Since I’m not a NY state resident just living here off and on taking care of aging relatives I can’t have any firearms. I pray everyday that should something happen I am not on long island when it does but back in my condo in south florida.On a positive note, having a solid 4x4 vehicle, well supplied with extra tires( note plural) gas tank spares, etc is a good start.
Get off the island early, or get to Montauk.
Have food and water and weapons.
You may need to keep what you already have.
Or take what you need.
Florida has it’s own set of challenges but I can get to the gulf coast in an hour and a half to two hours drive from Miami across the alley or head north along I-95 or catch a boat or plane to pretty much anywhere between Fort lauderdale (mid size airport)/Miami Airport (huge airport)/ Palm Beach airport (small airport).
I am looking into buying a used (4-5 year old) Toyota 4Runner to give me more ground clearance and comfort since I drive back and forth between ny and fl a couple times a month now. I am 50+ years old and alone so whatever happens I either say a hail mary and hope for the best or try and get up to saratoga springs where I have some family. History has shown unless you leave a week early the interstate will be a bad choice in a storm.
While up here in the empire state I have been studying for my amateur radio technician class license.
