Over at Rants in My Pants, I gave 25 great ways to prepare for Armageddon/Frankenstorms/Your in-laws coming to visit. I'm kind of an expert and stuff because I've had training. Government training. Even though these tips are silly, they are based on checklists from FEMA and Homeland Security.
But here's an example the government didn't teach me about:
|Kitty, get out of the damn picture. Why are you so into having your photo taken? YOU ARE WEIRD.|
Go ahead and buy them, your kids will eat them anyway. In fact, the hard part may be keeping them from gobbling up this stuff before the power goes out. It's like apple sauce out of tiny, little, pre-packaged containers is the most delicious food ever. I don't get it. Out of jar and they're like - meh.
Even at night, you'll get some light through your windows. So keep all your important stuff where you can find it, even when it's creepy, spooky dark.
You know, an apple a day and stuff. Eat it - it's good for you. Besides, after a couple of days with no power, a fresh, crisp apple tastes amazing.
Good luck and stay safe! Let's hope this storm isn't as bad as they say... xoxo, Lydia
