I guess I missed this before, but I was thinking the same thing. I'll probably get at least one day off so I was thinking of doing a brew during the storm and giving it a hurricane related name.

I must admit, I'm a little worried. The eye is gonna park over my house and dump rain for about 3 days. This is my back yard last September when "Lee" went by.

If I wasn't already ordered into work, I would personally ditch my family and do whatever it took to help you protect that awesome fireplace hut thing.

Stay safe and dry, east coasters. Next time I get the itch to complain about living in the Midwest I'm going to shut the hell up and thank the gods that we don't get these big, nasty storms.

Certainly not looking forward to Sandy. They've already ordered the evacuation of the barrier islands such as Absecon Island (Atlantic City) by 4pm tomorrow. Since I work there, I guess that means I get a couple days off. I have everything from the yard secured, have plenty of food, water, propane, flashlights, candles and beer. I expect since this storm is forecasted to come right through my back yard, I expect we'll be without power for a week or better. I'm most concerned with the high winds coupled with all that rain bringing a tree down on the house or something. Guess I'll see you guys on the other side.

I'm filled up with propane, beer, CO2 and a generator. I'm not worried about looters--I'll just pass out brews and get 'em on my side

We got hit badly last year here in NJ--Irene, then a freak October snowstorm. I'm hoping it's mostly hype, but I figure I'm ready if not.

That's a good looking pizza oven. But why did you build it in the middle of a lake?

I built one too. Started it last spring, figured it would take a month or two. I did not factor in that we were going to get rain 6 days a week last year. So it took a little longer than planned to complete.

That's no pizza oven, that's the bell-fry on his castle!
