and get some more Friskies for my critters. LOL After that it'll just be a waiting and hoping game. :)
