Well, as per usual lately, today is going to be very busy.  In fact, the WEEK is going to be busy – there have been alot of changes at work & I need to do alot of stuff.

So, another day with infrequent posts.  I have also been eating my weight in cookies & ice cream .  I blame Irene.  Since I lost all the food in my fridge, I have alot of shopping to do.

So bear with me, another week and I should be back to normal (or as close to normal as I get…)

Stupid Irene!!!

We made it through the storm – 27 hours without power & two kids under 3…  We did alot of crafts  (Thank you Nick Jr!)

and lost alot of food… but gained a new found respect for the power of the iPad…. So glad I downloaded the Scooby Doo  & Team Umizoomi to it….

 I have ALOT to do at work, so I am not sure how much I am going to post. 

I am sure you are devastated…

Being Hurricane Prepared

Share via email

I never really worried about bad weather until I had the kids…  Thought I would share some info I have found helpful:

  • Have cash on hand in case power is out
  • Make sure your car is full of gas
  • Have enough food & water (1 gal/day/person) for 5 days on hand (remember food for the critters too)
  • Multiple Flash Lights – including ones for the kiddies.  They will inevitably want their own.  And extra batteries so you don’t need to worry about conserving power.
  • Fill your tub (or buckets) with water so you can flush your toilet in case there is a problem with the water distribution system
  • Have an emergency plan (ie: where you all will meet in case of disaster)
  • A Go-Kit for the really organized (or those in evacuation zones)
    - First Aid Kit
    - Prescription items
    - Battery Powered Radio
    - Change of Clothes
    - Important Documents in waterproof containers

Lastly, this was posted on Fox 5… I was pleased to see I was not part of the evacuation zone….  Really, it is the little things that make you happy….

Any other tips to add????
