I went to Academy Sports and bought a nice 12x12 EZUP for 80 dollars. I don't sweat the weather anymore.

We'll be getting hit by the same Nor'Easter. I don't know if I would trust an EZ up in this type of storm. That is if the weathermen are right.
I don't know if this is an option for you, but this is my plan, and I'll be using a UDS. The weather is supposed to be decent Monday and Thursday. I'm smoking my ham Monday and will reheat Thursday. I'm going to smoke the Turkey Thursday morning.
I hope this is somewhat helpful.
