Prediction is gust to 75 knots. That’s enough to cause significant damage. Especially if the ground is soggy from non stop rain.

Most of them are doing nothing trying to be MAGAhypocrites. Baz for example. Calls himself a capitalist, lives on the coast has No home owners insurance (he'll let others say in Iowa pay for his coastal home insurance) and says if his house gets wiped out by a hurricane he'll be first in line for FEMA checks and then call everyone else a socialist. That's what some of them are doing.

It probably time to post that Jon Stossel clips about all of the socialist that live on the east cost that repeatedly use federal funds to bail out their beach side homes over and over and over again. Go look thur Baz's posts he's a parasite.

A little advice, don't quote a post that doesn't belong in OT.

Maybe just the name at most.

Just in the time I've lived in "this" house....I've paid into homeowner's and windstorm insurance over $80K.

So far I've received just over $3K back - from FEMA.

Doing the math.......they still have over $75K of my money.

Am I beeching about it?

No.

Is someone else?

Yes.

I just checked the Brunswick County electric co-op's outage map. Of their 96k connections, 61k are out of service. Bad storm, really bad.

If there's anything I have learned through all the hurricanes I have gone through - it's to have a working generator and plenty of gas on hand. Plan for at least one full week (or more) for power to be off.

Also, make sure you have at least one window AC unit....two would be even better. Ones that have plugs for 110v. You can run them off the generator along with the refrigerator, washing machine, fan(s), TV/DVD player, microwave, and lamps.

Most dryers use 220v - and my generator can provide that - I just don't care about going that far with it.

Keep plenty of soup, water, juice, and other provisions on hand - and don't forget what's needed for the 4-legged children!

Propane whole house standby generator. Best money I have ever spent. Runs almost entire house (except electric stove/range) including the AC.

It is like the power is still on.

I do a Dr. Evil laugh every time the power goes out and that baby kicks on.

Enough Propane to last me 1 week at 24 hours running. By 4-5 days after storm typically the propane company will make a delivery.

250 Gallon Propane tank and I am no where near a storm at the moment, sun is out and the skies are blue in South Florida.

I want to put in a second 250 tank for insurance. I might one day.

Just got a text saying an electric truck passed over the Bonner bridge back into the Southern Part of the Outer Banks. My buddies electric is on, and he said people are moving about, but the water from the sound is still flooding a lot of the island. It will take a day or so for it to flow back out
They are saying 12 south should be open to the Public at 7 am on Monday morning. Ill be parked there at 5 am ready to plow in .
Messing with Baz outside of parf could land you a horsehead in your bed.

Sweet setup, Jim....I like it!

10kW?

That's really the way to go.

Thanks for the update at your buddy's place, Fred. That's great news.

And for having my back.

You're a good man!

17KW I went all in. As I said best money ever spent.

In 2004 I was using a little gas generator with a window unit in 1 bedroom and it sucked.


In 2006 I put in the 17KW setup with 250 gallon propane tank.

I never go another chance to use it.

Then last year Irma knocked us out for a week, it was a godsend.

If you live somewhere like we do, it is a no brainer one less thing to worry about when a storm is coming.


I also just replaced half my homes windows with impact windows, I now have half the world to do when getting ready.
