Florida and gulf folks, you ready for Gustav ?
 
UGH! I am not in the mood for this!

Are you prepared? I think we are pretty set here! Need to check a few things tomorrow like propane and gas, but other than that, I think we have everything we need to make it through a storm.

Are you ready?

ConcKahuna 08-16-2008 09:58 AM

I need batteries for my flashlight, but otherwise we're GTG. I doubt it's going to be much for anyone not on the coast though.

OrlandoMike 08-16-2008 10:00 AM

Ya, remember Charlie?

"You in Orlando are fine, it's gonna hit Tampa!" :laughing:

Hey, I lost cable for about an hour with Charlie, and that was the extent of my damage. :rotfl:

Of course I was in Ft. Lauderdale for Andrew, so I've seen a real hurricane :scared1:

We moved here in May of 2004, so our first experience with hurricanes was Charlie, Frances, & Jean.

We're still newbies enough that we check and restock the hurricane kit on June 1st each year. I think we're pretty much set. I filled up the gas tank on my car before going in for surgery on Thursday, and having been on pain pills since, haven't driven, so it's still a full tank. I'll just need to remember to hit an ATM for cash and I'm good.

I need to fill up the water jugs, the water in them is a few months old. We are set on propane, gas, and canned goods. Guess a bottle of bourbon may come in handy! :confused3

Now lets sit back and watch the "unprepared" freak out on Monday and Tuesday when the gas stations run out of gas! :lmao:

That's not emergency supplies! That's a staple! :rotfl:

The bar at home is always fully stocked, and since we've been stocking up for the Hospitality Suite prior to "Our Big Fat Gay Disney Wedding" we've got plenty of booze. (No room left in the wine cabinet. I guess we'll have to drink some soon. ;) )

You guys stay safe whatever you do.
I'll keep you all in my thoughts.
Rob, you'll be wearing a pink wig and a mini skirt. (hey! it's my thoughts..I can dress you however I want!)

Okay then.

In that case, you'll be dressed in a hot, heavy, restraining nun's outfit. :rotfl2:

rosiep 08-16-2008 12:15 PM

yikes! The nun stuff ok....but please no hot and heavy. It's been over 100 degrees for two days here in Portland (I hate, hate, hate hate hate the heat)

You win, I'll be good. I'll dress you in a nice crisp white tennis outfit...I may even let you wear shorts instead of the skirt

So ConcK, are you on the ride out crew? I'm not, but I do work on Wednesday, so I'm a little concerned at the possibility that I may get stuck there for a while.pirate:

:surfweb:

Oh, I hope you FL folks are all stocked up and ready to weather the storm. Hopefully, it's just going to be more of a rain event than an emergency event.

It's good to know that most of you are stocked up and ready for whatever Fay decides to dish out. Hang in there and let us know how you are. :grouphug:
