Hurricane Sandy

Post by Rebons on Sun Oct 28, 2012 8:02 pm

East Coast face painters,
Are you ready for Sandy? I've done the usual... Filled the bathtub and so on. I also filled 2 gallons for Facepainting water, printed templates (thanks Shannon) and stocked up on bribes to trade my kids so they'll let me paint them! Very Happy
What are your plans?

Oh, and I'm cramming as much FPF in as I can, I'm afraid of withdrawal if I lose wireless!

I have driven through Hurricane Sandy from mild wind in the Lower Keys on Friday morning to wild winds and a deluge of rain off and on from Miami all the way to home in Toronto on Sunday night. I am tired.
I have had my daughter fill my "tent weights" (26 gallon water containers) with water. We have candles. I need to buy some more matches and BBQ lighters for candles. We have enough food.
Should I tell my hubby I NEED to buy shoes? It would be a lie.
Sigh. I cannot tell him that I need shoes.

I NEED to buy some wine! And shoes.

Well... it is snowing here... I've laid in the hot chocolate, choc covered almonds, a whole lotta Starbucks K-cups.

Our kids our out of school today and the wind isn't even blowing yet. This evening and tomorrow is when we're most likely to lose power. It looks like it's going to hit north of us this time, but I've done the usual as well: stocked up on canned goods that can be cooked on the grill, charged the electronic devices, filled up pitchers & the bathtub with water... now just waiting to see if we'll be going to work/school tomorrow!

Why are you filling the bathtub? I don't think we've ever done that in power outages.

My concern is my 13 month daughter. I'll be heading to Walmart today to stock up on her toddler supplement and ready to eat foods. I hate all the preservatives but this will be our first power outage with her and I don't know what else to get..


I have an ex who is a conspiracy theorist and thoroughly researched the end of the world on December 21, 2012. We were together for 2 years, and he was very mentally abusive. He would always tell me that I was going to die along with the rest non-believers... I never wanted to believe it, but things are happening now and I'm getting scared.

I don't even want my boyfriend to go to work until the storm passes, but I can't really stop him. I'm afraid to be without him, I don't like him driving in bad weather, I actually visualize him getting in accidents. I'll call him, and if his cell is off I panic. I have become a very anxious person since becoming a mother.

Dear fessy,

A hurricane mixed with a a sweeping cold front that is nicknamed Frankenstorm qualifies one to buy a dang good pair of boots to get you through this unpredictable event.

And, of course, you need a deliciously warm and comfy pair of shoes to slip into after you come in from the elements and remove those boots!

Please inform your husband that you MUST be ready for anything!!!!

XOXOXOXO
Miss Ronnie

Jessica,
My tub is full too. In case of power outage we won't have running water. The gallon jugs & bottled water are for drinking and the tub is to flush the toilets.

Fesspenter,
I second Miss Ronnie. You do need shoes!

You're all in my thoughts right now. I hope that you and your loved ones get through Sandy with as little trouble or stress as possible, and that the damage and power outages aren't nearly as bad as predicted.

Hang in there, and let us know how you are, when you can.

Jessica, I know it's maybe too late for this particular storm, but you might look into getting a camping stove if you don't already have one. We have a couple of them, as we used to go camping before Cian was born, and I've always felt they'd be fantastically useful during a long power cut. Warm food isn't a necessity, but it's very good for morale and comforting if a storm's raging outside. Do you have anyone you and your little girl could go to stay with for a few days? Friends/relatives, I mean? I realise you've almost certainly already thought of that, so feel free to kick me. ;-) Hope things aren't too stressful for you.

Don't worry Jessica, "the end of the world" hit the tabloids in Belgium too, so I had to explain it to my kids. To reassure them that all would be well i told them, look, we'll mark it on the calendar and you will see, it wil just pass as all the other foretold world endings before. Took the calendar, and my eldest remarked "oh, nope, we already have plans that day, end of the world will not be for us..."
you just can not beat realism...

Mana, this is the time to just empty your mind and fill it with creative thoughts!
Hold on to those brushes, I too am praying that all wil be well for all our friends over there - and that the storm passes more quickly then they think.

Make sure your camera's charged up, snuggle in for the duration, grab your face paints and take photos to show us your new creations when the storm's over! I mean...OBVIOUSLY that's the answer to all of this! Very Happy

Seriously though - take care. Hope you stay safe and not too stressed. x

Lights have flickered a couple times but no blackout yet... It sounds like a freight train is passing outside though...

I hope all those hard-headed people who ignored the mandatory evacuation survive... especially if they put their children in danger.

Schools have been closed again today. The kids think that this is awesome...well they were terrified at first especially when out pole next to the house gave off big blue sparks. They got to run around with their flashlights and help daddy start the fire and help me cook dinner by candle light. Reminded me of Hurricane Bob back when I was little.
