The gas tanks are full, and our refrigerators are also full. Perhaps we’re over-reacting a bit, but just in case, we’ve taken a few steps around our household to prepare for what Hurricane Sandy may bring Central New York. First, our radios are set to Lite 98.7 for information updates, next…

I’ve gathered up all the items in our yard that could blow away like the chairs, the tables and the umbrella and stuffed them into the shed.

Next, we’ve gathered up some candles and lighters along with the flashlights and batteries in case of a power outage.

Extra blankets and comforters are ready in case we can’t fire up the furnace due to downed power lines.

And as I wright this article, our house is warming to 70 degrees. If we go a day without power, we should be okay. Experience shows me that it will take a few days before the house will cool to outside temperatures.

Well, I hope I’ve inspired you to take a few steps of your own to prepare your family for what the weather may bring us today.
