Yep.  I meant to fire up the generator this last weekend.  I need to do it soon...and order backup parts.

Feels like we've been hit numerous times, but the last hurricane to make landfall in CT was Gloria. 1985

At the rate that these "once in a century" storms keep occurring, we shouldn't have another big hurricane for at least a few thousand years.

Anyone follow spagettimodels.com?    I feel like dude went from useful resource to "they are all kill storms and you will choke on your own blood and die" click bait last year.

So now Dr. Cohen @ tropicaltidbits twitter is my storm guy.

1. Prepare an evacuation plan
2. Have a go-kit ready
3. Use a checklist to make sure you don't forget anything in the stress of the moment
4. If your resources are tight, be creative and seek help now to be ready
5. Take the threat seriously

We are royally screwed when the hurricanes realize they can team up with the Natural Disasters. The intercontinental tag team championship will never be pried from them.

/CSB
When I worked at ahuge data center, every month, they'd fire up the generator.  One day, a big storm went through and knocked out the power.  The generator fired up and ran for about 30 minutes until it ran out of diesel.
Oh no.  The person responsible was well connected so no careers were ended.

I'm safe here. I got a sharpie to redirect any bad weather.
 
2022-06-01 11:05:56 AM  
First thing I do is fill my two spare 5 gallon gas cans. Gas stations can run dry days before a storm actually arrives.

Also, from now till end of year I never let my tank go below half full.

It'd be nice if they could predict earthquakes a couple of days ahead of time, so people could bug out. It's kind of scary to think that a 9.0 earthquake could hit the Cascadia subduction zone any time. At least you get some warning with hurricanes.

It's not the hurricane you have to worry about- it's the insurance companies and crooked-ass contractors during the recovery process that are the real disaster.

Tomatoes and peppers due well on my windowsill. Everything from squash to cattle fair quite well just an hour drive or 4 hour bike upstate.

Before there was interstate commerce to the the shiatty Midwest did you you think the Natives and my ancestors just starved to death every year? We will be fine without your corn syrup mines while you eat dust.

Second home is in Hudson valley, fam lives there. Never been mugged. Also live in the most diverse zip code in the USA. Probably the world. Right in the middle of little Pakistan (great barbers and food) little Israel (good delis, and big hats if you're into that) little Caribbean (also great food) also some great 2nd generation pizza from Italy, some Korean and Chinese food (and liquor). 15 minute bike ride to one of the most curated and beautiful parks in any city. 30 minute subway ride to every concert, museum, restaurant or theater you'd ever want. Maybe stop crapping yourself and live a little

Fine fine. We'll double up on the sex0r during the winter months.

What's that? Twice as many nor'easters predicted this year?

No.  I have permanent liver damage from those things I think.  When someone I was with kept handing them to me after a single drink because "it's warm".  It still had ice.  She was trying to kill me.  I was so drunk I didn't see the stripper sitting on my lap.

Rubbish. Tell that to the people who lost their homes to Sandy.

Or are you referring to the insurance loophole of declaring the devastation as the results of a Tropical Storm rather than a Hurricane, to avoid all those high deductibles.

Just get home within the 5-7 day window the weather report gives and you're ok. Oh, and don't live on a beach. But you deserve what you get in either of those scenarios
