Storm Lorenzo Chat Thread.

    The suggestion was made earlier in the 'Lorenzo' thread to open up a separate thread for general discussion on this potential storm. I think this is a good idea as that thread is now incorporating both technical discussion and more banterish posts, which is making it harder to follow.

    It is probably best if we keep the original thread where more technical discussions & charts etc can take place to allow people to have a quicker access to the latest thoughts on the storm, and keep this one for more general chit chat and reports etc.

    Okay I'll start! General consensus is that Thurs/Fri are looking very rough, but good chance it'll dissipate on Saturday??

    Our Cork-based company is planning for disruption. Many of our operational staff live outside the city and have been unable to travel during previous weather events. We always take things on a case-by-case basis but with an eye on keeping business operations running.

    I will be in Dublin (tech conference) for whatever happens so will be interesting to manage any impact remotely.

    It seems to me a RED Alert is now becoming increasingly likely for counties along the west coast,especially the immediate coastlines .

    I think writing RED in colour will set off a panic. Please stop.

    So what precautions are you taking.

    I'll be making sure I have the bath full of water. I've a well, so no power = no water.

    I have a small petrol generator with enough fuel for 30hrs, so that will keep the freezer working.

    Open fire, plenty of coal/timber/peat

    Some gas and gas camping stoves to cook with.

    I'm sure there's plenty of food in the house., I won't be going shopping.

    Other than that, I'm just going to gather up a few torches and check the batteries.

    How well prepared are you ?
