    Default Off topic. Everyone be safe!

    Hope everyone on the east coast with the impending hurricane heading our way is safe!!! I know everyone is running around here getting ready. I have to say I'm nervous to be with no power with 2 toddlers for a couple days. But we are set to go here. Hope you all are too!!

    Yes, be safe all! I hope you have a heat source in case your power goes out!

    Yes. Thank you! We have a wood burning stove. Thank God we had it replaced when we moved in. It has been very helpful these past 6 years!

    Yea I hope that he storm won't be as bad as they are thinking. When DD was 2 weeks old, we had a horrendous ice storm and the power was out for two weeks, So I know what it would be like!

    WOW! 2 weeks? I'd have lost it! We don't get storms like this on our coast but we have a travel trailer with propane heat so we could live out there if we needed to, but the batteries would only last 4 days.

    Yes be safe!


    And on a similar note. Does anyone(hopefully everyone) have preparations in their home already if disaster strikes or do you wait for predicted storms to go out and get things you might need?

    Where abouts are you on the coast? I was going to ask if anyone on this thread is in the affected area...

    We don't normally but we usually have stock of most htings anyway. so when predicted storms come we jsut stock up on the extras.. (water etc) but we also dont go crazy. we have plenty of stuf fin our pantry we wouldnt starve, and my parents live right next door and their pantry is more stocked than ours. we always have extra blankets etc on hand, and as for batteries I used to run out and get some (and may do so tomorrow depending on what our lantern takes bc I HAVE to get a start on report cards) but we have an emergency crank radio/flashlight and it does not require batteries so I dont freak out about those as much.


    We spent today cleaning out our gutters and getting loose stuff out of the yard. tomorrow we will clean off our screend in porch bc the wind will still affect it. Tomorrow we will fill our bathtub with water and fill up our 5 gallon cooler and I have a case of water and 2 gallon jugs. now thinking about it I should probably get more water and drinks for me only bc I should be drinking more.... hmm. add that to tomorrows list. (but even not worried there bc we have a brand new opened yesterday walmart about 5 mins from my house now...dangerous but convinent!) Im not concerned about the hurricane aspect we made out fine last year, but the wind is what I am worried about. we live in the middle of the woods and alot of the trees around our house are dead... we live in a "critical" area and therefore it is illegal for us to cut them down. (though they are DEAD) so our biggest concern here is that we are going to have trees come down.

    We made it! Having a newborn, it is mostly a blur for me. We have 4 houses on the farm, and two of them are hooked up to a generator. We ended up mostly moving in with my in-laws, ours is the newest house and hasn't yet been hooked up to the generator. We only ran the generator periodically, but it helped. Landlines and cell phones didn't work either. It was quite the experience, once in a lifetime, I hope!
