Take a hike Ike!
My husband has been in Baton Rouge, La. for over a week now repairing electricity after Hurricane Gustov. He is on his way home to report in for Hurricane Ike! Actually, he's sitting on the side of the road with two blown tires! We may see him before midnight! He says he is so tired of being around foolish people this week. Foolish people that could've prevented shelters this week or having to depend on others for food and water. Moms roaming the streets with their kids with no food or water! He asked me to do afew things to prepare and I did! So, I went to Walmart and bought all of this....
and added it to this....
If nothing happens...great!!! I have a stocked pantry! If Ike comes our way...I can feed my family for a week or so! I didn't buy anything crazy and my family will eat it the next few weeks regardless!
Got Old Smokey out and located charcoal and lighter fluid!
I've located our radios, all of our flashlights, candles and lantern.
I have my new BS, my new magazine and my new book! I've also borrowed a Gooseberry Patch cookbook from a friend!
We are set!
Do you think I forgot anything? Any suggestions? I still have to put gas in cars and gas cans, put important papers and insurance info. in fireproof box, download pictures onto a zip drive and bring batteries home from work tomorrow!
I've read Psalms 91! I'm not fearful...just prepared! I'm lookin forward to a nice, cozy, rainy weekend!
Bring it on Ike.... We are READY!!!!!
