Hey, Cisco, the HSS blogging cat here…

About hurricane Irene…

Alright, you’ve been to the Red Cross site and have started making your preparations… Other things to think about…

  • Is your boat/trailer secure to the ground?
  • Have you backed up your data off your hard drive?
  • Did you take pictures of your belongings/home for insurance purposes?
  • Do you have your insurance form on your person along with a pocket knife and flashlight?
  • Do you have spare clothes including sweats in a watertight bag?
  • How much cash do you have?
  • How are you going to save the stuff in your refrig?
  • What about all those computer passwords you have?
  • Is the boat/trailer secured into the ground?
  • Is the propane tank on your grill full?
  • Have you secured your firearms?
  • Did you talk with your boss about possible telecommuting?
  • Do you have any form of communication should land lines and cellular goes out?
  • And then there are those bird feeders and bird baths…
  • One can never have enough bungee cords and nylon cable ties…
  • Did you stock up on essentials like wine and beer?

And so it goes… get ready…
