Storm prep

Ready for Hurricane Sandy.

I've got food, candles, batteries, a nice comfy blanket to lay under.  Hoping the power does not go out as I sit here listing to the strong wind blowing against my windows.

I made the rookie storm mistake of not getting any wine, or booze.

Lesson learned.

  6. I'll echo all the other commenters and tell you to be safe. Read today that in emergencies you have a better chance of having a text go through than a voice mail or email (but you probably already knew that).

    1. Thanks!

      I actually hadn't heard that. I will keep that in mind as it goes on. I have been getting calls from all over the world from relatives and friends checking in.

  9. Uh, well, I would've also suggested you get a mattress and use your bathtub as a place to hide in with the mattress on top if a tornado comes your way. That's what my parents always told me to do as a kid when we had hurricanes in Louisiana. That and stay away from the windows during the storm.

    XD But you can't get in the bathtub if you fill it with water.

    And Pff--I know most people say they drink alcohol during a hurricane, but we don't because then when the power goes out, it's not cold anymore. It's a bad idea to keep opening and closing the fridge or ice chest because then you lose coldness and run the risk of food going bad.

    1. Another storm tip I had not heard of with the tub and mattress. Good point with the food and the cold. They have been passing out dry ice to people in hopes they can use it to keep their off fridges cold.
