“I’m very fond of men. I think they are wonderful creatures. I love them dearly. But I don’t want to look like one. When women gave up their long skirts, they made a grave error…” ~Tasha Tudor
As hurricane Sandy bears down on the East Coast, it is being proceeded by flurry of activity. People are battening up the hatches so to speak and getting their homes and families ready for the possibility of flooding, high winds, power outages, and whatever else might be in store. Here we spent the day harvesting, checking on the animals, and getting some last minute work and play outside before the rain sets in.
All it it takes to remind us of what can happen is the memory of past storms. Just mention a name, and we are all reminded of the paths of devastation: Irene, Hugo, Katrina. At the same time, we all know that often times, all the hype and doomsday prophesies only amount to a bit of rain and maybe a fallen tree. No matter what hurricane Sandy (or Frankenstorm) does in your area, being prepared gives you piece of mind.
You can never be prepared for every potential, but this list is a good place to start.
