Watch out for Irene Addicts

For all our Addicts bretheren in NY and the North East. Be safe and keep your 1's dry.
Don't want to see a whole bunch of "how do I clean up flood damage", "tree fell on my baby" posts after this weekend!

If you're inland and garage your car you should be fine. I'm 40 minutes inland from NYC and my weather forecast is 0% chance of hurricane conditions and a 50% chance of tropical storm conditions.

People near the shore, though... Watch out!

We already got hit down here in Puerto Rico on Sunday night - Monday morning, but at 70-75mph sustained winds (betweeh Tropical Storm and Cat 1 Hurricane) . It was a blast. Right now, at 5:00pm ET it has 100mph sustained winds, so that's another story. Buckle up and be safe....

Garage List
2009 135i  [0.00]
I have underground garage parking but I was worried about flooding- so I took my 1 to the municipal parking deck. Found a spot on the 4th floor inner wall and left it for a day.

$12 and one day later she's safe and sound.

We got more than I expected in central PA. My poor neighbor had a tree in his pool and one through his deck leaning on his house. Actually took delivery on my 135i the day it hit. Raced home and put it in the garage. I felt horrible backing the 330xi out to make room for it. Kept looking out the window during the storm like I left a child out there

It didn't... I wish it did, but it didn't...

thousands of flood damaged homes and cars... not to mention a couple of lost lives, ( although due to stupidity in most cases)

co-workes along with 10's of thousands still without power..
