Down in Homestead we got a little rain, and thats it, barely any wind. Say a prayer for the Bahamas, they got it really bad.

I'm so glad I moved off LI.....

If it goes over NYC, it's going to make a mess

Last hurricane to directly hit NYC....1821. No subways, tunnels, electric, etc.

Plus, there is a new moon on the 28th so tides will be higher than normal to begin with....

Does anyone know what Monday is? The answer is a little spooky

I'm in Hampton, VA with no generator. I'm hoping my tank will be stable enough without power for (what I'm estimating to be) a week or more.

[Moderator edit]. There probably aren't any extension cords left in all of Hampton Roads either. The stores are bare.

I'm thinking I'll be okay. My temp shouldn't get too low and I can easily keep it from getting too hot and I'll do water changes if need be.

Just make sure to agitate the water every so often ,if you lose power of course.
Good luck this weekend

I'm in norfolk va. I bought some
Battery powered air pumps. The batteries cost twice as much as they did Lowes and Walmart both had no batteries whatsoever but the only thing I'm worried about is no heater on my discus tank.

I have one of those battery powered air pumps that turn on automatically if power is lost. If it hits us here on long island hard, I expect to be very busy and not home. Good luck to all in the path.

Remember Gloria? That was similar in strength and we lost power for almost 2 weeks.

The ground is saturated already, and there is another 6"-12" of rain on the way....Timber!
