I’m near Phila and still waiting for the storm to hit. We’ve had some rain but nothing horrible. I think we as prepared as we can be. Our biggest fear is losing electricity Our sump pump in the basement ran like crazy with Irene last yr. We have a small generator. Actually we’ve had it for yrs, we just took it out of the box yesterday. If that falls, on Thur we will be having a giant BBQ using up all the meat in our freezer.
I’m always thinking up “just in case” solutions. As mentioned with the sump
pump. I blew up the DGK’s pool, it holds about 200 gallons. I put it in the basement, I figured it the sump pump fails, I can bail water into the pool. You may all laugh now. My DH did, but then he thought it wasn’t such a bad idea.
