If I owned a general store and managed to stay open after a disaster like Harvey, I'd charge an arm and a leg for water, too. If I knew people would buy water even at crazy prices, I'd stock the shelves floor to ceiling with as much water as I could get shipped in. Water for everyone! If I had to sell it at a normal price, I wouldn't bother bending over backward to get more, so my stock would run out. No water for anyone.

If I owned Best Buy, though, I think I'd spring for a few water trucks. ;)

Shit is getting real around here. All major stores are sold out of the basic necessities. Gas prices are up .25+ a gallon.

We've got water, propane and hurricane shutters. I just bought a 12kw generator on-line. Let's hope it gets here in time.

Better yet, let's hope this thing turns back into the gulf. :toothy:

Here comes another one...

Quote:
On Tuesday, the National Weather Service reported the storm had become a Category 5 with sustained winds of 185 miles per hour. That means Irma now ranks among the most powerful hurricanes (as measured by windspeed) ever recorded.

It seems like every day a new storm sets records. So predictable. When will the media cover something unusual? :rolleyes:

Lives in hurricane alley and doesn't already own a generator :olo:

Also, hurricane shutters won't do shit for a category 5 hurricane. Basically it's a 100 mile wide EF4 tornado...

Roughly 10 miles from the east coast and 140 miles from the current south Florida impact point. They are saying it could be a Cat 3 by the time it hits us. I'm still hoping it takes a turn back towards the east. :ducky:

I wasn't planning to leave unless it was a Cat 4+.

More good news. My generator shipped yesterday and I should get it by Friday. :up:

Well, things are progressively getting worse. The storm is currently not tracking east enough to prevent eye wall impact and the projected impact speed in my area has been increased to a Cat 4. To top it all off, my generator isn't going to be here either.
