.50 Cal ammo cans should be water tight and hold a lot of knives. Good idea Waz.

Good luck Wazu. Been a while since I saw the pickup truck lines completely circling Home Depot for plywood, but I know the feeling. I do not know where you are in Florida, but I guess it will be a long Sunday there.

I have 20MM cans. They're great. Neoprene seals and nice and heavy. We're as ready as we can be. We have hurricane windows and a reinforced garage door. Now it's time to see how all the prep holds up :)

I'm in Dunedin which is a little north of Clearwater on the Gulf. My house is sitting 36' above sea level. Fingers crossed, we should be above the surge.

Stay safe over there Wazu. I'm about 20 miles inland from Tampa Bay, and we are gonna ride the storm out at home. We are praying for the best for you folks along the coast.

We just finished with our Indian Summer in the 80's and muggy. Tonight we'll be in the low 50's with highs only in the low 60's for the foreseeable future.____Dave

Franklin County Florida. The north west panhandle... HOT!
Hot yesterday, and every yesterday before that. HOT tonight, and every night before this.

I forgot to mention MUGGY! 90% every day from the dawn of time.

Hot, and Muggy! Time for a Black Duck, and Coke. ::super_happy::

100 proof coconut, banana spiced Rhum. ::super_happy::

It's named after the boat of the only rum runner in New York state history that was on the FBI Most Wanted List.
The "Black Duck" was built by Paul Scoponoich in Greenport Long Island. The same boat yard that built the Coast Guard boats made to catch her... ::hmm::

GOOD stuff.

We're getting ready for Hurricane Nate to arrive sometime tonight. Weather Channel is predicting it will become a Cat 2 storm
