Very, very true.I never take a hurricane for granted. I've seen many, and I don't like them. One thing is.... They generally let you know they're on the way, unlike tornadoes, and earth quakes.
Some time this month, I'll replace the fuel in my generators, work on the one with carb problems, fix the leak on the other one, and put in fresh (non-ethanol) fuel. I run them once a month year 'round. I'm also making an effort to remove things that might become projectiles. Those accumulate during winter. The chainsaws just got worked on. I'm ready to stay and always ready to go. I'll never sit through another major one if I have a working car.Jules, you've been here longer than I have... But, it seems EVERY hurricane season is always above average. Then again... it only takes one.
Yeah, I know, hype = profit. Last year they said pretty much the same thing. Though it was a fairly active season, Florida got a reprieve.Jules, you've been here longer than I have... But, it seems EVERY hurricane season is always above average. Then again... it only takes one.
As a member in good standing in Curmudgeons Local #42, I freakin' hate the Weather Channel for over hyping every heavy dew as the next 40 Day Flood. And Get Ed Off My Lawn!
As I recall, it was just after 8 that I first noticed the turn toward us and instantly decided to leave.At 8 in the morning, Charley was going to Tampa.
Ya, Irma. That beyatch greeted us three weeks after we completed the move here to Rancho de la Foxtrot. The wifey was NOT AMUSED.The only hurricane that hit us after we moved here is Irma.
