Made my last minute rounds before the outer bands moved in. Picked up extra batteries, case of drinking water, and filled up the gas tank. Strapped everything down outside the house. Checked flashlights and gathered candles. Wish I would have bought a chain saw just in case large old trees come down. But I did hear that wind gusts are predicted at 30 to 40 mph overnight and tomorrow rather than the 70 mph predicted this morning. Ready or not here she comes.
