I can remember Hugo. Where I live Hugo was not suppose affect us. But little did we know that spin off tornadoes would be devastating.

Florence is set to do the same thing from predictions.

As far as our sheds go, our faith is in the Lord and the Builder.  ;D
We worked today moving things one wouldn't even thinking about.

My Dad sells Gourds and has a pile of them....we got them in the shed.
Even though my mill is under a shed with 2 open sides, I'll put a piece of plywood against the radiator and cover and tie down a cover over the engine.
Chairs on my deck at the mill will be put up.
The fridge I have setting at the mill will go in the block building.
Setting backhoe buckets on top of stacked lumber.
Today we cleaned culverts out and I took the dozer and build some water bars.
I know I'll forget something but we're trying. 
The older I get I wish my body could Re-Gen.

You can never do enough to prepare, and then there is an aftermath.  We had two in a row, Rita and Ike, we had just cleaned up from Rita when Ike hit, after Rita I bought a stand alone generator and it got us through Ike a little easier.  Still, thank God for neighbors, and for the local government, it took weeks for the feds to come in.

Keep the faith, brothers and sisters.

My inlaws have 2 homes on Ocean Isle Beach, NC, and are full time residents...they are moving just across the ICWW to some friends house to "ride it out"  ::)...my Wife is freaking out about that.  But I said...we got too much to worry about here, I dont have time to worry about stupid people :D (harsh, but the truth).  Their excuse is, it takes too long to get back on the island after the storm... ::)  Not going to matter much with 20' to 30' storm surge, and 130 mph winds.  The governor of NC said today this is going to be a historic storm of catastrofic proportions...he also said the ones that stay are the ones you read about in the papers after its all said and done...I just don't get it ::)

Don't forget the bottled water, Gatorade, a generator battery, and for those who don't yet have one a generator!!!  Walking by the egg coolers I was pretty amazed.  Not sure why folks suddenly need to eat so many eggs!!

I eat at least 4 eggs a day...low carb, high protein. Gatorade is not as healthy as you think, opt for the water

Yes - but you don't suddenly eat 36 just because of a storm.

All of my equipment is now out of reach (hopefully) of trees. I'll add the truck later. The sawhead is strapped to the trailer and tractor arch.

    Before you evacuate remember the old trick to freeze a cup of water and put a coin or washer on top. If you get back and the coin is still on top the power has not been off long enough to melt anything and food in the freezer is good. If it is on the bottom the power was off and everything thawed then re-froze and food likely no good and unsafe to eat. If in the middle the power was off and things partially thawed but may still be okay.
