Message to Richmond Jake and to H and Mrs H:
Hurricane coming in the Hurricane State.
Wanted to particularly warn Richmond Jake cause this is his first hurricane.
Here is Sisterceleste's Survival Kit.
First of all you need all the stuff they say you need, batteries, flashlight and a thousand cans of tuna.
But here is my specialized list:
If you are going to a shelter be sure to take an air mattress and sleeping bag, ear plugs and a mask to cover your eyes cause they never turn the lights off at the shelters (as long as there is electricity, some are on generators)..
Forget reading if there is no electricity. Take playing cards and board games to keep yourself occupied.
If you are going to brave it and stay at home particularly with a significant other, there are things you can do that you normally do at night but remember there is no air condiioning. Once again playing cards and board games help past the time.
I invite others to add to my specialized list for occupying ones time during a hurricane and the time afterwards with no electricity.
