I know a hurricane isn't a laughing matter, but I was expecting this to be BOTD.

At least I don't have to stock up on too much gas for this one. Not for $2.62 a gallon.

Jeanne was a sissy. Andrew was major. Really major!

Katrina has potential to gain strength from her 8 mph travel speed and hundreds of miles of really warm water. She'll be a bitch when she hits, but not as bad as Jeanne IMO.

I'm not sure i'd like to go thru another Andrew type catastrophe, although now my SHTF prep is solid!
I was completely unaware of what a hurricane could do until I got hit by and dealt with the aftermath of Andrew.

Just moved here a month ago. Looks like this is going to be my first tropical-storm/hurricane since getting here. I'm a little north of West Palm Beach but I'll still get hit it looks like. Should be interesting. Storm shutters were supposed to have been installed a couple of months ago but the company has been dragging their feet.

Link Posted: 8/24/2005 12:15:52 PM EDT
Meh. Unless she gets a lot stronger in a hurry, I'm not even going to think twice about this one. Just and inconvenience.

Yeah, we probably won't lose any roofs. But we probably WILL lose power for a day or two and that means no AC and you are protecting your property all the damn time.

That's almost $500 in gas, assuming they're all close to empty.

1. 22 gallon car - 1/3 tank.
2. 34 gallon diesel truck - Front tank 1/4; Rear tank 1/2.
3. 2 5 gallon gas cans - Empty
4. 30 gallon gas caddy - Empty
5. 12 gallon skiff boat - 8 gallons
6. 28 gallon BW boat - Reading empty; probably about 1/4 tank
7. 45 gallon pontoon boat - 25 gallons.

So, I probably have 120 gallons to buy today. At $2.50 that is $300!

Go buy a bunch of 3/4 in plywood and a dozen tarps now becasue you'll need 'em eventually.

I've got a 23'-6" center console with a 120 gal tank feeding a Yamaha 200 HP 2-stroke. I put 102 gal in it last weekend at the marina for a $330 purchase!

You big truck boys wanna talk poor fuel economy? How 'bout <3 mpg at OPTIMUM cruise speed (~28 mph).

That's OK, though, 'cause boats are a BLAST!

Not to nitpick but Andrew was in '92.

My buddy's 26' Contender with twin 150s gets 1.1mpg when we go offshore.

Here's latest infrared...



The animated version shows almost no westerly movement for now - just a rather unorganized blob boiling so far. I went out on the balcony and my guess is 10-15 MPH breeze so far up here on Cocoa Beach. Might be too far north here for much more than that. We'll see what the heat today does to this pup .

Just out of curiosity, do the big home centers jack-up the price of plywood when trouble is brewing?
Link Posted: 8/25/2005 1:02:48 AM EDT
twonami: They could. I bought some propane tanks at the local Home Depot store in Nov 1999 for $27 each. In Feb 2000, they had lowered the price to $24.

At least this one won't be very destructive, as far as winds. Rainfall is the big threat with this one. It may drop a deluge on the area it effects.

I'm kinda hoping the remnants track across KY. We could use the rain here.

Cat 1 at the most. What you need to worry about is the possible 15 inches of rain if she hangs around long.
