    Hurricane Sandy

    All you east coast members, be safe this weekend into next week. The predictions are a little scary. I just spent an hour with 1000 of my closet friends at the commissary. The panic buying has begun.

    On a positive note though, i started my day at the NRA HQ Range

    In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets.

    50+ MPH winds at times here in Coastal Central Florida today and lots of squalls. Lets just hope it decides to go on a more easterly tack!

    It's looking like a busy few days up here at the Bangor, ME airport. Depending on the track we are going to get a lot of traffic or bugging out. It's going to be interesting. Being stocked up on stuff isn't a problem but, I am going to get some extra gas for the generator.
    Courage is being scared to death but, saddlin' up anyway.

    I'm ready, minus topping the vehicles off and finding a generator.

    We were supposed to depart Detroit Metro about 10 minutes ago for a weekend in Baltimore, DC, and Northern Virginia. After watching the NWS trackline of the storm I cancelled the trip.

    When I was the Supply Officer on the Coast Guard Cutter MOHAWK from 99-01 (homeported in Key West) one of my collateral duties was "Hurricane Officer" reponsible for posting the track lines of the storms and liaison with the families and the local base.

    Getting stuff put away tomorrow after work. I'm on some of the highest ground on the island so I'm not worried about tide. Got to check the generator think I need new cup gaskets, guess we will see.

    I lived outside of Bangor for about 5 years in the 80's, can't remember if the airport was 2 or 3 gates back then The Bangor airport always cracked me up, the gift shop had the same Kachina dolls I remember from the Tucson airport in the 80's Never could figure out why it wasn't full of little lobster key chains and stuff from the tourist traps on the coast!

    I do remember a storm a lot like this one that got all the way up to Maine, maybe 1984 or 1983.

    Relieved to find out from my oldest daughter that she, son in-law and grandkids are far enough inland to be OK. I must say I am impressed at the NWB and their storm trackings. When I was a kid/younger
    we would routinely get slammed by horrific storms without much, if any, warning. Hopefully everyone will be properly prepared.

    Everyone be safe. If we lose power, I'll be back in a few days.
