Disaster Preparedness

Does one fill the tub with water with pending hurricane? I seem to remember back when Fran came through…that was the advice to me, newly arrived from California. We got 22 inches of rain in that storm. Katrina caused my parents to evacuate from their new home in Pensacola and head north to our home…my mom was frantic, my dad banned the weather channel…said the programing was inciting fear in viewers…mom specifically. They returned home to find their home intact.
We have two plus acres with woods. My daughter is out to sea with her helos on a ship off the coast. I am lighting my Virgin De Guadalupe candles until my daughter is back on land and Irene is gone.
