I went to Lowes today for some needed supplies. It was a zoo. Everybody was buying flashlights, sump pumps, batteries, tarps, etc. I went up to the register with exactly ten stainless steel 1/4" nuts and bolts. My prep day was spent taking my forks apart on the Strom for a spring swap.

I hope South Jersey stays above water for the Hammer Run.

We get to experience Sandy twice. We were in the Dominican Republic (which shares an island with Haiti) when it went through Jamaica and caused a lot of flooding & high winds in Haiti. The DR had some rain & wind but didn't seem to get hit too badly that we saw.

I had too many errands to do yesterday so didn't ride. Purposely waited until later in the day to go to the grocery store. Not so much to stock up on storm supplies but because we'd just gotten back from the DR trip. We have a generator and the well pump, heating system and fridge are connected to the generator changeover panel, so it's not even that I need extra water.

I took my guidance on when to go to the store from noting something on the TV news about gas station lines the day before. On the late news they were saying that earlier in the day there were long gas lines and various belligerence, but that by evening there were no lines. So I went a bit later and the store was fine.

I might get in an hour or two today of riding, I don't expect rain until the afternoon. That would be the last time for a while.

Polar Bear ride got cancelled. Seems they weren't gonna let us across the bridge to Cape May, so it's off.

I got supplies. A half gallon of Mt Gay, a half gallon of Jack, and still have a case of Tuckerman's Pale Ale. The generator is full of gas, and have two spare cans to keep it running for a while. I did forget to buy a can of chain lube though, but I think we're good.

Was over at Home Depot in King of Prussia, and there was a frenzy as it seems they mist have gotten a tractor trailer load of generators. This woman had ideas she was going to fit this generator in her VW Golf.


Then there's this guy who was attaching his prize to his car with the thinnest bungy cords possible.

Just came back from riding. Starting to rain here on Long Island and people in ape-shit mode, buying all sorts of crap and clogging up the roads. It amazes me how people spend $$$ on perishables right before a power-outage but the canned food aisle is fully stocked and untouched!

I love riding right before a storm. Hopefully my neighbor's tree will not crush my home.
