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 ?

RTE news just now said that Lorenzo is most eastern hurricane ever in the Atlantic, wasn't Ophelia further east when it tracked between the Azores and the Canary Islands?

Funnily enough there are some weather concerns in Japan.

In the event of a group match cancellation, the result is declared a draw. Effectively ending Ireland's world cup! Very slim chance of that happening though.

Due to fly home from Malaga on Thursday night estimated arrival time into Dublin of around 11pm. Any care to estimate my flight cancellation percentage chance? Don't mind if Aer Lingus want to put me on a Sunday evening flight instead. 32c today here in Marbella!

Being well prepared and equipped is simply standard living out here. We get cut off from the mainland often in autumn\ and winter so all is already here. I lived 5 months with no ESB when I was first here . All winter that was. Worst part was no computer unless at the school or when I went over to shop. So no great hassle this week.
