I'd still fill the tub, you could end up with some dead animal or something else in your pool that would make you not want to use that water at all.

Glad to hear you didn't suffer any serious issues. You are close enough to the coast to have been a vet of any number of them twisters. Maybe once it hits Nags it'll spin back out to sea.. We can hope....

My son and grandson just went down to the beach to check out the remnants of Irene off of the Grand Strand.

Does this look like a Hurricane has been here?

Huricane irene

Here in Babylon Long Island, winds are 10-15 mph, and rain off-on since noon. Eye expects to cross the island around noon tomorrow (Sunday). Last cat 1 to hit here was Gloria. No electric for 12 days. Prepared now with 38' in drieway with 80 gallons of fresh water!! Gloria desimated the south shore. Trees cut emergency access along with tearing down power, phone and cable lines. Last time power was lost, was checking TV in RV and county ex was on. Always wondered who he thought was talking to as there was no power anywhere on Long Island??

For communications, you need to get to know a friendly ham radio operator. Most have some sort of emergency power set up and will be able to communicate.

We live in southern CT several hundred yards from Long Island Sound. The marsh wraps around the side of our neighborhood so flooding during the storm surge is possible. We took the RV, dogs and car inland about 10 miles earlier today when evacuation was recommended. Many neighbors were planning on staying in spite of predicted 4' to 8' storm surge during high tide tomorrow morning. The news media are now saying evacuations are mandatory, not sure if the neighbors will leave. The old timers feel that if the surge is less than 6' we should be "OK", above that, the house could get flooded. Raining now, but not windy at all . . . we'll see what tomorrow will bring???

Still waiting here, the rain has been heavy at times but not much wind yet. Looks like a direct hit here but Long Island should slow it down a bit.

I don't think it's your computer, mine has been very bad the last two days also. The overall system (web) is probably being overloaded. (or maybe it is just a west coast thing)

We are still having wind gust and pouring rain,power went out at 5 a.m. this morning,heard that 98% of our county is without power and with a lot of trees down no telling when we will get it back. We lost 3 big pines in the back yard,have some damage to the garage,out building and the rv shelter. Thank goodness the rv is up between the house and detached garage and so far it and the house seem to be ok. Its still raining too hard to get out for a through check over. Anyone need any nice fresh pine wood,come and get it!

Ya'll stay safe, please.

With the huge amount of people just sitting home, I'm not surprised that the circuits, both telephone and internet are clogged. Happens around here also.

Here in Texas, mandatory evacuation means they will not send any help should things come to worse so don't expect being rescued. The cannot force anyone to leave their homes. I'm no idiot, I leave 72 hours before landfall, mandatory or not.
