Be Hurricane-Ready!

Be Prepared ...

Be "hurricane-ready" as June 1st heralds the beginning of Hurricane Season. For the most part, I think that Floridians are prepared, either with nice storm shutters or ugly plywood for their window protection. We have the latter!

Many of us have those noisy gasoline-powered generators – so here's a plug for my choice of a clean, silent-running generator powered by the sun: the Solar Generator. Check it out!

'Before' and 'After' Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne'Before' and 'After' Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne turned our lives and workshops, machinery, and buildings upside down.

Top of the list, though, for being hurricane-ready is emergency food and supplies. Get your NOAA radio, medical supplies, batteries, maps ready now – so you won't be rushing around later.

Start buying an extra gallon of water each week when you shop, that way the expense won't be 'all at once' when the hurricane strikes.

and Put Away Now!

Food: Get crackin' and get some fresh produce dehydrated now. Follow our six steps and store it safely so that you'll be prepared with dehydrated food on-hand. Our dehydrated food is vacuum-sealed, so it keeps out any rain water too!

We had our 'wake-up' call in 2004, after I'd been in Florida 24 years without seeing any hurricanes personally - so now we do not take the hurricane season lightly anymore.

Easy Food Dehydrating & Safe Food Storage

It doesn't seem all that long ago, really, that dad and I popped down to Lowe's of Vero Beach, Florida, in his truck, and we were lining up ... along with 30 or so other like-minded people. All of whom had flatbeds in tow, with sheets of plywood standing on edge.

It was a feeling of camaraderie, no-one was panicking, no pushing and shoving to get to the front of the line ... we were all there for the same reason – to protect our homes and families and to be prepared for Hurricane Frances (and Jeanne as it turned out).

Check out our pics at the above "Hurricane Frances" link.

Kudos definitely go to Lowe's for being so organized and this was at 7am in the morning!

Added September 12, 2013:

I'd like to add a few words here as it's been almost a year now since Hurricane Sandy – the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of  the 2012 season and won't soon be forgotten either – and my heart goes out the survivors who are no doubt still trying to get their lives back to some semblance of normalcy.

Today the weather outside my window is thundery and pouring down with rain – ah well, that's what you get for living in the (almost) tropics ... so, I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that this year we'll be blessed with no hurricane damage at all to the beautiful shorelines of the United States of America.
