I already have food / water provisions and things like batteries and candles stocked. I did top off the gas tanks and got 2 new propane tanks for the grill. Fingers crossed, too ;)

On a side note, I went out early this morning too exchange the tanks Home Depot already had long lines for what I assume was a sign up list for generators.
The store had armed security on duty also, weirdness.....

I buy propane tanks. Never trusted the swaps I tried it did it like 5 or 6 times. Once got a empty tank and the guy told me i was lying and i was just trying to get a free tank full. and one tank was leaking bad scared the crap out of me. There a place in my town that fills your personal ones. I bought 4 tanks of my own and get them filled there for 15 dollars per 20lb tank

took all the decorations off the deck, will tie down the furnature to the deck , have nat. gas so i dont have to worry about cooking. not worried about flooding on the hill overlooking Sikorsky, so if we get flooded the state is in deep doo doo, aqs the Merritt pkwy will be underwater. Also the boss called and aske if we are avaiable for OT the next few days during the storm, told him of course! the money will go to some new toys!!

Plenty of preps and provisions at home. It's sad seeing all the sheeple run around like idiots. You would think they learned after last year. Next week will be a shit storm at work though if the power goes out. We'll be fighting off 1k plus angry residents...

Was out most of the day clearing leaves, most are down. Brought in all out door furniture, cleaned the gutters and topped off my supply of gasoline, 5 in the generator and 10 in cans. Topped off my gasoline powered vehicles as well.

I have all other provisions and topped off the propane during the week.

Just hope it is not as bad as it looks.

put the ice in the fridge, it's a better insulator than most coolers, and it's already cold.

I keep room to store a few blocks of ice in the freezer, helps keep things cold and blocks last longer. And if need be it can be emergency water.
