I went to college with a Guy named Cleon. Really nice guy, kind of a geek. Glad nothing officially bad was named after him.

Was there one named Pericles too? That'd be a rivalry.

In a continued but lame effort to get this winter storm naming thing to stick, Weather Channel had dubbed this weekends NE storm as... Hercules.



Not Harry, Harold, Herman or Hose. Not Harriet or Henrietta.
Hercules.

Now what are they going to use if they get a REALLY REALLY bad one?
Howard?

I too would keep a supply of stabilized gasoline for the generator, OR a full stablized fuel tank on the Class A (how I actually did it) and the A was modified to power essential systems in the house (All 120 volt I might add, since that's all the MH can provide, No cloths dryer, No central Air (only 240 volt stuff I had).

Fresh water, In this case I'd keep it in containers INSIDE the house.

Food, and such.

Tire chains and other items to enable you to move when others can not, GOOD IDEA in case you need to make a quick trip to the human body shop (Hospital) as I did last Sept.

Brush up on your foul weather driving skills... I was often amazed at how easily I could navigate bad roads when others could not.. Of course PART of that was the tires on my vehicle... I bought tires with SNOW in mind. (All season but very aggresive treads) and I know to use my "Feather foot" not my Lead foot on bad roads.
