Shopped for food and bottled water. Food objects I offered (or have already got inside the house) include canned tuna, canned bird, peanut butter, crackers, pretzels, tortillas, nuts, trail blend, juice, pineapple, bananas, canned fruit, canned vegetables, snacks, and different items that will now not go awful quick. We additionally have meals inside the fridge and freezer that we will be using up early this week, after which the use of Quick if we lose energy, begins to thaw. I even have a fuel stove, so I’ll be capable of cooking even though the electricity is going off. We have plenty of pasta, pasta sauce, rice, eggs, and so forth that we can cook at the stove. In the photograph above, you can see a number of the objects we can use at some stage in and after the hurricane.

Preparing for a hurricane

Used juice bottles crammed three/4 full of water, after which they froze.* Besides stocking up on food and water, I even have a bag of ice in the freezer and 8 64 oz. If we lose energy, I’ll use these in my two coolers to keep the milk, eggs, yogurt, cheese, and a few different refrigerated objects cold. I am also filling up plastic garbage packing containers (Ziploc, Glad, etc.) with ice cubes for liquids if the energy goes out. If they melt before we use them, we will drink the water.

* Made sure that any wanted prescriptions were crammed and picked up and that we’ve got lots of the over-the-counter medicinal drugs we take (like once an afternoon allergy tablet). Also, I made certain we’ve got basic, first useful resource resources.

* Gassed up the automobile, so we’ve gasoline for riding, and so we will activate the auto and price telephones if needed at the same time as strength is out.

Tuesday & Wednesday:

We will use them to maintain items bloodless longer within the refrigerator, freezer, and coolers if/while the power goes out.* Fill up bottles and packing containers within the house with water consisting of a few to freeze. As the ice thaws, we will use the water for drinking.

* Put the entirety (furnishings and decorative items) from our front porch and front porch in the crawl space below the residence or house.

* Charge the rechargeable lantern and the portable chargers for cell telephones. Set out smaller flashlights, batteries, fits, and candles so they may be without difficulty on hand. We have a gas stove, so so long as we’ve done to light the range, we will cook despite the power going out. We even have a charcoal grill, so I have a few more charcoal for cooking.

* Do laundry because we do not know how long power can last without energy.


* Bake some banana bread and cookies throughout the feasible electricity outage. My oven is electric, so I will not be capable of using it if strength is out.

* Put crucial files in Ziploc luggage to protect them from water harm. We live on a hill, so our domestic does not flood; however, if a roof leaks, papers can be damaged. I also examine that you can place gadgets you do not need to get moist into the dishwasher to protect them. I am not positive if that works, but it is an interesting concept.

Thursday Morning:

* Fill up the bathtubs and a few additional packing containers with water to brush teeth and flush. We are on a community well, and when we lose electricity, we haven’t any water.

* Charge all mobile telephones and laptops. Even if we don’t have strength or wifi, I can use the computer to rate the cellular cellphone.

* Make certain the master suite closet floor is clear, so we’ve got a blanketed, windowless area to head to if the winds pick up and we need to run someplace safe quickly. Put some water bottles and snacks in the closet simply in case we want them.

After the Storm:

* Go through the complete residence to ensure there are no leaks (including looking inside the attic).

* Look outside the house to see if any siding or shingles have been blown off.

* Walk the belongings to see if any bushes that want to be eliminated have fallen.

* Contact family and buddies to check on them and let them know we are okay.
