I know I'm ready for whatever happens to upstate NY. 2 generators at standby, one 4KW, the other is an old military unit(12 VDC output now, to run a 400 watt inverter, until I upgrade the inverter). As for the other stuff, I'm basically ready for a complete natural disaster, 4 gallons of water for me, a RO backpacking filter(hand pump system), 2 gallons of kerosene for lanterns, 1 gallon of whitegas for cooking, enough food for 2 weeks, and about 8-9 gallons of gas for generators.
I'm just hoping to not need any of it, and thankfull that it isn't winter(would need more kerosene then to maintain heat).

For those in LI, it probably needs a good washing(joking).

That tells you how big this hurricane is...The center is just passing the Virginia/Delaware border now. That is a long way away still. It's coming.

Gloria was a bit stronger, but it was over in a few hours. This one is going to take it's sweet time....And leave a lot of rain.

My weather station just went off for barometric drop...I have never heard that, even with the blizzards the past few years.

Has gone from 1013.5mb down to 999.2mb in the fast few hours.

And I'm not even close to the coast or the hurricane....It's a big storm.

I'll keep a record just for fun...

Pressure was at 1015.2mb at 6pm.

Now:

Pressure: 999.2mb falling rapidly
Temp: 69F
Humidity: 95%
Max Wind Gust: 26mph East
Rain: 1.12" since 6pm

Just issued a Tornado warning for the adjacent county Fun

You're in my thoughts, guys. Best of luck with your fish and most importantly, stay safe.

I prefer, however, to apply peroxide in a typical spray bottle, squirting it forcefully under the surface of the water into tanks and vats in trouble, I use 60 squirts per 100 gallons. What you will see is the fish will leave the surface, and swim about as if there was no dissolved oxygen deficit. The time for this to occur is approximately one hour. The benefits are seen for a full 4 hours. The hydrogen peroxide to use is drugstore 3% peroxide. It's great in emergencies. If applied directly to the fish, or applied directly to their water in an undiluted form, gill damage could result, so apply it away from the fish.

just thought id post this here!
Great to know! Thanks!

Theoretically they can hit anywhere on the coast and if they are strong enough/big enough they will travel a great distance inward. Florida/the Caribbean gets them alot bc of the warm water and the air currents.... They are in the "sweet spot" so to speak. Conditions are pretty good for hurricanes there.

Now louisiana and the gulf coast get them on occasion when they wander off to the west instead of going their "normal" route. Speeds are increased in the gulf bc of the warm water.

One year in Florida there were 4 hurricanes in the same area in 4 weeks. THAT was rough!

I have lived in both states for 21 years combined.
