Really, I think everything will be fine. I've spent a good chunk of my life in Louisiana and Florida, and have been through many of these things. This storm is already down to the mid-80s in terms of wind, and it will drop even more before it gets up towards NYC.

I think I'm going to brew in my garage tomorrow - Natural Disaster Ale. In a week with both an earthquake and a hurricane, good time to name a new beer.

The wind isn't the problem with this storm. The size of it and how slow it is moving it. The amount of rain and the storm surge is going to be equivalent to about a cat3. It shouldn't be too out out by you though.

Wind and rain picking up a bit here, but nothing to worry about yet.

Yeah, been raining here since about 11am. Pretty hard at times but nothing more than just a normal storm so far. Still a good ways away though.

I just filled a couple cornies with water, froze a bunch of bottles of water. I have propane and a burner so I think I'm set. Thanks for the tip on the bathtub water to flush the toilet, I wouldn't have thought of that. Good luck everyone

The neighbor from hell was screwing around on her roof earlier today before the rain came in. Hours later I have a basement leak from my furnace exhaust vent. I go outside to check and... no cap on the vent. That's new.

Thanks neighbor.

Yep, been raining all day, should continue for the next 36 hours. Not expecting any issues, I live on high ground. The river below us has risen a bit due to the rain, but it shouldn't cause anyone around here an issue.

Getting blasted here right now. Its been pouring for almost 12 hours and the winds are really picking up. I still have power though, which I definitely expected to lose overnight. If this is as bad as it gets, we did ok.

I've been without power for about 9 hours. How long can the meat in my ice box hold out?
