Hurricane Survival Tips

As you may have heard, tropical Armageddon has descended upon the Ocean State. Over the last week I have collected these pearls of wisdom that I will now pass along to you all for the next big storm we get.

1. Make awesome friends. Thanks to Charlie from New England Yacht Rigging for replacing the lines on the mooring. There is no way in hell I could have done that on my own. Also? Thank you to Sean and Heidi for helping me get everything off the deck. Thank you to Todd for showing up just as Sean, Heidi and I finished.

2. Don’t buy bottled water. Bottle your own at home before the power goes out.

3. Make sure that when your husband leaves for his business trip, just 2 days before the storm is due to hit, that he sets up the generator. Also, take notes about how to run it, and write legibly—this way you won’t have to try to read an instructions like “Turn on the herglef switch, and plug in the kuzogg wire.”

4. Quit your job 2 days before the storm hits.

5. The day before the storm fly out to Vegas and join your husband on his business trip an entire country width away from the storm.

6. Don’t bother checking the news reports from back home. You’re too busy having fun in Vegas anyway.

I hope that I have helped you to be more prepared for the next big storm. In the meantime, The Strip awaits.
