It's still to early to accurately predict, but according to the current maps and models, which are subject to change, we're pretty much at ground zero. As it gets nearer I plan to move the Airstream out from under the huge pine trees to another property where there is a clearing. I'll prep the generators, and get more fuel. Other than that, business as usual.

Good luck SliverRanger, fingers crossed storm lets up by the time it reaches Delaware. We're watching intently, with a family house a block from the beach in Southern RI.

Wherever you go, there you are

Going north of us

We're hunkered down here in Virginia Beach, but from the look of the latest models, we're going to miss the brunt of the storm. We'll undoubtably get some very high winds on Sunday during the later hours, but that and some high water should be it.

I feel for everyone North of us. Watch out for storm surge - that wind going into the NJ/NYC notch - coupled with a full moon and high tide - will be terrible. How far inland is probably less important than how HIGH above sea level you are. And the winds? Trees will be coming down by the hundreds.

NOW would be a real good time to find covered storage in an industrial park/storage center. (One local outfit here is offering a 14' high door 50 ft long unit for the duration of the storm for $25 NICE GUY!)

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

We thought about putting the Safari into storage, but I'd rather have it to make things more comfy if we lose power for a while. Playing the odds, but it's not parked under a tree...

This is totally bizarre! I just tried to go to the FNMOC/public weather site to find::!!
A) It's content is drastically reduced due to some "robot" deal.
B) My original post starting this thread is 3rd in line under FNMOC/public site!!

I would kindly ask a moderator how this could happen.

I mean, if I post something like my last thread about the "goodbye skylight hello hatch" does it find it's way to some where on the web talking about skylights and hatches? I'm ok with that....But to place my comments right next to a highly effective and important Govt. Web site just gives me the creeps.
I'm sure glad I was "moderate" in my opinion (based on 28 years at sea) and called it a forecast model by the Navy....not me.
By the way: what I could ascertain by the latest map is that (at this time of they're forecast model) is that the worst of the storm may end up a little North of Long Island but that "brunt" involves 30' seas. Look out Maine and R.I. and Maritimes of Canada.
