Like most people on the East Coast, I am preparing for Hurricane Irene. Unfortunately, when we are living on one paycheck, and payday isn't until tomorrow, I have not been able to do much. I'm a little panicky to say the least.
I have water, I have bread, I have canned goods. I have paper goods and we know to charge up all of our electronics. I will make sure that all of the laundry is done and that the house is on a higher level of cleanliness just in case we are stuck inside for days without water. Why start out with a smelly house if it's only going to get worse, right?
If there is a natural disaster heading our way, for some reason, I bake. I don't know when this started but for as long as we've at least been here in NC, when there is a storm, I bake. I figure, if we have no electric and can't cook much, at least I will have cake. Cake is a comfort food. Cookies are comfort food. If I am stuck inside, with no form of entertainment, I am most certainly going to eat cake!!
Anyone have any odd habits they do while preparing for a natural disaster?
