FRANKENSTORM is what the media has begun calling a storm that is predicted to hit our area early next week. Well, actually, I think it is 2 storms that may converge, right before Halloween… thus the name.
I don’t know what will really happen, nor do the forecasters, but the media hype is creating a great deal of anxiety, especially among people who aren’t use to this area and have no idea what to expect. To those of you who are freaking out, I say: “Relax”. Pretty often these things change course or fizzle out. Very often it is much ado about nothing. But, sometimes it’s a big mess. So check out my tips below on storm preparedness, along with lots of local tips for residents of Northern Virginia, especially Loudoun, Fairfax and Prince William Counties.
