nah, its about the right height, but I dont think Ill be sliding any plywood sheets onto the trunk of the car anytime soon.
First time in years I had to move everything in shop so I can fit car inside.
This hurricane has already shut down all the schools here for tomorrow, the subways, buses will shut down at 7 pm tonight, meaning noone on Long Island is going to work tomorrow.(ofcourse, the untility and emergency personel will have to go in)
And I just heard once the winds reach 60 mph, they are shutting down all the bridges, bringing the entire big apple, and all the burbs, to a complete transit nightmare.
The local county executive announced people living in designated flood zones(unfortunately, I live in a flood zone)should consider leaving for higher ground. I live approx 2 miles from the ocean, but the house was built in late 40s, and never ever have we had flooding problems.
So I cleaned up anything laying around, took in all the halloween lawn decor, secured the carport, took down the top(wasnt going too, but finally broke down and did it), ratched down the piping, and now Im just waiting on the winds and water surge to see how much damage.
I have little faith in weathermen, I find them close to terrorists,weather terrorists, trying to scare everyone, not warn, scare, but my wife feels they are in cahoots with the supermarkets as the markets were so packed the last couple of days, totally ridiculous. We dont live in a rural area.
We have chinese takeout on every corner, and they never close. EVER!
Im confident, if we were victims of nuclear attack, only bacteria and chinese takeout would survive.
but, Im ready for the storm, and probably will lose my power sometime tomorrow.
I have no generator, so if the power is out more than 2 days, Im outta here.
Good luck to all up and down the east coast who dont need this headache.
And worst of all, I have hundreds of little toys and 50 lbs of candy for the kids on halloween, but it looks like there will be no halloween, and I cant eat the stuff.
