Keep some basics on hand.
Tarps for roof damage.
You'll want to pick up a generator (Soon, hurricane season is about to begin and the price will shoot up)
Window unit.
Keep a couple good flashlights on hand.
Some water, and canned foods.
Keep a gallon water jug in the freezer, helps keep shit cold for a few days if you lose power.

Just a few things to get ahead of the panic rush that happens.

Welcome to the thunderdome!

Great tips, especially the ice jug. It really helps.

Also have board games or other stuff to do when you’re bored with no power or internet

Also make sure you have gas cans. The FIRST thing that sells out when a hurricane is on the way is gas cans. If you ever need to leave for a storm, you need extra gas so you don’t run out in the insane traffic. When I left for Hurricane Irma, it took me 7 hours to get from Orlando to Gainesville, which is normally 2hrs 15mins. Took another 6 to get to my folks in Alabama.

Congrats dude. I hope you guys find happiness down there and wish you the best :wub:
I'm homeless as of today, closing on a little :haus: in St Pete next Friday, and hopefully getting our stuff delivered on the following Friday. Currently about to pass out near Harrisburg.
I felt a positive tremor in the Force...... a troymor if you will..... ;)

:Yesth: Everything that people do up here when snow is coming ........plus expect gas lines, and shortages of emergency stuff like flashlights, batteries, bottled water. You'll want a hot plate and an electric fan or two depending on how big a generator you get....

Most hurricanes that hit SoFla while we were there were only inconveniences but a few were a bigger deal......especially WiIma, that bitch has us without power for a week...

Yeah, it's universal.

To add to the other items, beer, lots of beer.
Gas cans was a great suggestion, I have two five-gallon racing cans I use.

The 2005 Atlantic hurricane season had the most major hurricanes on record .... three guesses as to what year we moved there?

Here's wishing you :bender: :alpo: luck Troy ..

Just keep chanting......a bad season in tropical Florida is still better than a good one in upstate fucking NY.....

Sorry, Wake. Fortunately, and I know it's a huge pain in the ass, insurance will take care of all of this.

Skylights smashed along with a couple windows. Siding on one side of the house swiss cheese’d. My dad’s turbo FRS might be totaled. Tennis ball size to maybe even baseball. Their brand new metal roof is dented to shit and probably needs to be replaced too. They need to GTFO of Orange Beach because first Hurricane Sally hit them directly now this? Fuck that.

Ouch, that sucks man, sorry to hear it! At least they are ok, stuff can always be replaced.
