Storm Preparedness

Irene is coming. And us being totally clueless and naive were just planning on throwing a 'Welcome Irene' party at our house. But then one of my good friends kept sending me urgent requests that I take it seriously and get myself prepared. She helped me make a list:

1. Batteries
2. Flashlights
3. Water Bottles
4. Crank Radio
5. Propane on grill FULL!
6. Candles
7. Matches
8. Non-perishable foods.
9. Fill up the gas tanks in autos.

My well stocked pantry, there is no potted meat or vienna sausages in here, cuz, ew, gross..just canned beans and fruit.

My emergency preparedness basket...and can I just say, "NOT COOL WALMART PEEPS! For taking ALL the 'D' batteries, I mean, COME ON! Save a few for us clueless people."

Then she also advised me to bring in everything outside that might blow away or at least stake it down...
