You would not believe how fabulous the weather is in Florida today. The sun is shining and the weather is hot. It was 100 degrees around 3:30 p.m.
ABC's for Hurricane Survival
A. If you have a cruise booked this weekend out of South Florida, you might want to call your cruise company to see if your ship is still sailing.
B. Do you take motion sickness pills? If you are sailing this weekend out of Florida, you might want to check out motion sickness pills. If you are on medication, check with your doctor.
C. If the hurricane misses us, it will probably still rain a lot. You might want to bring an umbrella.
1. If you are in South Florida - get prepared.
2. Store drinking water.
3. Store water for flushing the toilet.
4. Bring in lawn chairs, and outside tables.
5. Bring in plants in pots (they become flying missles in hurricanes).
6. Purchase automobile fuel. Tankers do not come into the ports during hurricanes.
7. Purchase non perishable food (enough for a few days).
8. Evacuate if you are in an evacuation zone and EMS tells you to go.
9. Make plans for your pets.
10. If evacuating, find out where the shelter you are to evacuate to is located.
11. Make sure you have medication (if you take any) for a few days.
That's all for now. If you all are interested in the progress of the hurricane; I will keep you posted as long as I have electricity.
I would buy some charcoal for the grill for when the power is gone. Yes that manual can opener is a must. Fly in a day early just to be sure your flight can get you there and have a room reserved before you leave. Have a wonderful cruise and Hurricane Dennis please leave cape canaveral un harmed as well as the rest of the ports.

Since I live in the same area of Florida as BJ I would like to give some more hurricane advice. I found when my electric went out for two weeks last year I still had to go to work & look good so I purchased a CORDLESS butane curling iron by Conair, bunches of little CORDLESS fans that worked great when the air when out. Actually Walmart has the best ones for only a buck they are so strong working. Also purchased many little battery operated lanturns in the camping section for five bucks each that light up a whole room. Just had to put the above in as they have made my life alot easier during the rough of the season. I live near the water so we always lose electric power. RO
