Msnbc said this morning it's down to a category 1. But that friggin thing is HUGE! Just the arms of that storm covered Florida on the satellite map. I'd make a like a heard of pigeons & get the flock outta there. Even Sam boarded up DFH & cheesed it inland. I don't blame anyone for packin it in with that monster comin...

I live in S.E. Connecticut we are going (forecasters say anyway) to 70 - 85 MPH sustained winds. We'll see how it goes.

I put everything away yesterday so I could brew this morning. Finished before the weather got real bad. Raining real hard now and I am safe in the house drinking a few homebrews.

I just hope we don't lose power. I need my sump pump to stay working. And of course my fermentation chamber to stay cool.

Same boat. I live just outside Philly and got my pre-hurricane chores done yesterday so I could brew this morning. Started at 0730 and was done by noon. Now I've got a Victory variety pack and assorted home brews to get me through Armageddon.

Very nice. We stopped by for Hop Wallop and Yakima Glory...both very good, although I like the Wallop better.

Headwaters Pale Ale and of course Golden Monkey are my favorites. Also love Prima Pils and the lager. Come to think of it, I don't think they make a bad beer...

You are a lot closer to the main event than I am. I am just across the river from Philly.

Batton down the hatches and stay safe.

Same here, I'm screwed if power goes out and sump pumps stop. Back up plan is to somehow use the auto siphon :) Coming down good now but wind isn't bad yet so that is good. I know :off: sorry.

Aaaw,c'mon Irene! C'mon ta lur I yea c'mon...just had to say it...Just remember that storm is 500 miles wide,& only moving at 15 mph. It'll take a while to pass. Stay safe,& don't let brewing override your common sense.
