I just remembered I left the wheelbarrow out. Went out in the dark and out it in a shed. Of course if the wind was bad enough, the whole shed could blow over!

I have a stainless steel table out there as a work table. Surplus restaurant equipment. Too big to put away and thre is a full sized sold lower shelf to it so no point in turning it upside down. I put a couple of cinder blocks on the lower shelf and left it at that.

I have a plan

To discourage (though it does not prevent) generator theft. As my house is around 400 feet back from the road, I will leave one of our vehicles parked across the mouth of the driveway. The property is heavily wooded and it would be hard to get in other than by the driveway. The lawn area is nowhere near the road, it's back by the house.

Our generator is heavy. If the thieves can't quickly and easily toss it in their nearby vehicle, perhaps our generator won't be as attractive to steal.

Pretty common. Mine is locked in the garage when it's not running and chained to the axle of my truck when it is running. Anything after that is covered by the Remmington 870 security system.

exactly...

take a good beer, strip it of its quality but keep the name...

After reading that, I can promise that I've purchased my last bottle of Shocktop or Bass... the only two on their list I like.

Its getting bad here and it hasnt started realy raining yet. Some local streets are already flooded from the storm surge. I am not worried about trees since the big one that could have hit my house was cut down 2 weeks ago. its going to be worse monday night and when the surges peak with high tide AND the full moon this could get messy. I am on a peninsula on the south shore of LI but it seems my house is in one of the better spots as far as flooding goes so lets hope for the best.

Will an 11 foot storm surge roll right over Fire Island or will it likely give you some protection?

Completely with you on the overy-hyping of every named storm that gets close to anything. Not trying to diminish the potential for catastrophe for natural disasters, but The Weather Channel, et.al. are absolutely guilty of grandstanding in the name of selling ads.

That said, we went to Myrtle Beach, SC this weekend where we were supposed to be under TROPICAL STORM ALERTS all weekend. Saturday was a little rainy and breezy, but without the hype everywhere, you wouldn't have known it was anything other than a slightly damp day at the beach.

Sunday morning, you could see the edge of the storm moving off to the northeast. Here are a couple pics from the balcony of the hotel from my cheapshit digital camera. More contrast would have been nice, but...
