Glad everything okay! We had a 24h power outage in November and the fish tanks got down to 15C. I ended up wrapping them in towel s and putting them in front of the fire (not to close). They warmed up to 17C!
I know this is off topic,but how long would a hurricane last?
I wish it would get that cold here (Florida) sometimes. The heat in the summer sucks >.<
Hurricane's usually last only about 2 or 3 days once they hit land, but sometimes up to 5. The problems usually come after the hurricane's though... with power outages, and flooding, etc... Those can sometimes last a week or more.
When Hurricane Ivan hit the gulf coast in 2004 we were without power for about a week and a half, and I didn't even live where it did the most devastation.
Lol yea... Florida (atleast where I am) seems to have had rain every day for the past month or more. It really is getting old at this point. Heat and humidity suck big time... I really can't wait for fall/winter. Or atleast for the temperature to stay below 72F
Some of the hurricanes that have hit the the Gulf Coast area in the past few years have been whoopers. The major hurricane damage is done by the storm surge. As the storm moves across the ocean, it pushes water in front of it. This brings really high tides to any coastal area. Sometimes rivers can be affected as far as a few miles in. Combine this with buckets and buckets of rain, and you've got a flooding disaster. And of course, they are known to produce tornadoes and damaging winds. They're pretty powerful storms.
I'm about 5 hours from the coast. We've never had a terrible power outage, but we've never taken a direct hit. The longest our power has been out was about 48 hours. That was before fishkeeping days, tho.
