The freaking 'news' stations are scaring people. This morning we saw this warning:

Winds...east 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph.

Timing...this morning through Tuesday morning. Strongest winds will occur from late this morning into this evening.

Impacts...a significant threat to life and property exists. Damaging winds will result in widespread power outages that could last for days...damage to structures and homes resulting in debris...and downed trees and power lines. Debris and downed trees could in some cases block roadways. Precautionary/preparedness actions... For your safety remain indoors as much as possible. If you lose power...use flashlights instead of candles. Do not go near fallen wires.


Really? Winds of 20 to 30MPH with gusts up to 60mph will cause damage to structures and homes...SIGNIFICANT threat to life? I wonder why I haven't died yet every time I ride 60mph causing a substantial damage to surrounding property

I know, I know...a different animal. I could understand a warning like that if we would actually see hurricane force winds. A gust of 60 is not a hurricane.

Now flooding...that could happen. (and will)

Canoe - check
12ga - check
4x4 car - check

Point Pleasant Beach, Sunday

Hey: Pt Pleasant Beach, Sunday appx 12 noon. About 1.5 miles from my house. Getting windy, but I've seen worse. But we'll see what monday brings.











I looks like not everyone in this ocean front condo purchased the optional storm protection.

My preparation was to go commando. In case of a fright, there won't be as big a mess to clean up.

Generator in garage w/ fresh oil, almost full of gas, gas can w/ 4 gallons. I'm go to go for 4 daze on that.

Gutters free of leaves, fire pit in garage along w/ 2 Honda dirtbikes, 1 circa '70s minibike, 1 Honda Ruckus, 1 Honda Superhawk

Didn't get any good beer, just some High Life

No Spudwieser in my casa & Dougie Z for $7. I would have gotten Dogfish Head (I know a couple of bucks more - but well worth it)

And I got to say, they had the storm timing exactly right, started raining @ 0800 in Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Parts of the Ct coast are being advised to evacuate. I'm on a rather tall hill, so I'm not affected, but several neighborhoods along the Thames River have been notified. The Gold Star Bridge (I95) is going to be closed shortly.

We have a mandatory evacuation for where I am (SE CT coast), but we're staying. Don't think the wind or rain will be that bad, but the storm surge could get gnarly if it coincides w. high tide. Will post photos if I get anything good.

Fingers crossed though that we won't need it. (Since we spent big $$$$$ on it, not even one outage yet).
Weather wise, it's been VERY windy here all morning with sporadic rain.

Nice. I would do the same....if I had a garage.....or a generator for that matter.

Power goes out, we deal...like camping in a big wooden box. I camp enough that living with out electric for a few days is no big deal. One bottle of water, for brushing teeth and ghetto washcloth shower is good enough for me...that is why they invented deodorant, right.

Now the wife on the other hand...cable and power go out, it is the end of the world in her eyes. The dogs and I would be perfectly content in the nice quiet house, so long as hew whining does not drive us batty.

Generator falls into the "Better looking at one than looking for one" category.

I need to set mine up to run in the garage. One of those projects I put off until later and then its storm time and its still not done.
