Well, I'm preparing as best as I can, here on Long Island. Forecasters predict the Hurricane, named Irene , will make landfall on Long Island. We are expecting 90MPH winds.
I have stocked up on bread and cheese, and bought a fresh jar of peanut butter (I had run out of PB). I bought eggs, and hard-boiled a dozen. I have about four gallons of water in my 'fridge. I plan to pt masking tape on my windows later.
My batteries are charged, and I have an inverter, so at least I will have my radio, in the event the power goes out.
Who else is preparing for the big storm? Long Island was devastated by a hurricane in 1938, but that was before I was born.
