Looks like we are in for some major rain! I hope you are ready. Be safe this weekend those of us on the east coast.
I'm always amazed by the panic that sets in when the weather gets bad. The stores run out of batteries, peanut butter and bread. I don't mean to say don't be ready, you should have a least 3 days of food and water for each member of your home including pets. Have a battery radio, have your cells all charged and generators ready to use if you have them. Don't forget candles or oil lamps ready to use and some games or a few good books to read.
However does anyone really need 12 jars of peanut butter and jelly! By all means remember that if you need to leave because you are in the path of Irene, so do your pets. Take them with you!
So be safe all and Lord willing I'll see you all Monday. I hope we all have funny stories about what we did during Irene.
