First off I have to say my children think it is hilarious that this storm is named after their beloved fish character.
It has been a little crazy here already in Huntington, the gas lines started last night, and a few stations either ran out or closed down early to save gas. They had lights out at 8pm. Today same thing long gas lines, there are even lines at atm’s and grocery stores are just a nightmare. Bottled juice on sale bread, juice and water completely cleared off the shelves.
How am I preparing, well I am not really. That sounds bad I know. I am just tired of preparing for storms honestly. We have flashlights, batteries, blankets etc.
I am not going to go crazy on the food, because during Sandy I stocked up and then everything perishable went bad, as we didn’t have power for weeks, and ice was hard to find.
We went into debt preparing for Hurricane Sandy, and while we again don’t have much money, I do not want to go into debt again for this storm. So I am taking my chances with what I have. A almost full tank of gas, $15 cash, full propane tank for grill, the food we have and family.
So I am the fool, if we loose power longer than a day or two.
The only thing that matters to e right now is getting everyone home safe from school and work today. I’ll deal with the rest later.
What are you doing to prepare?
