I just drove back home from Houston yesterday and there wasn’t that much traffic leaving Houston. Now that there are mandatory evacuations for some areas, I think it might get pretty bad like three years ago when they were evacuating for another hurricane, I can’t remember the name right now, Rita I think…
Hurricane Dolly hit just 1 hour from where I live and the good thing is that it wasn’t that bad in my area. The only thing we worried about was the power outage that lasted two days. Some friends didn’t have power for a whole weak, so I bet that really sucked.
Power outage is what I worry about more than the hurricane. Losing several pounds worth of steaks does not sound like fun.[/quote]
I know, we are used to having electricity all the time that once you don’t have it for a while, you really start appreciating it a little more. I would recommend looking into some generators and connecting a small cooking plate. Maybe you can also buy a small grill with enough charcoal to last you for a couple of days. And have some reading materials or something to just keep you entertain because it really gets boring without electricity.
