Anyone who’s in Sandy’s path, better to be overprepared and underwhelmed than underprepared and overwhelmed. While you still have power, do a few loads of laundry, wash your dishes, fill any available containers with water, charge your electronics, and if you can, gas up the car and get some cash.If you have pets, make sure their food and any medications (this goes for people meds, too) are ready and easily accessible.
Last year, I didn’t lose power, but my job didn’t have electricity for a week, my parents were without power and water for three weeks, and it was a huge mess.
And for anyone who feels the need to mock people who are preparing for the storm, shut up. Weather is no fucking joke. I’d rather be prepared to live in post-apocalyptic conditions for a few weeks and have nothing happen, than laugh off the warnings and be caught without food, water, or the ability to evacuate if necessary.
ETA: yes, yes, typo, sorry
