Tropical Storm Isaac is heading our way, or maybe it is not heading our way.
Tropical Storm Isaac may develop into hurricane, or perhaps it won’t..
Heading our way?
We'll have to wait and see.
We’ll have to wait and see, but we can also be prepared.
I began the preparations today.
1, The Coleman campers stove is working and I have a back up propane gas canister.
2, I have candles and matches.
3, I’ve checked the batteries in a big flashlight, they are good,
4. And in an emergency lantern – it works
5. Finally in the little flashlight which I can strap to my head - (.it’s modeled on a miner’s lamp) – it will be a useful tool should ( for example) I need to use both hands to open a can of tuna or sardines for food in an emergency.
6. I bought four gallons of spring water this morning –to make coffee and to cook veggies if the storm hits here next week.
If the storm moves nearer I will fill a bathtub with water (not to drink, but to use to flush the toilet).
So, what I have forgotten? (I cannot afford an emergency generator!)
