Default Hurricane Preparations?

It's been awhile since I've had to even consider this, so I'm hoping for some extra tips form more experienced folk from further south. It looks like we have at least a chance of a direct hit here in NYC.

My wife is probably heading to North Jersey saturday morning, so I really don't have to worry about immediate danger, just long term power outage. I'm filling my two Poland Spring bottles tomorrow and putting them in my lager fridge so that I'll have 10 gallons of semi-ice water. We are stocked up on batteries and flashlights, plenty of food, and both cars will be filled with gas. I also have two full propane tanks and my brewing burner. I have a decent First aid kit, but I'm not too worried about that because I am close to a hospital and drive a modified Jeep Wrangler .

And of course, most importantly, I am VERY WELL stocked with beer.

What is everyone else doing?

There was no mention of beer? Do you have beer? Should we worry?

Also, you drive a wrangler in NYC? Isn't that much like driving a Ferrari through a pasture?

Couple cases of water, batteries for the flashlights and a few food items.

Mostly I'm keeping my youngest away from the TV and newspapers so she doesn't freak out.

So I'm thinking I'm going to go to the local ice place right down the road and get some dry ice. I may turn one of my chest freezers into storage for food with the dry ice and then some more for my keezer. The only bad thing is I have 2 batches fermenting right now.screw buying water I have beer. I sure hope the basement doesn't flood that would screw up my pipeline.

You'd be surprised, there are plenty here. No one waves back, but I probably wave at least ten times every time I leave the house. Mine's manual too!

Nice! Having grown up west of Rochester, I know lake effect season will be in about 2 weeks!
