Update on evac
Tue Sep 11, 2018 10:58

Spoke to Heather this morning, decided to leave evacuation until tomorrow as that gives her time to go shopping and do other things perhaps because we're coming to stay.

I'm probably going to put my plywood squares up to cover the living room windows though its arguable if the back ones arent in more danger but then if a tree comes down we're screwed and the ply wont be much help.

Stuff is probably more likely to come at us from wherever the wind has the most chance to blow hard and thats the front for sure. Well I'm still not sure this is such a good idea plus its a real slog but better safe than sorry?

If the bastard comes up the Bay its the storm surge that I most worry about. Spoke to Kelly, her mums place is waterfront right opposite the gap where the creek entrance leads in from the Bay. She said she'll pop the animals in her truck and get the hell out of dodge if it looks like a storm surge is coming.

Probably go to Nandua H.S. if she can get out 'cos theres a few dips that flood regularly and if it was me I'd head for the local fire house but she's a solid lass and knows her way around.

          ...rather than the fear-mongering trollops in sheaths on the Weather Channel, since NOAA is where WC and everyone else gets the nugget of info they then blow all into a great faff and fear exercise... more

            I agree about NOAA.I have it on my computer and it has been much more accurate than others. One of the local TV stations in Savannah seems to use NOAA also.
          • Thanks very useful - mike, Tue Sep 11 20:26
            All day long I've been telling her that the media always exaggerate and cannot be trusted because they think 'the story' matters more than the truth. I even found the latest maps and pointed out that ... more
