Hell, I've lived here since 1996. I prev ignored hurricanes in the 1990s - as I felt I was inland enough. They seem to be stronger lately, and I saw what Rita did pretty far inland. Hopefully it changes paths a little again...
I'm kind of surprised that there isn't more traffic. They are ordering evac of the coastal counties. Maybe things will stack up as people get off of work. We are closing tomorrow so I have to shut down all the servers and workstations tonight.
Hey ship, you need to get a generator. I have a 7000 BTU Generator that powers the 2 Refer/freezers and the rest of the house. The only thing I can't run is the Washer and Dryer. Loosing all your freezer food during a power outage sucks.
Just a thought from a guy that lived in Guam, where the power went out for 2 weeks at a time.
