    Hurricane Florance

    What's everyone doing to prepare for Hurricane Florance?

    We have water, canned foods, dog food, batteries, flashlights, gas for generator, fuel for tractor, taken umbrellas down, put trashcans in the garage, tied the boat off on the lift, and checked ditch lines. I'm sure I'll think of more to do in the next few days.

    Ya'll be safe!

    That's a good list. In addition, I'll need to move chairs off the deck and cut the grass closer than normal. I found out from past storms that it's a lot easier to deal with leaf litter after the storm with short grass.

    I might get a light stick or two for night lights, make sure the grill gas tank is full, get another bottle of propane for the camping stove, make sure I have a tarp where I can find it, sharpen the chain saws and have gas and oil for them etc.

    If it hits here, I'll be cutting trees out of the road; not only the subdivision but the state road to open it up. If we wait for VDOT, well let's just say it will be a lot quicker if I'm cutting. Power? We won't have power for anywhere from 8-14 days based on past storms. I'd love to have my 790 here but I don't have anywhere safe to put it during a storm. I might talk with an adjoining farmer and see if I can leave it in his field out of the reach of any trees. It will get wet but I would have easier access to it.

    I really hope Florence doesn't hit but it's not looking good at this point. Most likely, somebody is going to have a mess to deal with.

    As usual we have enough food in the basement for a nuclear winter.

    My list includes filling the generator and running it for a short while, filling both 5 gallon gas cans and the vehicles, making sure the extra sump pump works, filling the bathtub with water before the wind event starts, fresh gas mix for the chainsaw and running it a little on a few limbs that I have been collecting, clean the vines away from the end of the basement gravity drain that terminates in the road ditch. We have plenty of AA batteries for the flashlights and I'll charge up the LED ones I picked up last christmas for each car (USB charger).

    I like treefarmers grass cutting idea, if it dries out enough the next few days I will also do that.

    Never hurts to have too much drinking water.

    Be safe everyone, maybe it'll turn or weaken before landfall.

    I’m gonna fill a couple more gas cans tomorrow.
    Just in case it turns and pulls a Sandy.
    Be safe everyone.

    2lc -

    I like the idea of adult beverage supplies. We have the remnants of TS Gordon dumping rain in our southern Ohio hills right now. Seven plus inches of rain in the last 30 hours. Our small but heavily fruit laden persimmon tree toppled over a couple of hours ago. I'm not yet sure how hard that that dense wood will be on a saw chain, but I'll be able to report more later.

    Stay warm, dry, and safe, everyone!!

    I live far enough inland that I don't need to make special preparations for myself.

    I am getting my barn ready to be able to take in a few horses if anyone needs a place to stay if they need to evacuate from the Savannah to Charleston coast.

    You guys be safe on the east coast, this storm looks like it has the potential to kick butt and
    not move very fast after it makes landfall.

    This is the guy I always watch for tropical info, very good site, very good no BS analysis by Levi Cowan.
    He also has the latest hurricane model updates.

    https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/

    Click on vid for his current analysis.

    Click on forecast models at top of page for latest model runs, I like the GFS and ECMWF models myself.

    Stay sharp guys.
