It's like an assembly line out there right now!! The only effect EARL is having on Florida is it's bringing in drier air (which feels great). FIONA is not going to impact Florida. GASTON, however, is currently heading on or more southern route than the previous two. It's still way too early though to be concerned (see 2nd image).

Hurricane Party! Quick... fill the bathtub with ice and beer! Who needs water anyway?

We have a charcoal grill, a smoker and two propane grills (an electric one too, but that's not a 'cane supply). Every time Herself sees another grill she thinks "it's a Hurricane Supply" is reason enough to buy it!

So!! Hurricane Party and Tink and Herself's!! The electric will be out and we'll need to cook and eat a freezer full of "stuff!" Come hungry and like warm whiskey. :D

We have a propane grill with a side burner. You gotta have that so you can still make coffee if you lose power!!! :yes:

Yep. The larger of the two propane grills has the side burner and the rotisserie (but you'd need electricity for that). :D

When I was living in FL I had an emergency kit. I didn't care about the batteries or water, but I had bought a potty with biohazard bags. Obviously you know where my priorities are.

It's already affected me and I live 100 miles inland.

It shouldn't affect you Jeff. The international flights can take different routes to avoid the weather... you may need to drop south fast and come across more water than usual, but it would keep you out of the most of it.

However, keep an eye on the coast of Africa... those storms brew there and head across with relative ease and frequency.
