I am curious as we are preparing for the storm this weekend what I should do. We are in the high danger area, up in VT, and while I know it's very unlikely we will get full on hurricane conditions, it is still supposed to be very bad this weekend. I have a 10'x10' shed converted to a coop that will be housing my 20 birds for the duration of the storm. There are windows on three sides (one side has 3 large windows that are only covered in hardware cloth), and soffet vents on two side. Should I try to close any or all of the windows for the storm? We get Nor'easters every winter and some good wind gusts, but this weekend could be worse than anything we've seen in years. Does leaving windows open help the wind pass through and be less likely to cause damage? Or will it just give the wind a better path to get in and rip the roof off? Are solid walls more at risk of being blown over from the outside than walls with open windows? I was thinking about leaving some chickens in my quarantine coop there, but that's really not secure against this kind of weather and I'm not sure it would stand up to massive wind gusts. Even if it does, that combined with the rain would result in soaked miserable chickens. My thoughts and prayers are with anyone who will get a direct full force hit from this storm!
