It sure looks like were gonna take a hit from this storm.
Haven’t got my home repaired from the hail storm we had in April.
They are supposed to start on Monday, but with a potential major hurricane possibly affecting us on Wed.
I don’t want to have part of the work done, & have a storm hit us.
So far we have a new roof on the house, minus the gutters, but the siding, aluminum roof over the carport, patio, & lanai are what they need to replace next. Nothing is leaking now, ( I just wish I had a gutter on the side of the house), so if this thing is headed our way I don’t want to have them start this until the storm has passed. However, the path may change between now & Monday. Boy I sure hope it just turns east & heads out over the Atlantic. All of us in the Southeast need be hoping the same thing!

Good Luck Al, it does look like it took a southerly turn a bit making it worse. Also "heard" it is a cat 5 offshore. Stay safe and let us know how you (and everyone here) fared?

From media reports, the various power companies are staging work trucks.

During Sandy, we (161ARW in Phoenix, AZ) were loading Salt River Project and Arizona Public Service trucks and equipment on C-17s to help out with the rebuilds and repairs. At the same time our KC-135's were flying evacuees and pets out of the way. The coordination of these efforts is of amazing.

So far so good, hopefully I will be on in the morning saying all is well! If not it’s because I don’t have cell service or internet.
