Hurricane Readiness

So, how to prepare for a hurricane? If you’re like many, you buy water, make sure you have propane for the grill, or charcoal- you stock up on food that won’t spoil, knowing roads may be blocked by trees and powerlines if the wind brings them down.

You fill the bathtub with water, if you have a well on a pump, so you can flush the toilets should the power drop. You make sure you have batteries for flashlights, and candles for atmosphere.

Or, you do as my 14 year old daughter did- call some friends, and put on your bathing suits, and wait in the yard & play in the rain, before the wind hits and you can’t be outside.

I like her thinking!

    Oh boy……praying for safety for you and your family. The weather has been brutal this year for so many.

  2. I think I’d be inclined to do the same thing…but in the backyard. My neighbors do not need to worry about seeing me in my swimsuit while also worrying about their homes!

    Hope everyone is safe and sound in your world!

    Just how close to the hurricane are you?

    Around here, we never get a real hurricane, just the drenchingly rainy leftovers. . .

    Bijoux: Thanks. It has been and thankfully we had nothing more than heavy rain & winds that were not extreme

    fadkog: Next time, you’ll have to c’mon over!

    Craig: Close enough that roads washed out, trees etc down; but far enough that tidal surges aren’t a problem. We’re about 40 miles as crow flies, to the coast.

  6. Haven’t heard from you in a while. Hoping the hurricane didn’t blow you away. Praying for your safety and that of your family.
