As of the 11pm update it appears my original guess still holds:

- Worst weather from Monday noon to Tuesday noon.
- Winds 40mph sustained with guests to 65mph
- 3+ inches of rain. Could be more - its tough to predict with the bands moving through.


Today I cleared the gutters, put away anything likely to blow and generally battened down the hatches.


- Batteries for lights, emergency radio
- Charge up my auto jump-pack battery which is great for keeping my cell phone charged
- Fill the car with gas
- Get extra gas for the generator
- Make sure the generator works!
- Make sure the chain saw works!
- Potable water
- Bucket or two of water to flush the toilet
- Emergency heater
