Re: [APD] Hurricane Help

 i'd take them in bags, buy a rubbermaid bin and treat it like a tank, 
bring your things like a canister filter if you use one, or something to 
keep the bacteria, wash the bin fill, dechlorinate etc. better than 
nothing. i mean i wouldnt leave them if you care that much. it may be 
hard on them but.... it's better than saltwater death or falling death. 
even if i was a t a hotel i'd put my do not disturb sign out. maybe take 
some tank water in gallon jugs you use for sprng water at supermarkets?

you could get a UPC they use for computers in floods and outages runs a 
certain amount of time cheaper ones run two hours. and thats running a 
computer. strip to the essential electric devices, buy some cinder 
blocks a buck each . drain the tank... of course this wont work if its 
real big.... make the cinder blocks really tall, add some wood put the 
tank and UPC up high and hope for the best...

thats a hard one. this is all i could think of
