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 :-)
