Hurricane preparedness site, it has some great ideas. I keep some big storage tubs packed and ready to go in my garage, just in case. If I am asked to evacuate, I'll take them with me. If I get stuck at home during and after a storm, I have supplies to hold me over until the power and water come back on. My basics are: cases of bottled water, flashlights and extra batteries. Assorted canned and dried foods, medicines, first aid supplies, blankets, toiletries, candles, matches, a lighter and a radio. I also keep a cell phone charger in my car and my really important documents in 1 container so I can grab them and go if I had to. A deck of cards is a bonus. I try to keep my vehicles gas tanks at least half full during hurricane season, just in case I need to get out of town fast! No pets,or kids at home, but if I had them, I would have to make a plan for them too.
Now that I am prepared, I can sit back an see if any storms get named after anyone I know ... it's a great reason to call them and check in ! Please be safe. And remember, you do not have to be on the coast to be effected by a hurricane. I'm keeping my eye on Tropical Storm Barry, are you?
