Good book to read?
Check. (Thanks, Mariga)
Three bags of chocolate candy?
Well, if Trick or Treat gets canceled, someone has to eat it all!
I actually learned from Hurricane Irene in August 2011 not to worry about stocking up on raw chicken or beef or anything else that requires cooking (since we lost power for days and I had to throw it all out in the end). Instead I have an assortment of foods we can eat as is: bananas, apples, carrots, two loaves of bread, two jars of peanut butter, grape jelly, cans of tuna, lots of cheese and crackers, juice, cans of almonds. I also have two bags of cough drops and plenty of Nyquil. Yes, I'm sick. My husband went out and bought me the bags of cough drops this morning, and also the last 5 miserable bananas in the grocery store. Why are bananas the first food to sell out when a storm is coming?
If the forecasters are right about those high winds, and we do lose power, I may not be visiting anyone's blog on Monday. I'll get to you later in the week, I hope. In the meantime, I wanted to remind you that I have TWO giveaways going on right now:
Enter here to win a SIGNED hardcover copy of GEEKS, GIRLS, AND SECRET IDENTITIES by Mike Jung. You have until Saturday November 3 at 10 pm EDT. International entries welcome.
Enter here to win a hardcover copy of TOUCHING THE SURFACE by Kimberly Sabatini, plus a load of swag. You have until Wednesday, November 7 at 10 pm EST. Again, international entries welcome.
Stay safe, everyone! See you on the other side.
