So I decided to walk around my neighborhood to see what kind of hurricane protection there was around. This was around 4pm Saturday before Irene was to make her appearance. Though I live in a “no evacuation” zone, we still have damage from wind and debris to worry about.

Several things i saw repeating around the neighborhood: There’s apparently the tape or plywood option being implemented to protect glass, but I’m not confident at how my the tape is going to save you. Better to be safe than sorry I suppose. Also saw lots of public trash cans flipped over with people just piling their trash on top with he occasional silly string (???). And grocery stores were still being decimated with people stocking up on food.
