The National Military Family Association has updated their disaster preparedness page with specific information on how to prepare for hurricane Irene. A great resource for information on how to track the storm and see the potential impact on your neighborhood, as well as important phone numbers and a list of items to gather before the storm hits.
Even if the storm does not turn out to be as bad as predicted, this is the perfect situation for the old adage of “better safe than sorry”.
Take care of the essentials and then think about ways to make the indoor time a little more enjoyable. Make a quick stop to the library for some good books, the video store for those movies you would like to catch up on or maybe you could even stop by Dunkin Donuts for a “Box-o-Joe” so you can still have hot coffee if you lose power!
Most importantly, stay safe!
