Emergency Preparedness

Living on the coast, we constantly keep our eyes on the Gulf.  A tropical storm or hurricane can pop up in the summer months without much warning.  Today, we are watching a disturbance out there and we have no idea where it might be headed.

It is imperative that we be prepared for a catastrophe.  Food and drink will not be available for several days from stores, and so we must stock up on them ahead of time.  I keep a stash in my closet for such occasions.  See picture below.  I suggest you do the same.  Pick out the items that are bare life necessities to ensure that you can survive.

Note to self:  Buy some tostado chips tomorrow.

This is a public service announcement.

    If you like Moon Man, give your local Lakefront Fixed Gear a try. I think you'd be pleased.

  • Fixed gear is also very good. Moon Man is my go to "Lawn Mower" beer. I made some home brew from a Northern Brewer kit called, "Tongue Splitter" now that is some hops.

    Those are some pretty rough seas.  I'd be puking my guts out.   :-&

    Being here on the East coast of Fl near the Space center, I also like to keep pantrys stocked, I  have a generator and several cans of gas, fill up your cars with gas and don't forget cash as the money machines have no power to work. You'll be safe.

    I was talking to the BGE dealer in Wilmington, NC a few weeks ago.  He told me every time there is a storm developing in the Atlantic that has any local potential, he has his best days of the year.  Apparently everyone runs out and buys a BGE so they can have something to cook on after the storm.  Pretty hard to blow a BGE away I bet (I hope).

    There are two places I want to go before I die.  It's the only two items on my bucket list.

    Visit Collinsville, Illinois and see the world's largest bottle of ketchup, and the Cruzan Rum Factory.

    I didn't even know about the worlds largest bottle of ketschup being in Collinsville. I have been there several times as well (I'm not from IL, just stuck here for a bit).

    The Cruzan Rum factory makes all the ingredients into a syrup then exports it to the US where it is officially made into alcohol. Pretty crazy. We enjoyed the tour.
