They say if you can live in New Jersey you can live anywhere. We get a little of everything. .... Battening down the hatches, gens are fueled and ready, plenty of wine, beer and oh some water and food too. We have been here over 50 years ... I think we'll ride this one out too.
I'm hoping everyone else along the coast will do whatever they have to and stay safe. Think I'll keep my 2¢ this time .... I may need it, Hank

Joe, Sure do wish I was at Nikomis beach now.

We need the rain

If you get more of the wet stuff than you can handle send some out west to Texas and New Mexico. Here at my house we've only had a slight, almost semi trace of rain since last October. No kidding on this one. Wish you folks on the east coast the best of luck and be safe.

We weathered quite a few hurricanes near Ft Lauderdale while I lived there all my life, until recently.

We used to pull our fifth wheel between the two houses. Slides in, unplugged everything and hoped for the best.

Never a problem with the RV - but trees down, pool area caved in and no power off and on for a week or two at a time. But the RV survived!!

Jo

I feel your pain - hope ALL are okay who are in path of the storm!

We're in PA just over the border from Jersey, about an hour north of Philly, so we're bracing for it here too. We live on a hill next to a field which the winds usually come over and our rig is parked right next to it, so there is nothing breaking the wind before it gets to it. It's really the only place that it can be parked that isn't near trees, as everything else is wooded. Slides are in, it's unplugged, stabilizers down, but my husband is still contemplating hooking up the truck for some extra stability. All we can do at this point is be glad we have insurance and hope and pray for the best!

From what I have seen the main problem inland is usually the heavy rain that comes with these storms. Keeping the trailer away from large trees may be more important then protecting from wind. In any case good luck and stay safe, Hank

Sunday morning 10:00 ... still raining and a little windy but the worst is over. Cougar is fine, so is stick house, no leaks or damage other than a few shrubs torn out of the ground. I hope everyone else did as well. Guess I'll go out and clean up a little. You folks in New England hang in there, Hank

We dodged a bullet here in Southeastern MA. Minimal rain and moderate winds. Lots around us are still without power. But my Laredo did just fine, no damage.
