      FL Hurricane Prep

      Lotsa ammo in case SHTF? Check.
      Gas for the grill so I can cook stuff I have to shoot? Check.
      Extra ice to keep beer cold? Check.
      Extra water in case Mom comes by? Check.
      Plenty of beer to keep the ice busy? Check.
      Vodka in case the beer gets warm? Check.
      Chlorine for the pool incase power goes out and pump won't run? Check.

      Okay, I'm ready...

      You need to have your blue tarp ready in case of roof damage and practice your "hunker down" technique.

      Put my widow panels up last night and fired up the old genrator and got 15gals of fresh gas for it. Were ready for about a week or more. Plenty of ammo and I can make more in a heart beat.

      Lotsa??? Well, it'a long way til election day, so "lotsa" is actually my standard stash...

      Let's see:
      3 mags full of 45ACP Hornaday TAP, and a few loose spares.

      3 Mags full of 9mm Federal Hydrashocks, and a few loose spares.

      I'm guessing 250-275 rounds of WWB FMJs (mostly 9mm variety) I haven't been to the range yet to shoot (good "hunting rounds" should the Tropical Storm now dumping 4-6" or rain MILES south of me decides to man up...)

      Oh yeah a few mags of .380, and the rest of a box of Golden Sabers,

      Maybe 200 rounds of 22LR from a 550 round box...

      About 25 rounds of Fiochi Low Recoil 00 Buck for the 870...

      50 rounds of Remington .308 (I think lead-nosed-boat-tailed-spitzers) for the Ruger M-77


      Should keep me looter-free, with a fridge-full of squirel meat, should civilization cease to exist after this little 24-hr-rain-shower.

      Heh, that's about what I have on hand right now, except 9mm (have a bunch left over from Gunsite). 'Course we don't get many tropical storms in Phoenix.

      Okay... the "real" rain just started in Orlando... Swimming pool (non-screen enclosed) is about 2 inches from the top edge.

      Pool-watch 2008 has started...

      Any guesses on how long it will take before my pool rises 2" to over flowing?

      Current time-stamp: 4:44pm.

      My guess? 7:00pm (a little less than an inch an hour)

      I'm in for 4:58pm.

      I really hope the storm isn't too bad, got a few friends out there, not too close to affected areas, but still.

      I hope your pool doesn't become infested with pool Zomb.... nevermind hehe.

      5-gallons of extra chlorine.... All I need is a super-soaker...

      Nah... 870 w/ 00 Buck...

      But the chlorine works well for algae when the pump is out for a week...

      LOL

      Zombie-algae...

      If you have any Helmets (motorcycle type) keep them close in case of Tornado's. We survived the 1979 Tornado in Wichita Falls, Texas and have first hand knowledge what flying bricks, 2x4's etc. can do.

      Stay safe.

      You too Baldy and any others out there.

      I've got a nice black Shoei full face brain bucket in the garage...

      But I think it's a waste... kinda dissapointing... Everything passed south of me so far. A solid SPRINKLE of rain so far. Maybe a 1/2 inch in the pool...

      Oh well, unless she turns hard north, I may have to water the lawn this week!!!

      18-pack of Miller Lite in the fridge... That won't go to waste...

      lol

      Another false alarm

      Been down here in Fla for about 15 years. Each year the weather forecasters predict doom and gloom. I for one have stopped listening to them. It's a case of let's use all this expensive equipment the station has, predict where it will make landfall, where it will go and how powerful it will be. And keep our fingers crossed we don't make fools of ourselfs because we really don't have a clue what the storm will do. Also let's hope all the viewers forgot how bad we were last " hurricane season". Now they claim this one will go out to the Atlantic and curve back to hit Fla again as a hurricane, PLEASE. If this prediction does not come thru I will personally go the the TV station and till them where they can shove thier dopler.

      Yeah, TV always wants the S to HTF. Better ratings that way, and the reporters can get on national TV showcasing their incredible bravery standing in the wind and rain.

      And everyone on the internet definitely wants the S to HTF...for various reasons, few of them good. But if it's an excuse to buy a case of beer, I fully support it!

      Fay has almost stalled on top of us. It nice out there with a mist of rain and no sun. About 85 degrees. Winds are mild. Not bad right now.
