….DO NOT come back another day!
Should I stay or should I go? Hurricane Florence is moving towards the Southeast coast with fierceness. Like many of you, I feel frozen on what to do. Do I board the house and pack up the car and head “somewhere”. But where do I go? The not knowing is the worst part of any hurricane. The “what to do” becomes a personal choice and each situation is different. I am a worrier and at this point I think I’ll board up the house, pack the car of all our priceless items (legal documents, family pictures and of course the LEGOs…those are expensive) and head to friends and family in NOVA (Northern Virginia). If you plan to bunker down and weather the storm, please be prepared and listen to your local authority. You don’t want to be the rescue we have all seen on the news.
-Water (1 gallon per person per day)
-Remember you’ll need some for the animals too
-Supply of your medications, if your medications need refrigeration, a generator may be needed to keep that fridge running) and most insurance companies allow for 2 emergency refills per year
-Canned Food and other non-perishables.
-First aid kit
-Flash light with batteries
-Fill up your cars with gas
-Baby supplies – Diapers, wipes, formula, tylenol/ advil
-Charge any devices that provide light
-Bring in your solar power lights and put them throughout the house at night for light
