Hurricane Preparation

It occurs to me as we gather supplies in preparation for Fay how much your supply list is a reflection of the current state your life is in.


Your 20s

When we were in our twenties it pretty much just involved this:

Your 30s

Then we grew up, got married, and had babies and hurricane supplies looked like this:

imageWith this on hand we could make it through a week without power or potable water. Babies just need to be cleaned and dosed with formula and they pretty much just slept – leaving time for cocktail hour. This fine grouping got us through the year 5 hurricanes hit us in Florida: Bonnie, Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne.



Your 40s

Now that the kids are older, eat real food, mostly wipe their own butts the supply list has changed yet again.

And then there is this:

Because when your stuck in a house with a toddler and a 6 yo and NO Backyardigans or Hannah Montana for the foreseeable future – you’ve got to go with bulk.

So here comes Faye? Ready to or not….

  3. Fay’s a pansy.
    Just kidding Murphy’s Law.

  4. Hysterical – I love these supplies! All I got was some batteries, some tuna, and some caulk for the cracks in my house. LAME. And it sprinkled, once. LAMER. Anyway, you were SO much better prepared than I was.

  5. Love that alcohol remained a constant! Glad to know I’m not the only one who’s dependent on the TV.

  6. Hahaha!
    Coming to you from Morningside Mom.

  7. He, he….So true!
