I hope everyone who is in Irene's path has gotten ready! I have done my best. All our flashlights are accounted for, extra batteries lined up, candles out of the storage closet, matches ready to go. Cans of tuna, loaves of bread, jars of peanut butter, 2 bottles of Cabernet, the mini-grill, snacks, boxed juices and milk all accounted for. I didn't have to do much to prepare...I think my new stocking up at BJs has paid off.
