I can't function in any type of crisis. We missed the mandatory evacuation by about 2 blocks. I live about 10 minutes from the beach the way a crow flies. I can drive there in 20. All the casinos are evacuated for the first time in history. I had no worries until I read your post, never having been near a hurricane. In fact, the salt water usually melts our snow so quickly, a blizzard never lasts. I am putting water bottles in my feezer, to the brim, have candles and flashlights, my freezer has only frozen pizza, no meat. I got a call from the electric company- a mass call- to be prepared for the electricity to be out for up to 2 weeks. What am I forgetting? I have to take easy child to college on Monday, they told me to bring him today, and I was too ignorant to listen. I spent the day on the beach...the waves were truly deadly, 1 toe in the water and you could feel the pull, everything was closed. I don't know what I don't know...Know what I mean?? Should I buy anything else? easy child is getting a haircut at 2:30 tomorrow. I haven't been here in a few days, I 've been really upset at my family. A few days ago I was mad at husband, I still am mad, and am having trouble getting over it (my last post). I don't know, I can't wait to go back to work (Thursday).
