In case of disasters- as woodworkers- how many/ or how much “sheet” goods do you have in case of emergency?
https://www.local10.com/weather/hurricane-irma/home-depot-customer-attacked-in-plywood-dispute-during-hurricane-irma-preps
For me, from my inventory, I could use 4×8 sheets of MDF, Melamine but what would break my heart; the Maple and Oak veneers. Heck if the disaster will kill me, then what good are those, A1/B sheets going to do me?
Just a thought—

Between Harvey and Irma we have lost our collective minds. Saw what Irma did to that small island in the Caribbean they got hammered. Almost nothing left.

Yeah, eleven years with no major hurricanes and now Mother Nature is making up for it.

I have a stash of plywood if you need it, and I am quite prepared to donate it to a good cause.

All hurricanes are dangerous, not just 3’s and above. The 2nd most destructive hurricane on record, and largest hurricane on record, Sandy, was “only” a category 2 when it hit the US. Matthew killed 28 people in NC alone and caused millions in flood damage. Mother Nature didn’t take a break.

Yes there most certainly is. She used to star in commercials for Chiffon Margarine.

This is too appropriate for the U.S. at this time!

The several hundred forest fires in Washington, Oregon, Montana, and California along with flooding from Harvey and possibly Irma.

Irma translated Goddess of War

Can we agree that we want the world to be a better place?

Desert_Woodworker, I wasn’t pushing climate change I wanted to point out that right now the U.S. is sufferin in biblical proportions at opposite sides of the country. The book was the first thing I found that stated Hell or High Water!

I have relatives and friends that live in Washington and Montana that have sent pictures of the conflagration in both states and I don’t really know which is worse hell or high water!

My mother told me, as I was too young, about the WALLS OF FIRE during the bombings of northeast, the Prussia area of Germany where she was living at the time and I can see her description in the fires in the western states.

I was thinking about trying to fined some plywood but gave up on the idea because everyone said that HD’s and Low’s are cleaned out.

While I was talking to a neighbor out front of our house when this guy in a truck stopped and asked if I needed some plywood for FREE. I was like ….YES! He said he just took care of a few businesses boarding up their windows and had a few sheets of 1/2 AC left over.

I was able to cover all of the front and side windows. I think someone up there is looking out for us!
