Storm Preparations

Wanna know how Chez Norton prepares itself for a hurricane?

Well, since we both had to work yesterday (and today I might add), neither one of us had much chance to get to the store. When the Mrs finally did get around to going out for basic necessities (you know… Pop Tarts), there were none to be found. So, she bought ice cream instead.

When we looked in the cupboard, we found precious little food – even though Whiny said he’d still be able to eat the ramen noodles if the power were out (mmm… crunchay…) So, last night we went to our neighborhood Chinese restaurant, specifically for the leftovers.

And since the kids have no school today, and all the stuff we were scheduled to do there tomorrow was cancelled (senior pictures… laptop distribution…), Whiny is preparing an RPG session for the four of us for Saturday.

Batteries? Um…
Bottled water? Er…
Canned food? Couple a cans of Spaghetti O’s?
Candles? Check.
Pretzels and Chex Mix? Check.
Dice, paper and pencils? Check.

Yep. We’re ready. Bring it on, Charley!

Seriously… be safe all you people on the west coast (Kat, Dragonleg, Kathy, Lewis…) Same goes for all you Central Floridians, too!
