As Nate bears down on us, I sense a bit of "whistling past the graveyard" here.

We've stockpiled 40 pounds of propane, 10 gal. white gas, a pallet of potable water, ten gallons of ultra-pasteurized whole milk, ten pounds of rolled oats, 5 gallons of peanut butter, a family-pack of K-Y, two cases of terlet paper, 20 pounds each of pasta, rice, and dried beans (assorted varieties -- don't want to bore our palates), a case of canned tomatoes, two wheels of cheddar, a case of Planter's dry roasted peanuts (low salt) and 5 gals of honey. 

I'm still not sure we're prepared for Nate. 

What have we forgotten, DM?

You didn't ask me but I'd say dark chocolate and red wine are missing.

Well, you have forgotten booze.
But that's just me, I guess.

That is one thing we are never out of. There's a permanent stockpile. 

Weed, too.

One thing people often overlook while stockpiling emergency supplies is entertainment. Buy some portable hard drives and fill them with books, music, movies and any other content that you might find useful.

California:  At least 15 dead, at least 150 missing, 20,000+ residents evacuated, 2,000+ buildings reduced to ashes.

Every bit as devastating as a hurricane or tornado.  Or even more so - the fires leave nothing.  Not a thing.  Just ashes.

Oh my God. Surely this finally the end!

Phillipe muscling in on an already torrential event.
Looks windy! Harvey Leonard says we are in the 50-75 mph gust zone!

That was a nasty storm! Over 250,000 customers are still without power tonight across Massachusetts. I for one had trouble sleeping until I remembered I had some handy dandy earplugs leftover. Anyone know what that max gusts were on Cape Ann?

Logan Airport Weather Station listed a maximum gust of 55mph at 3:54a.m. yesterday. I bet we did better than that up here.

Narrated video from NASA Goddard showing satellite images/video of the entire hurricane season. 

Note how much Saharan dust is entrained and brought over to this side of the pond, especially the Caribbean, where the dust and the microbes carried along with it harm coral reefs.

The fires in the west are also impressive.
