What does it take to get ready for a hurricane?
I grew up in central Ohio. So - I had tornado drills growing up . . . not hurricane drills.
Further, I have lived on the East Coast north of New Jersey for the last nine years. So - I have come to expect Nor'easters, public transportation annoyances, and a collective obsession with baseball . . . not hurricane warnings. Then came Irene.
A few weeks ago, my husband, the Bug, and I went on vacation with one of my husband's brothers and his family. We spent almost every day bumping back and forth between the beach (a five minute walk) and the pool (a thirty second walk). Tough life. By the end of the week, in an effort to break out of our routine, we decided to do something different.
