How To Prepare For A Hurricane

This is what I ran out and picked up at Target and CVS yesterday in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy.

* Half and half for my coffee. 
* Diet Coke.
* Candles.
* Applesauce squeezy thingies. Just in case. Plus, I love them. Great to toss in a bag for a snack on the go.

Notice that my haul does not include batteries. I searched high and low for D batteries to use in an old boom box in case of power outage. But it seems that everyone else beat me to the punch. Which makes sense as I went on this big search around 2 in the afternoon.

Bottom line. I was happy as a clam. I had a chicken in the crockpot and a big glass of wine and all my necessities at the ready. Just in case.

How did you prepare for Hurricane Sandy? And did your area have much damage? I hope not!

I didn't do too much. Thank goodness we only lost power for like 24 hours. I did sleep in the basement because of the trees, but came upstairs at 5 am because of the 2 snoring dogs!

I love your provisions. We bought water, flashlights and whole family camped out in living room away from big trees. We are in Noethern Virginia and lost pwr for 9 hrs.

We got quite a bit of snow from it in Western NC, but luckily no power outages!

Super scary storm. I went to target that saturday before the storm and no D batteries. I took the boys to toys r us after for a lego event....they were loaded with batteries of all kinds including D!! I stocked up there. FYI Toys R Us and Sports stores always have lots in stock!!
