…..they used to 'seed' these hurricanes with iodine pellets back in the 60's to break them up.  Why don't they still do that? Undecided 

Remember Florida Congressman Claude Pepper?  In the late 40's he proposed using an atomic bomb to stop a hurricane.  Wow, that would do it, and would create a glowing super-hurricane.

It's coming my way!  It's not coming my way.  It's coming my way!  It's not coming my way. 

The forcasters can't make up their minds.  So, I am going to sit here.  If it comes this way, I will go outside and give it the finger.  If it doesn't, then I bought a bunch of booze for nothing!

Humor folks!!!

I am so sick of everytime there is bad weather the World is Ending.
Listen!!!! If you want to live in low lying areas along the coast or even below sea level at that life stinks for you. MOVE!
I grew up a mile from the ocean and as I got older worked in homes within feet of the water that were wiped out regularly! Then BILLIONS of my  tax money goes to rebuild homes I could never dream of living in.
Stop all BUILDING within 2 miles of High Tide. THE END!


WRAP YOUR PIPES!!!!! Then go buy lots of milk, bread and toilet paper. Don’t know what you will do with them but oh well......

Bread and milk are two of the most stupid food items to buy before a storm. The milk will sour and the bread will mold. What you buy are all sorts of canned goods, crackers, granola bars, peanut butter and bottled water. You buy the type of things you would take camping for goodness sake.

Not for me. I have 10 HP gasoline generator that I connect to a sub panel that powers nine 120 volt circuits (for two refrigerators and one freezer, and microwave, fish aquariums,, basic lighting and receptacles, emergency 5K BTU window A/C, etc.), and a 240 circuit for my well pump.

I learned my lesson long ago when I lost a stocked 20 CF freezer and refrigerator from hurricanes. A year ago yesterday I lost power for 5 days from Hurricane Irma. I would have been dead in the water without my generator and gas grill.

Still, I had to use my generator sparingly, lest I run out of gasoline, as all the gas stations ran out of gas.

But to your point, if you don't have a generator -- stocking up on milk or things that require refrigeration is an exercise in futility.

Why would you wrap the pipes?  We here in Chicagoland may do that to prevent freezing and bursting.  We also may open cabinet doors (where there are faucets above) to allow some heat to reach pipes.  The other thing is leaving water trickling so it doesn't sit in pipes and freeze.  But that is for super cold weather.

I don't understand why you would wrap pipes here!

I wouldn't want to stock up on cold stuff.  You might lose it.  Canned food and stuff not needing refrigeration (like peanut butter) would be better.  And a manual can opener!
