LOLOL! I really really REALLY LOVE MY TRUCK! I don't want flagpoles OR eggs flying into it! Unfortunately, I only have a carport, no garage. frown

I've never actually been through a hurricane before. When people started telling me it could throw around my kids' trampoline... it makes me think it could throw small egg-like objects too! ;p

Moot point anyway, the neighbors are *Finally* outside securing all their items! Jeez, it just drives me crazy to see people waiting until the LAST possible second!

If you Trampoline Does not have the saftey net id flip it up side down and throw a strap over it with a couple tent stakes if it does i thin the legs would be easier to remove and then stake it down with a a few straps.

My friend in NYC was just at Target buying some supplies. Situation normal there, she said, except maybe for more bottled water jugs in people's carts than normal.

Thanks, took care of that yesterday! I flipped it and then used tie down rope things (whatever they're actually called) to secure it to two trees.
