I’m No Fool. I Prepped for the Storm. Bring It!
Alright...I'm all wound up about Sandy's visit. I don't usually get THIS worked up before the in-laws come over...but they aren't a hurricane!
As you can see above, I got my storm necessities, too. When I pulled into Chinaford (Hannaford in China) this afternoon, it was busy as Wal*Mart in Augusta is at 1 o'clock on any given afternoon. People are getting ready!
I went to 32 General Store on the way back from Chinaford to pice up a couple things (gas and beer) and was pleasantly surprised to see the price below $3.60 a gallon. Can you tell there's an election coming?
Seriously, I made sure the important things were taken care of before the big blow. Below is my backyard sand pile (for target shooting). I carefully covered it with a tarp. Oh, and I picked up a couple of Evan's little plastic balls off of the lawn so they wouldn't become deadly projectiles. I told you, I'm not throwing caution to the wind (pun intended) with this one.
If you're anywhere near as prepared as I am (I mean I just bought a 10 gigawatt generator and also bought a 5 gigawatt back up for it), you'll be able to sit back and bask in your complacency but keep the number to the insurance company handy :-)
