Looks like it's projected path was moved way east. I still stocked up on water and what no though. at this point it's too far off the to see what it will really do.

My roommate's dad actually works for NOAA, and is in the planes that go into the storm. He posted a really cool video on FB yesterday of them in it. It was really cool.

Those guys are a bit different, the storm chaser air crews.

When one is in an area that can be affected by disasters, it's probably not a terrible idea to have emergency supplies on hand anyway. I'm not really in any "wipe out" paths, but I'm thinking it's not a bad plan to have some gear on hand, just in case. Not prepper levels, but more like smart-ready.

you don't have to worry about hurricanes, but I would imagine blizzards or something like that. In both cases you are really preparing for the aftermath not really the storm itself. You need food and water for when the power is out and/or you are trapped. Biggest difference is you have to worry about not freezing to death lol.

Worse than trees falling on power lines is ice on the lines. Get enough ice built up, the lines just flat out break and fail.

We must be the only lumber yard in Central Florida that has sheet goods left.

What a circus, absolutely incredible.

If I'm not mistaken, I think the reason they're pricey is because they're wall hangers lol

I love ya julesy, you do have a magnificent collection <3

that being said (and i say this to everyone here with love).....

Paintball markers aren't for hanging on the wall, things that go on the wall have value and appreciate. Paintball markers are implements in a niche environment, an environment most people avoid. Think of it like this bros:

QED

robber enters a premises to rob a person

robber is looking for something of value

robber has choice between 2 items, a paintball markers and a huge basket of knitting equipment in a picnic basket (includes quite a few balls of yarn, needles, macro maid, etc. etc.)

robber contemplates the following actions:

yarn can be maybe sold to a hobbyist, given to knit something to keep warm, etc. etc.

paintball marker cannot, but if he were to take it, he would have to probably take the yarn too to hang himself for taking something uselessly intrinsic to the user and absurd to the world at large.

the moral of the story, USE YOUR GODDAMN PAINTBALL GUNS! WE HAVE LIMITED TIME ON THIS EARTH, ENJOY IT WITH THE MOST INTERESTING STATEMENTS OF WHAT YOU LIKE! I PROMISE YOU THE NEXT GENERATION DOESN'T GIVE A **** ABOUT OLD *** STUFF FROM OUR HOBBY. seriously it's a sport that has kiddos coming in and out of it faster than Usain Bolt, you think they want something from 2001 that is a brick with fancy lasered lighting bolts or a monkey blowing **** outta its baboon's butt?

Like a hockey player starts learning, gets to a high level, OH DO I WANT A USED HOCKEY STICK FROM 1999, or a used jock from the 1994 Colorado Avalanche's stanley cup winning team?

I go into the older vintage section and if i see something, I'll make a real world offer, and if I hear from 1 more person about how rare or who it was fired by or its special feature that makes it unique, i'm going to **** a brick. And **** people who think they can charge more than MSRP on this stuff too, welcome to earth, there's plenty of room, but your old *** **** doesn't appreciate because it makes you feel like you have 12 lb bowling balls between your legs. I've tried holding 2 of those balls between my legs, you end up with sore feet and feeling worse off than you ever have before.

And i love it even further, OMG I CUSTOMIZED THIS SO L33T SO I CAN CHARGE YOU WHATEVER I FEEL

you customized it for you, not for me, i don't give a flying **** how much you put into it to fit you, it's now gotta fit me. ya like that, good, ya don't, GL + GOD BLESS but i'm not giving you a penny over a fair market value for something old and limited in possibility of both resale and growth of value. I'd sooner buy a large swath of the brooklyn bridge.....

that's what I think

PLEASE BROS, LIFE IS TOO FAST AND SHORT, ENJOY YOUR STUFF AD NAUSEUM!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well survived the hurricane. Luckily it went down to around a cat 1, and I don't even think we experienced that where I was. Sucks that our power went out, then when we went to start the generator the ****ing cord broke We all pretty much just went to sleep after that. There were a few decent sized branches in the road on my way home, but nothing major. No toppled over trees or damage to any structures that I could see. I was actually shocked the 75% of the traffic lights were still working. Called most of my friends and family, and they are all ok too. Some still don't have power, but other than that no real damage.

Hopefully trancer is doing ok. I know he lives further down south where the storm was a worse.

Lost power about midnight.

Got the generator going this morning so we have water and some power.

Oak limbs all over the property, but no complaints.

Really glad both of you bros are safe and families are all well. Apparently the family condo in West Palm didn't fair too bad, been a year of really ****ty weather overall hasn't it?

BTW a solemn and thoughtful heart to all of the U.S.A on a very tragic day. Less We Not Forget, Never Again.
