I hesitate to blog about this - I usually need a little distance and perspective before I want my words out in cyberspace.
I wonder if we have done enough to prepare. I usually keep a deep pantry, but I've only got a few onions and no powdered milk (that is meant to be a little humorous). I filled up jars with water (but I think the water warning is more for people with wells with electrical pumps). My freezers are full to brim, and my dad promised to schlep his generator over to us for a few hours to help them stay cold if need be. I've got a gas stove, so the cooktop will work just fine in a power outage. I've washed every scrap of dirty laundry in the house. The gas tank is full, cash is on hand, cell phones are charged. . .
