Hurricane Earl is making a threat to this area. So far we are only under a Tropical Storm Warning but depending on the path Earl chooses we could be right in his path.

So am I ready. Can you ever be ready 100%?

Water- yeppers, 3 cases of 32 16 oz bottles
Propane-yeppers , filled it yesterday
Food-yeppers , some , we have a freezer full that can be cooked on the grill should the power go out
Candles- yeppers, lots of them floating around the house
Batteries- yeppers
Generator- yeppers, cranked it up yesterday
Gas-yeppers some

Last year a Tropical Storm came through with only flooding but it downgraded from a hurricane long before it hit here. This one is still a category 4 and is off the coast of Carolina now. We are an hour from North Carolina. Seven years ago Hurricane Isabel came through and we were without power for 9 days. I pray that does not happen again.

IN the mean time, I am heading out to take the swing down.
