This Left Turn Is Nuts

Cape May, Wilmington, Trenton, Philly, all could be in for a rough time. I’m not terribly thrilled by this latest run, as it now puts Bingley Manor firmly in the NE quadrant, which is never where one wants to be in a hurricane.

    Yup, last weather report I heard is that our area is going to take a direct hit. Wherever it hits, both of us are going to be inpacted…I’m kinda getting scared..

    Well, Donna, do what you can do to follow Sis’s advice below, stock up on water and canned vittles and booze. That’s what I’ve done.

    I’m spending tomorrow pulling all my kitchen base cabinets out and moving them to the dining room, which is one foot higher than the kitchen. I had seven inches of water in my kitchen from Irene. I just finished replacing the bottom 3 feet of sheetrock, repainting and repairing the kitchen cabinets the end of last year because of that, I guess I’ll be doing it again.
    Good luck, Bing.

  4. Mr. Bingley says:

    Ah geesh gregor! At least I don’t have that worry; you know how Bingley Manor is sited: if I have flooding issues then we’ve got a whole host of other issues to worry about! No, my only real concern is the big honking trees…

    Just found out the 3,500-watt generator isn’t big enough for our house and the little old lady’s next door. Sigh.

    Good luck folks. I hope this prediction is wrong. I’ll be checking into the Weather Channel this weekend for updates (as will all of you, I am sure).

    Track watching is going to drive y’all crazy, God bless you. It’s gonna swing like, well…I WOULD say the polls, but…HAH!! Don’t wanna jinx THAT!

    Batten down the hatches (once everything’s ready) and drink up, Shriners.

    My best to all of you in the way – and thanks for reposting your advice again – I’ve been sending peeps over to read it. I’ve got co-workers in/around the cone up there. And several of our clients. 🙁

    P.S. I think even the most left of the lefties would like to see Sandy swing to the right…

    Batten down the hatches, boys.

    Bing – Oh. Joy. Looks like it will hit my neighorhood abou12 – 24 hours after you (PA – York area). Here’s a link to the grab ‘n’go info.
    I’m pretty sure we’ll be OK w/ water, but the electricity seems to be pretty sensitive to wind – I expect to be sans juice for a couple of days.

  12. Julie says:

    I’ll be praying for y’all. Just please make sure Claude has a sufficient supply of noms, ok? I’d hate to see the dear boy go hungry.

  13. Donna D. says:

    Bingley and THS, Yup we got canned food, water, and most importantly beer of the husband and the cigarettes for me.

  14. Donna D. says:

    Meant to say beer for the husband.

    Gary — you won’t be able to run both houses on 3.5KW, but you can “time share” the generator on specific appliances, such as the fridge, freezer, etc. “load management” is the phrase; my 10KW generator, which produces 50 amps, won’t run my house, but I can use my breaker box to manage the power load.

    So, all is not lost.
