Default To Shutter or not Shutter

Up to a Cat 3!

So, do I Shutter the 26 openings or not?

I guess I will go fuel up now.

No harder than it is to shutter, I think I'm going to err on the side of caution. Be kinda dumb to need it and not have it. I'd rather have it and not need it.

Weather Channel said it could be a 3 if it stalls offshore before landfall

Sure looks like it's going east of us. We only have a 50-60% chance of tropical storm force winds according to one of the graphics. I'm not shuttering unless something changes.

Prepared. And watch. Have your plan in place, we keep ours in place all during the hurricane season, to illuminate the encounters of panicked people as landfall draws near.

I will make my decision this evening, it takes 6 hours to Shutter by myself. Got my fuel in vehicles topped off. And cans filled for the Genny, water check, ice made, 4 tanks of propane for the barbecue

DO NOT FORGET BEER!!
I was able to secure a lot of help after Ivan with the promise of ice cold beer, more valuable than cash in your pocket.

I'll start to think hard about putting the shudders on this evening depending on where its heading..... if current track remains, no,.... who know just yet… may just do the windward side of the house for something to do.... you know, training....
