Just a reminder to everyone. . . Storms like this have a probability to create power outages and flooding (for certain neighborhoods). But we'll be in pretty good shape compared to other communities. We'll all survive this one.

But maybe, just maybe. . .

Use this 'storm' to check your emergency supplies - Batteries? Flashlights? Food and Water Supply (including your pet's stuff). Talk to your family about an evacuation plan. Gas in the car? And while you're at it, do you have your Gas Shutoff Wrench where it should be? Sandbags if needed? Too late to clean the gutters or drains near you? Got your shovel?

And . . . after the rainstorm - if you have the time and energy. . .look into your town's Emergency Service Volunteer group to be better prepared. Never hurts to be ready.
