"As we are waiting, watching." These are words taken from the National Hurricane Center. “Your Local on the 8s.” Oh boy. Fay, does anybody really use this name for their child?
S. purchased a small TV for me which runs off of D-batteries. M. purchased a hair dryer for me than runs off the car lighter. These are must have items. Batteries, can food, paper plates, cash on hand, gas in car, extra food for cats, laundry, water supply, lotto tickets, all done. The wind picks up speed once in a while as clouds move over our home quickly. Hurricane or Tropical Storm anticipation comes to mind. The grocery stores are packed with long lines, and gas lines are starting to grow. Anybody who claims not to have time to prepare is not telling the truth. I remember hearing this statement from Miami folks during Katrina. Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance. M. and I always have one last meal at a restaurant just before a storm in case we loose power for a long time. Two weeks without power feels like months during the summer heat. Chance of rain, pretty good.
