Hurricane Preparedness

I am ready!!!!!

What more could I need: water, wine, knitting, needlepoint, knitting and magazines!
Honestly I have heard so much about Hurricane Irene that it can't possibly live up to people's expectations. The good news is in getting ready for the storm my husband has done a lot of good home maintenance. I've stockpiled everything I can think of. I won't need to go to the grocery store for weeks.The girls and I are off for one more walk before the rain comes. Hopefully we won't loose electricity and the girls and I can sit on the couch and have fun watching movies tomorrow. 
We've done the best we can it's up to Irene now.
P.S. We did just fine. It seems that there was lots of trouble around us but our little town is just fine. We never lost electricity. I am very thankful and the weather is beautiful now.

That's my kind of preparedness! I hope you all weathered it well. It's pouring here now and my trellis just toppled over. We're on the fringe of the storm, so I can imagine the wind in NJ must have been howling.
