  1. I agree. He does predict what the surge damage will be but we'll see. I personally wouldn't put my azz on the line with weather events of this nature because he has little gain and much to lose.

    Conditions are going down fast! Had a tornado at the ToysR Us store. Trees are starting to fall. Gust to 63 right now.

    surge damage depends on tides as well as the storm, and they don't always synchronize (thank goodness)

    I've been there while Hurricane Gloria roared in. Similar to this storm, so far as the predicted track goes.

    But sometimes, hurricanes don't follow predicted tracks, so no one gets to bet the ranch on the center staying east of Jersey and NYC.

    Is it best to leave grass long before a hurricane or cut it shorter?

    is it bluegrass or rye
     
  7. I'd leave it long to create a Feng Shui look after it blows through.

    besides, it might help you to get a disaster loan

    It's a little late now, but we had heard that freshly cut is easier to cleanup after. However, something intuitive says longer would handle the heavy rain better.

    It is tall fescue.
