I am in the path of Hurricane Irene and yesterday I began the process of hunkering down.
When I walked into the Dollar Tree, the cashier automatically let me know that there was no water, no flashlights, no candles, and no D batteries.
So, I got some containers to fill with sink water and some snacks to tid the kids over in case we lose electricity.
I also got some wipes and shower powder in case the water goes out as well.
When I got home, I fried some chicken as well as threw some chicken in the crockpot.
My friend brought me a radio and two flashlights so off I went on the hunt for D batteries.
I struck gold at Walgreens but, oh my, $8 for 8 batteries!!!
The storms moving a bit slower so it hasn’t hit Norfolk yet, probably sometime this afternoon.
Just a few drops of rain and some wind.
But when it does, we’re ready, Praise God!
I just hope it doesn’t flood my apartment….we’re on the first floor.
