    I do hope my friends on the east coast come through this hurricane safely. Regardless what the predicitons are, we really don't know what will happen until it does. And I'm pretty sure that Irene hasn't registered to vote.

    I recall Ike which downgraded as he came ashore, then upgraded and came straight for Kentucky. There was a lot of destruction here in the wake of Ike, but where I sit on the side of a hill, all the winds just went over me. I was flabberghasted at what I saw in his aftermath, and didn't even know we could get hurrianes like that inland.

    Perhaps the bickering can stop for a while. I just want my friends there to be safe and likely won't hear directly from them for a day or two.

    Thanks. I have secured everything outside and have plenty of booze and a generator. Should be OK. Tomorrow I move all the valuables (guns) into the basement.

    That sounds like a plan.

    That would be fantastic !! as I really can't afford getting siding and the roof repaired, the chainsawing and tree removal, several days of power outage and other vehicle and property damage. Guess I should sleep easy tonight, huh?

    I, too, am sending my best wishes to those along the east coast. I'm hoping the media hype is, as usual, overblown (pun intended! :D ) and none of your friends or family suffers any significant damage.

    Leaving nothing to chance, I'm also sending my good thoughts and best wishes... so y'all should be fine! ;)
