I say lots of beer and whiskey, no power, no worries. We have beer and whiskey. Sure made hurricanes in North Carolina Bearable. Problem is my roommates kept sharing with the neighbors. We got down to three beers and I said, no more. One for all of us and then we are screwed. We going to be so scared in the dark. Lucky for us the power came on and it was like 8 0 clock at night and they even opened the PX for us. Think anyone paid me back, hell no. Only person in the barracks smart enough to get an extra 100 so went and bought more beer and whisky. That night when the hurricane ended was the only time in whole for 4 years you saw every door open on all 3 decks and everyone was just chatting and singing, dancing. I do not know why, maybe boredom, but it was neat to see and not one fight broke out no matter how drunk. Unheard of, boy that mother nature is good like that. Hope the storm in North East is gentle but get your beer and whisky just in case.

Next month is the start of the hurricane season and I hope we get nothing major. I would hate to lose our fruit trees and roof.

I hear you those barracks can literally stand bomb blasts why none of us were worried, but every day civilians indeed.. Plants paid a dear price for sure. Hope it misses you guys or is gentle because you nice like that.

@Kandae11 I talked to a tree that a native American told me to. They will hopefully listen. They like who is this dumb white boy.
