I filled up my gas tanks and tied down a few things but aside from trying to calm down my wife and kids there's really not much else to do. It's amazing how much hype the media is giving this, I think it's way overdone. I did buy a couple extra bags of ice in case we lose power but most importantly I just got done steaming a bushel of crabs and iced down the beer!
I don't have a generator yet but I have a good inverter that I can tap into my boats battery supply if I need to run my coffee maker or something small. I've been holding off getting a generator because I really want to get one that runs off natural gas that I can supply from my main then connect directly into my circut breaker to power the essentials in the house but for the few times we really need it I just can't seem to justify doing it. We'll see, maybe this one will push me over the edge.
Hunker down and be safe everyone!
