    if ya think power is going out, fill bathtubs with water. candles, deck of cards. our power was out 5 days on the last big one when it came back on I had no hot water- old gas line had leaked.
    park cars away from trees. think of high ground for the livestock.
    hold on tight.
    best of luck.

    Thanks for the concern Bill. The way it looks now I'll be takin' it in the shorts with this one. My farm is about a quarter mile from the coast. Big wind and coastal floods. I'm securin' up everything the best I can, and hopin' for the best. I got a big generator and 50 gallons of gas in case we're without power for any extended period. I'll be spendin' the day today helpin' friends get their boats out of the water and makin' little life jackets for the quail. I'll let you all know how I come out of this after it passes.

    Hurricanes sux but the rain would help. I went to the aftermath of Rita & Katrina for work it was a row to hoe seeing the damage they caused. I've been through my share when I lived in H Town. Ike was the last one & the power was out forever. I had luckily bought a new Honda generator one of the small portable ones . That thing saved my life. Dang think would only burn a gallon of gas a day. The biggest problem was getting gas. I pray for all of yall & all your livestock as well.
