Ocean City, MD is have a full evacuation tonight at midnight. There is a chance I will be pulling into town just before.

Having a place on the water is great until something like this comes.

From experience, I've found that board games, liquor, and a few friends crashing on your couch make a fun hurricane experience. Box fans and ice are also good ideas. We filled every Tupperware and ziploc bag we had with water and froze them for long-lasting ice blocks a few days ahead of time. Good luck!!

As brewers, we are actually fairly well prepared. Have lots of propane to boil water if necessary. Lots of batteries for flash lights. A good book to read. Charge cell phones, iPods, etc. Get food you can cook without electricity.

Fill your tub with water. If you loose water pressure, use a gallon pitcher to flush the toilet by dumping it in the bowl. I'm a Louisiana native. As Long as your home is ok, the worst is just losing power for a few days and being hot and bored. Fill up your gastank too. It shouldn't be too bad though. She'll have lost most of her steam by the time it hits you.

Yeah, we used to do that all the time when I was growing up. We were on well water and would lose power in even small storms.

My wife is heading to North Jersey tomorrow morning to stay at her parents', so all I have to worry about is myself and my dog. I'm anticipating being ordered in to work for the whole weekend though, so I might have to drop the dog somewhere. The City has already started evacuating 2 hospitals on Staten Island.

One thing I just thought of for anyone that still has time. Get and have cash on hand and plenty of it. Once power is out pretty much no places will be able to take cards and many not even checks.
