What does Frankie say?
"Get your pizzas, get your Chinese food, get 2 cases of pop! Be prepared!"
Should I charge my ipads and iphones?
Fun fact: Donair is an anagram of Dorian.
buy bottled of water and chips
I have to say this is one aspect of living in the Maritimes I don't miss. Good luck all!
Meanwhile, I have an insurance inspector coming out to talk about earthquake insurance...
we're fucked, and not in a good way.
Voluntary evacuations for residents along municipal shoreline
Posted: September 6, 2019 - 3:24 pm
The Halifax Regional Municipality is requesting residents living along the shoreline of the municipality to consider other accommodations until Hurricane Dorian exits our region.
The latest forecasts predict high winds, considerable rainfall, and significant storm surges. Waves are expected to reach heights of 15-metres (49-feet), which could create dangerous conditions for residents living near the water.
Citizens living in high-risk areas in the Sambro area, Peggys Cove, and along the Eastern Shore are asked to make plans immediately to self-evacuate. Citizens are encouraged to be in alternative locations prior to the arrival of the storm.
The Red Cross will be opening three evacuation shelters at noon on Saturday, Sept. 7 to accommodate those who are unable to find other accommodations. These shelters will be located at the Dartmouth East Community Centre, Canada Games Centre, and St. Margarets Centre.
While this is a voluntary evacuation, the municipality is urging everyone in high-risk areas to find alternative shelter arrangements for the weekend.
News saying that the National Hurricane Centre saying it will be a Cat 2 or strong Cat1 when it hits the area now...
i just demolished my 25 year old shed and put up a 10x12 vinyl one
i dont know if its gonna make it and i REALLY dont want to build another one.
However, if a tree falls on my car, that would be a plus. Its taking forever to sell.
We’re in the Peggys Cove area. Expecting a rough day tomorrow
What sites are you using to follow the storm?
Got our storm chips, storm beer, and storm weed, and gas in the generator. Battened down the hatches, we're ready.
Patio and yard shit all secured. 5 weed pens all charged and ready to go.
Does anyone have a site they recommend for following Dorian? I'm wondering where it is right now. Thanks!!
so how did everyone make out? power back for you all yet? pictures look almost worse then Juan
we made out ok in dartmouth, some neighbours didn't.
if anything, it really highlighted how i wasn't prepared. i was lucky enough to score the last 3000w inverter at canadian tire yesterday. that kept my fridge(s) up and powered all of our appliances and pumped my sump out.
I"m currently researching good deep cycle batteries to build a fully integrated battery back up for the sump pump
Didn't do too badly. Lost power at 2:20pm Saturday, got it back around 3pm yesterday. The wind took out a couple of lilacs in front of the house and part of the fence but other than that no damage.
For comparison, here's what my backyard looked like the morning after Juan came through:
lost power Saturday at 2ish pm
developed a leaky bedroom window, not real bad
power back on Sunday at 4pm
Ran my generator for a few hours Sunday so I was fine with that amount of power
Pm me, this is what I do.
Warning: it’s not gonna be cheap
I’m also knee deep in info trying to build a battery bank to pair with a 3000w inverter.
Lights flickered twice and lost 3 or 4 leaves off an old maple on our property.
We made out pretty good!
Lost power 2:30pm Saturday. It came back about 7am Monday.
45L of fuel and my 7500W generator made sure we were comfortable. We only got wired up for it last summer so the investment was well worth it.
We suffered no property damage, thank fuck!
Power went out around 3pm on Saturday, came back on today around 10am.
Didn't lose power at all in Enfield, no damage. It was a nice movie/chore day. It's crazy how around here you can't even tell anything happened, but other areas were/are a complete mess.
We made out fine, Cobequid end of First Lake. One busted sunflower, not even a lost shingle. We lost power Sat just after supper until the middle of the night. I don't have a generator or anything, but we were prepared with canned goods, propane, crank radio, all that crap. If I had the money I might invest in a 6500 kwh generator and get it wired up to the house correctly, but I don't, so meh.
