We get complacent when there have been a few years without any local major storms. Anyone living near the coast or in low lying ground, should keep a wary eye on the Gulf at all times. It is amazing how fast the Gulf can give birth to a damaging storm. Some packaged and dry food, canned goods, and lots of bottled water should be kept in a safe and accessible place in case of emergencies like hurricanes. Don't forget to rotate your food stores once in awhile by eating the old and replacing it with new.
Me? No, I ain't prepared. I would do the same thing I did last time one hit this area. Then we all jumped in the motorhome and got the heck out of
That was back when I had the class-C motorhome. My son stayed home and therefore we had someone to watch the place and report to us. Of course all power and phone lines were down for miles in all directions from my place and it took weeks to get it all restored. When you live in paradise, every now and then you have to pay your dues (grin). Paradise, you ask? Well, I like it here!! Now, hope there is only a little breeze at your place and I want you to have a great day, you hear?
