< Getting Prepared >

Tropical Storm / Hurricane Hanna is heading our way , so I've been busy getting prepared. Forecast says we may have heavy rains and some wind , so I'm making sure we're ready for power outages. When Hurricane Fran came through , we were without power for over a week.
Yesterday I filled up water jugs , cleaned and filled up the oil lamps. I 've been trying to get all the laundry done and checking supplies.
Today I will be finishing laundry and anchoring outdoor items and cleaning the basement up just in case. Need to make sure we have charcoal , and some dry wood stored.
We'll prepare for the worst and hope for the best , Praying she'll move through without major damage.

~ Blessings ~

right there with you. I have been working all week getting ready. Hope it was just for practice and Hanna goes elsewhere.

So far we are lucky here in Eastern Canada - no hurricanes but we have friends in Larose, Louisiana that aren't so lucky.

We'll be thinking of you guys and praying that all goes well... it will.
