Okay so far, although Dan is sabotaging my strategy to make the house cold before we lose power. I gave the man a sweater. He needs to leave the thermostat alone.
I can't find the C batteries for the portable TV and I didn't get more at the start of the season. Looks like we'll be on radio-only after we lose power. That and Blackberry, but we'll be trying to conserve the batteries on that until after the storm. We aren't going to be going out to the truck to recharge during a hurricane. (We have a detached garage, 1950s-style.)
Just heard a bump outside but it could've been anything.
Still no rain, but weather.com says sustained winds of 33 mph, gusts of 57. Sounds about right.
I might go heat up some dinner now. I'll be up all night.
