HAVE A WINDERFUL DAY!!!..The only thing I can say under the circumstances!

NO BATTERIES FOR YOU!!!

I just got back form the stores looking for batteries--none left anywhere  out here! I looked for straps this morning or bungie cords too, so I could tie down my lawn furniture---no such luck!!! This was a full 2 days before the hurricane is expected to hitNO BATTERIES TO BE FOUND out here in the Hamptons!!

Ahh well, it may be a good sign? I am going to hunker down and just wait it out---without a radio, perhaps and with out elecricity--it will be quite interesting!

I wish all my East Coast friends good luck during this especailly those along the coastlines and may the wind be at your back!!!

Paula, no batteries, bread, milk or water! That is what I heard all day long. I had to go to the store for chicken to make my pooch his food, and the shelves were bare! It was worse than a bad snowstorm prediction.

We have no batteries, we have a 10,000 gallon water tank buried up at the barn, it works on the gravity system so if the pump goes out we will have water for a while, we hope. But I have some in jugs anyway. And there is always the pond to get water from for that all important flush.

I don't think I have much to read in the house, which is a real shame. I will sleep I guess.

Stay safe and dry, LOL.

We have a stash of batteries and 6 cases of water we rotate along with 20 gallons of gas, you can't be too prepared, we are in Atlanta, guess we won't get hit, but in these times you never know what may come along.

Andrea: I am normally so prepared for things like this--after all we live along the coastline and we can expect storms to come along like this---there has never been anything like this so I guess that is what happened....i wish you luck in getting what you need, Andrea....take care and stay safe!!

Ted: You are very wise to be so prepared--I do have supplies but they are in my home and I have it rented out to people who came out his weekend so they need the batteries and my radio etc!! I guess they wanted to be here during the storm!!.....Go figure!

Thank you also for the great previous post: How do you measure success...you also wrote a few exceptional pages... what on earth can I do to get those professional and spiritual notes regularly? May you all be protected. Stay safe. Peter
