Hurricane Season Again

It's that time of year again, time to get out the old Rubbermaid storage buckets and refill your supplies that are probably still in there from last year! Get rid of the outdated stuff and stock up on fresh water, batteries, food supplies and first aid. If you have been in Tidewater for a few years, you know how this works. If not I've included a link to the govt hurricane preparedness site, check it out. Be sure to stay tuned to any tropical weather out there, things can change quickly and getting out of this area can be very slow. Plan ahead, if you plan on leaving, do it early! Are you asking yourself "why do I stay here with the hurricane risks every year?" Hey, everywhere has it's environmental issues, unlike earthquakes and tornadoes, hurricanes at least give us a weeks warning! Good planning works. Be safe and have a great summer! Remember, hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 1st.
