Start hanging them now, do a few each day and then leaves you spare time if something else needs attending too.

I'm up on Long island, but still look at the NOAA hurricane site every day starting in June. If something looks iffy, I'll have a 3 or 4 day jump on everyone else here.

We had the power go out last week for 33 hours after a big t-storm. So that was the tune up. I know where everything is and my freezer is cleaned out.

Our daughter is up in Debary 24 miles directly west of Daytona at college but our best friends live 10 minutes away from the college on 6 acres of wooded land and their YUGE house is set way back in off the road so if they decide to evacuate the college she has a 10 minute ride to get to their home, an evacuation was planned out before she even started college cause being prepared and having a plan is part of being prepared. She will be in good hands with her god parents. I hooked her up with a go bag and put a couple of cases of water in her dorm room when we took her up there last weekend...LOL
My GF lives in DeBary. I live 25 miles southwest of Daytona.
SW Volusia county.

when we first came here (2002) we were very apprehensive about hurricanes. Since then, we find we get more rain & wind from thunderstorms that from hurricanes. Matthew woke us up in the middle of the night with wind noise, but that's been the worst, so far.

We have all the trees that could hit the house cut down in the SE to Southern direction, 2 generators, 200 50 gallons of water, and a 75% full propane tank. We prep full time, so I'm pretty sure we'll be OK.

We also ask for God's hand on us every night - maybe the most important prep of all.

The news this morning said now its projected path is between Melbourne and Palm Beach.
Who knows? It's just guesswork at this point.

Thanks everyone. Yes, I usually break the shutters up over a couple of days. I should probably invest in some newer technology I am still hanging the original corrugated steel shutters. I have 27 windows. I do have accordion shutters over the sliders. My neighbor had some type of carbon fiber screen shutters, they weigh a pound or two vs what I lug around.

This morning all the gas stations have huge lines. I'm in central Palm Beach county, the panic is on.

That's a bunch of windows.
I've got 11 and sliding glass doors on the patio. Aluminum panels for me, so a bit lighter.

Yeah, thankfully I am in a single story house. If I had a 2 story I would have upgraded years ago.

I hope they are wrong, that would put me in the tornado zone if it goes straight across to the gulf from there. OTOH, wind speeds would be significantly reduced at that distance. I would just move from the south side of Orlando up to the north side.

Here in Olando it`s just starting to get crazy!. I picked up on water and batterys,today is gas day for the new Jenny wired into the house. Just finished installing it last week,didn`t know I`d need it so soon!!. Have plenty of Survival Food but with the fridge on the Jenny hope it`s not needed!. Also have propane stove so as not to use the oven and can use the microwave. Boarding up the house Saturday,hate that..so dark and gloomy inside but have to protect the windows!. Wishing ALL in this path of this Storm Good Luck!!.

11:00 update has her coming onshore as a cat 4 now. Iím in north PB County on a horse farm. I work for the County and am assigned to man a shelter during the storm so I canít be home to watch the horses. Jill will have to handle whatever happens alone until I return. Assume we will open the shelters Sunday morning. Busy few days coming up to button up the farm before I get locked in the shelter. Probably hit Walmart at 4 am tomorrow morning to pick up a few last minute items. Stay safe everyone.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you in Florida and in the path of this storm. It does look like it'll be a big one. I'm also a little nervous for us here in Louisiana. If it passes through Florida and into the gulf then it may strengthen again and head our way. Of course, it's way too early to tell if that will happen but I'm definitely keeping my eyes on the news this weekend.

That's what I was thinking yesterday it was going to get to. Maybe thinking it may get to a 5 by the time it hits us. Man, this is going to suck.

The college my friend's son goes to in Polk County is not holding class Monday or Tuesday, but will be under "normal operations" for faculty and staff. Hopefully nobody gets hurt driving to work.

If this one follows the script the next few days will be filled with more official dire warnings leading up to a "You are all going to die". Than there will be news coverage of "brave" reporters standing behind concrete barriers as the wind whips items across parking lots. Occasionally the news casters will go stand out in the wind and rain and look miserable for the cameras.

After the storm dies down, the first initial reports were it was not as bad as everyone predicted it to be. The reporters will head home. The next few weeks will be filled with local stories of damage and cleanup. The damage turns out to be actually really bad, and might take years to restore, but no one on the national stage cares anymore. That is unless it can become a political news item against the President.
