There's a lot of us preparing at this moment for the Hurricane that *may* impact many areas, including mine. So I saved some 2 liter soda bottles, filled them with (tap) water. About 5 of them. I will fill the bathtub tomorrow for non-potable usage. Groceries? check. Batteries? check. Fill up truck. check. Secure loose outdoor items--trash cans, chairs, anything stored outside. Generator fuel and Stabil. check. Even lantern fuel. Years ago, when I bought the house, there was the stub of a Rohm 25 tower that was used for a TV antenna. I simply added to it. It was not properly installed, and it was one of those projects for "one of these days". It had merely been stuck in the ground and buried by the previous owner. I became concerned that the bottom would be rotten out, so I had a contractor dig it out and inspect it, then install concrete. Naturally, I was worried about the coming storm since 20 feet had been added some years ago (post Hugo). Luckily, the base was in good shape, so he concreted the base in. The base of the tower already has a kind of a "foot" like an "L" that extended outward. I couldn't really disassemble it and start from scratch, so this was the next best thing. Now the tower is solidly in the ground, has "weep" holes at the bottom to let water out, and is not going anywhere. It would take a 110 MPH wind to take it out. Next is a good paint job. I know that if a tower is determined, or Mother Nature is determined to take it out, there's nothing you can do. All I could was the best I could to keep the tower safe from the storm. Good luck to all of us under the threat from this storm!
