Your Storm Preparations: Too much? Too Little?
Hurricane Irene is still alive in New England, but has cleared out of the Carolinas, Washington D.C., and New York. Were your food preparations adequate? Too thorough? What would you do differently?
I overplanned because we usually lose power in storms, and I figured if I overprepared there was a better chance I wouldn't need to have been so cautious. The storm tracked slightly East of where I live, and the coolers packed with sandwich fixings, veggies, and meat didn't ever get put into use!
How did you fare?
