this will give you a basic overview. You'll want to contact Eurofighter for more specs on what everything needs to be during the rebuild.

Here's another basic image of what you're in for:

Let me know how it turns out! I hear they're a blast to fly!

\I'd follow hurricane rules: hide from wind, run from water
\\be safe out there

Find a cement apartment building and hang out in the stair well above the fifth floor. Watch the show for as long as it's safe though, the higher off the ground the better, because you'll have some great stories to tell.

Survived Iniki, my second of three hurricanes and that was only a cat 4. Watching a washing machine (I think) fly by the window, 7th floor, isn't something I saw every day. Watching a car float into the side of an apartment building is surreal. Watching trees become projectiles got me into the stair well.

Stockpile essentials. Don't expect power for a while...or police.

1. Keep your pants on while sitting in slatted chairs.

2. Make sure you have a large plastic tub handy for gathering beers after the storm passes.

3. Stay away from patio furniture. It has a tendency to tip over during sever storm events.

1) LED flashlights, fresh batteries. Weather radio or regular radio.
2) Spare power source for cellphone.
3) Do all laundry, and wash all dishes. Then shower right before the storm. Shut off gas or electric water heater and close inlet (some will allow drainage via spigot at bottom of unit. Get a bunch of drinking water in bottles and such. Keep bathtub water for flushing toilet and light bathing if needed.
4) Prepare a cooler with sandwiches, lots of ice, and stuff you would like to save from your fridge. I also kept a bunch of 2-liter bottles of ice in the freezer and that worked pretty well. Just don't fill them ALL the way up before freezing. Keep a small grill, charcoal, and fluid handy. Be responsible about grilling (don't be an r-tard). kool-aid mix goes a long way as well. hand cranked CAN OPENER!
5) Have grass, cash, and gas handy. Beer can be used with - or substituted for - grass. Cash is handy, gas goes in the car.
6) Disposable camera, and maybe a digital camera so that you can document the events. Makes for fun.
7) Board games or playing cards. CoD won't work when there is no electric.
8) A boat. You might need one.
9) If you have the luxury then have a gun, small generator (around 3500w max will do quite well), window fan or small window A/C, and small TV. I did this during Francis and Jean and it worked out great. Only used about 4 gallons of gas/day total. Being efficient keeps you from having to sit in long lines waiting for gas.

/hope this helps

OR you could book a room in Atlanta.

In which case you will definitely need the gun.

For some reason I first read the headline as "Subby's going on his honeymoon tomorrow and needs advice". So, maybe the advice would be the same.
