Casa Jane Prepared

We're as prepared as we can be. If the power and water go out we have enough food to eat for 2 or 3 days, canned veggies and tinned meat, bread, some fruit, bottled water and juice.

Patio furniture is stored or secured. In case of flooding on the lower level of the house we've moved some of the furniture to higher levels and cleared out a lot of loose stuff and junk.

I talked with the neighbors on both sides and everyone seems ready. We all compared notes on who has what so we can swap or share if needed. Tomorrow morning I might do some baking just to use up eggs, etc., and also to have more ready to eat food on hand.

The big worries are falling trees and damp or flooded basements.

Everyone is juicing up electronics. Mr. J and I are working out way through George R. R. Martin's "Ice and Fire" series (perhaps better known as the Game of Thrones series) so being inside with for a long stretch will give us a chance to do some reading.

I hope you all are inside safe and sound. Remember to check on your friends and neighbors.
