    Tarp Test!

    Well looks like I will stay behind, while I pack the wife and kids off to Atlanta, not sure who will be in more danger? I am sure the track will change, right?...but for now, should be dealing with it tmrrw evening and somewhere in my backyard Wednesday. Cat1 should only see random gusts over 100.

    So Hemingway, go ahead and overnight your tarp down here and I will set it up and try to video the performance test for you. I am pretty sure 100mph shingles and debris will shred it. Postage will definitely be less on the return trip, probably just your guy lines.

    We got lucky on this one here in Lakeland. Very little in the way of wind and rain. Everyone in the north Gulf be safe.
    Most of us end up poorer here but richer for being here. Olddog, Fulltime hammocker, 365 nights a year.

    Ha! I tell you what, If I had a whole barn full of tarps I might send you one, just for kicks, but Im kind of partial to the one I have. Good luck riding out the storm and be safe.
