I’m sure you know by now that Hurricane Irene is headed to the East Coast. Our governor has already declared us into a State of Emergency. Now I served Isabel just fine awhile back. I also was in Florida for Andrew. When I hear Hurricane, I’m not too worried.
However, my power never goes out. It may flicker, but I’m one of the lucky few in this area whose power almost always stays on. Yesterday I received a call from BGE that between 300,000 – 500,000 in my area could go out. Hmmmm, never received this call before. Is my lucky streak over? Am I bound to loose power? Fingers crossed that Irene won’t knock out my power. That way I can still bring you deals and remind you to enter the $185 PayPal Cash Giveaway all through the weekend!
So first an earthquake, now a hurricane. Does your family have an emergency preparedness plan in place? If you are also in Irene’s path, how are you preparing?

Did you feel the earthquake? I was sitting at my desk and thought the cats were playing on the back of my chair. I have lived on the East coast for 15 years but before that lived in LA. Funny how I seemed to forget that feeling… Be safe and check out Survival Mom. It is a great blog to help all be prepared for emergencies http://thesurvivalmom.com/

No plan over here. Of course, we have flashlights and water but nothing past that. I really think we're going to be just fine. Stay safe this weekend!!
