Sunday 15th October 2017: 10.18pm. The worst hurricane since 1961 lands tomorrow. I have battery power for lighting and phones for approx 20 hours, water for five days with backup filtration for infinite days, cold food for a day. So we'll survive okay whatever happens, and my investment last year into disaster preparedness has definitely paid off. I do kinda wish I had bought that gas camping stove I meant to though, hot coffee would be great. I had been thinking we could just light a fire and heat water that way, but if it's super windy the smoke will blow back into the house. Of course this all assumes the roof stays on, in 1961 many roofs did not and you can be as prepared as you like until the roof flies off!
