There is some kind of weather freak-out bearing down on the East coast, which means if you haven’t gone out to fight to the death over the last two loaves of bread, your whole family is going to be reduced to some kind of Hunger Games spin-off. Because obviously, there will never be milk and bread again, ever. Except, you know, in like 48 hours. But whatever.
My family lived in Texas for a couple years, and so we got really good at preparing for Mother Nature’s rather frequent gifts of hurricanes and tornadoes and the like. Yeah, yeah, obviously you need shelf-stable milk and granola bars. But more importantly, you need a few critical things so that you, the parent, won’t completely lose your ever-loving mind.
May we all get through Frankenstorm Sandy safely, and without having an embarrassing parental tantrum. Oh, and if you’re looking for an actual, legit list of storm preparation tips, check out Julie Miner’s excellent, comprehensive list over on Babble Voices: 25 Ways to Prepare for the Frankenstorm.
