  • Unbelievable, an article about hurricane prep but a picture from the heartland showing a severe thunderstorm brewing.

    • Clearly, you’ve never been inland during a hurricane. It doesn’t just hit the beach and stop. 🙂

  • South Florida here with a few work throughs: For water containers, purchase soda in bottles, clean and fill with water. Ethnic food stores and gasoline stations for food.and other supplies.
    Also puppy pads for the pooch.
    Do what you can and rest.

  • Can you believe it? 16 years ago to the day of hurricane Katrina, Ida is coming ashore.
    NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft recorded for 10 seconds 151mph winds.

  • Yeah…….Hurricane Season 2023……..sigh.
    As a native Floridian, I’ve been through my share of Hurricanes & Tropical Storms.
    I’ve already strapped my Chicken Coop down. Don’t want the chickens to go airborne while inside the coop. Brought in all potted plants including my young Banana trees in 20 gallon grow bags. I checked my Generator last week….good to go. I’m a Prepper (since 2008) so the normal stuff (food, water, batteries, etc.), I’ve already got.
    I’m taking a lunch break right now at my Mom & Pop Shop, I’ve been prepping the office today while the wife is home cleaning up the patio of anything that might fly off.
    I’m on the Space Coast, so we won’t get direct hit but we’ll get Tropical Storm force winds (I’m guessing gusts up to 60-65mph) plus the chance of EF-0 tornadoes zipping by doing hit and runs.

      Freedom Summer tax holiday is going on until September 4th. Disaster Preparedness tax holiday will end September 8th.
