From the size of it on my computer screen...I even put some tiedowns on my trees.

I hope some of you guys tied styrofoam to the pots, cause it looks like the water may be waaaay deep.

Hope this passes like a ghost in the night.

Brought all trees in for a couple of days. Looks like it will come north to my west, probably over NY state but with its size I should get lots of wind and rain.... Will keep the board posted

Safe here in Massachusetts but that can't be said about people south of me. It's not how are you fall it's about how quick you get up and in times like this this great nation of ours comes together and repairs what is damaged and helps who's in need. May this be a swift and speedy recovery

Hubris seems to be an appropriate hide behind. When we get Hurricanes with southern targets I will be sure to inform you of our weather. Cheers.

Hubris ( /?hju?br?s/), also hybris, from ancient Greek Huh???, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.

A couple of years ago we (in SC) had 4 named storms blow through in one month (or maybe 5-6 wks).  I'd just put out seed for a new lawn.  Years ago Hugo ravaged our state from the beach, through the midlands, and then headed north through the upstate.  I was out of school for a little bit, though the coastal schools essentially had to end their year because of it.

We get our share.  Living 5 hours from the coast is usually sufficient buffer, but on rare occasions the storm makes its way here.
