I have been looking at ordering the storm window clips , hurricanes are not common here but when I read we had a category 3 here before, it made me think a little more prepared was better than NOT at all .

Season is effectively over for this year. Might get another, but doubtful.
That being said, I am continually preparing for the next hurricane. For example, I have clips for plywood to cover my windows. Now I have to get the plywood cut and stored in the garage.
I purchased 2 55gal water barrels, now I need to get them washed filled and stored. (The filling may wait until spring so the water is fresh for next season.) Still trying to decide how and where I am going to store them.....
Batteries go on sale around Christmas, so I'll grab a fresh supply, and rotate last years purchase into use...

Iím not worried about much left this year. Still havenít picked up the downed limbs and trees from Irma. Iím always in hurricane preparedness/prep mode. Irma was the first storm I boarded up for in ten years. Hermine had worst winds last year than Irma did by the time she reached us. Keeping the boards up and watching Maria kept the house much cooler. So I am looking at building functional, decorative shutters that we can use all year long.

Also my generator is pushing seven years old. So watching the holiday sales thinking about picking up a second 7-8KW that is dual fuel. As I want to run the AC next time the power is out. With two generators, Iíll just set up the AC to run on one and everything else on the other. If one goes down, the other can be used to keep the water running.

Last item I am adding to the inventory is a toy hauling travel trailer. I have been wanting one for a while. Some place to bug out to if I fight with the old lady. Also the get her and the kid away for the weekends. Watching all the Irma refugees pass my town and every other one having a travel trailer or RV. It just made sense to get one. That way we wouldnít be dependent on friends or hotels. Iím only worried about leaving if a big one comes out of the Gulf across the peninsula.

Something still researching and considering is a 12v well pump. Having only a 4Ē casing it would be hard to sister on up underneath my 240v pump. Might just a cheap Chinesse model and keep it handy. As I can pull my well pump by hand, if I needed to install another pump in a hurry. Also thinking about adding interior and exterior lighting. So I can have plenty of light without the generator. As I just happened to spot some looters at 2AM when Irma was hitting. They where eyeballing my small boat parked near the road to keep it away from the trees.
