    Default If they've got Bill wrong, I'm dead

    The weather forecasters keep saying that the 125 mph hurricane, affectionately named "Bill", that appears to be heading straight for the East Coast, near which I live in the Great Nation's Capital, is going to do a last minute u-ey and save us all.

    They might get it wrong.

    If you do not hear from me on Monday then you can fear the worst.

    And you West Coast fellas can start expanding your yards eastwards.

    I hope thay are not Bill sh!tting me.



    Time to bury the power lines.

    Fortunately I have a Zoeller sump pump and GFCI receptacles which should protect me in the event Bill makes a head on to my house.

    If it strengthens to a Category 4, I may need to consider a Zoeller Aquanot II. But let's not jump the gun.

    Jesus, not you too Scuba Dave?

    Come Monday there might not be any DIYers left on this site!

    Just a bunch of West Coast Plumbers and a handful of other remodeling professionals that came here by mistake while looking for the NACHI forum.

    My cat is hiding under the table, going to be a big one.

    Don't be such a wuss Ian. I had a strong cat 4 within spitting distance from my house. You take sensible precautions and hunker down for an hour or two. For the most part anyway.

    I'm ready to throw all the pool furniture into the pool
    Learned that from Florida friends

    Just hoping my cupola & new roof are OK
    Waiting on my fake slate to finish the roof
    Picked up a nice weathervane to go up there too

    I had a tornado right down on top of me in Al, McFarland blvd... always new trees, new buildings, couldn't figure it out right away, lol, until... the first one struck.

    Then, 4 more...

    Storms scare the heck out of most people, and I am one of them!

    But, they always pass. No worries mate.
