Old man Boyd's roof leaked like a sieve ...He had pots, pans, boilers, buckets, etc everywhere catching the drips when it rained....One day I told him..."Mr Boyd, ya need to get your roof fixed" ....Can't do that boy....."Why not I asked" It's raining outside
...I said..."I mean when it quits raining and the sun is shining"....Hit don't leak then boy
The time to prepare for a Hurricane, Tropical Storm, Tornadoes etc, is when there's 3 feet of snow on the ground...The time to prepare for a big snow/winter storm, or Nor Easter is when it's 98 degrees outside.
Can't say enough about Generators...I own three...A small one for short outages of just a few hours...A large one that hooks to the house...for long term outages. Another one just for the fun of it...
If you are so situated that you can own a Generator, then by all means have gas to run them.,..a lot of gas!!! ~~ Gas supply's can't get critical to non existent ~~ During Katrina there was no Gas to be had here....10's of thousands of gallons in the ground, but no way to pump it out....(There ought to be a law!!!)
Have/Create a Cool or Warm Zone in your house....Kerosene Heaters work well for Heat Zones (Or Natural Gas Heaters)....Room/Window A/C units work well for a Cool Zone.
Ice .you can't have to much in hot weather....I've seen men fight over a 10lb bag of ice....Pull guns over 5 gallons of gas......
Oh well, just a few tips....Maybe more later.
