Well, the rain started but it's a pretty gentle kind of thing. No wind yet - we're not supposed to get the real stuff until Tuesday and Wednesday. Thanks to the poster who suggested getting cash! I would have never thought of that, and I never have cash on me. I went and filled up my car today and stopped by the ATM. I'm trying to do as many chores as I can that I won't be able to do if the power goes out - laundry, vacuuming, that kind of thing. Made sure to take all my trashes out, since they were getting full and the last thing I will want to do on Wednesday is hike my bags out to the shed in the downpour!
Hmm, what else? Got some non-perishable, non-refrigerated food, made sure the kitties have plenty of food, got plenty of bottled water for myself and the kitties, candles and a flashlight... when it gets closer to the actual event, I'll go around and make sure the windows are locked securely and my storm doors as well.
Any reports in from people who are already experiencing the effects in the US?
