Stocking up on food and what not.  Depending on how strong the winds are up here, I think that we can expect a few more trees to go over.

We're contemplating a "hurricane party". :)

Other than that - nothing really. I'll put downt he patio umbrella and put away a few outdoor items.
Worse case is we lose power. Big deal. Cook on the gas grill and try to avoid opening the freezer as much as possible.

People on the actual coast might be boarding up windows.

You guys should be fine up north... it shouldn't be enough to hurt you if you stay inside... i recommend the party though.

I have a backup generator and well water.
All we had to do was bring in the yard furniture and mosquito magnets (about the time of the year to do so anyway)

If you do the party, make sure you have alternative lighting and non-electronic entertainment available, just in case you lose power. That sounds like fun, though.  :-\

I moved here from Wilmington, NC. Ask me if I'm REALLY concerned about myself and other NH residents...

SPOILER ALERT

I'm not.

Well, at least you're not still down there in NC, nor on Long Island - those places are getting hit hard. The people there have some problems facing them.

I was in Mississippi during Katrina... you should be fine if you get your stuff inside.

Worry not, New Hampshire, I gave Irene a major tackle while she was passing through New Jersey.  Went for a nice 1.5 hour walk during her worst - a one-man march to protest environmental hysteria.   :P

Bah.  Try walking on the rocks on the coast of Maine during The Perfect Storm (literally - I have the video).

After that, everything is a cakewalk.
