Atlanta Buckhead - Huricane IRMA Rainfall/Temperature NOOA Predictions

Atlanta Buckhead -
Huricane IRMA Rainfall/Temperature NOOA Predictions

Saturday, September 9, 2017 Data     from NOOA


Yes, the storm is coming -- and along with it --
lots of traffic on our roads leading North.


Be sure you fill up your car with gasoline before you set out to go anywhere for the next few days. Lots of extra cars on the road fleeing cities to the South of Atlanta.


FYI --- Other precautions listed in a Pre-Hurricane post ...


Hmmm - is this true? Here's one I just heard:
Dishwasher as water-proof safe?  Apparently NOT!


 As reported by, this claim is


Ralph Feldkamp, the owner of Ralph’s Appliance & Air Conditioning Repair, is completely correct in his warnings not to trust the dishwasher.

"It’s not a good idea to keep valuables in your dishwasher," said Ralph in St. Petersburg, Florida. "Dishwashers don’t keep water out."


Another storm survivor, "quartzmonster" from Reddit, said:
"Yeah.....I lost everything in my dishwasher during the May 2015 floods.  A dishwasher isn't waterproof. It isn't designed or intended to prevent water UNDER SIGNIFICANT PRESSURE from penetrating. A jet of water from inside is one thing. Thousands of pounds of water pushing from every direction is another."


As always - wishes for your safety!

All the best - Lynn

The only thing I keep in the dishwasher is ice packs that do not fit in my freezer:)) Endre

Interesting tidbit on dishwashers! I did hear of people using their ice filled washing machine as a temporary cooler.
