For the next six months, we are hurricane susceptible. As we live reasonably far enough inland, those big "breezies" rarely blow too hard around here. But you never can be sure. Just ask our neighbor who rode out a recent hurricane under his mother-in-law's bed holding onto his weapon collection. Think he will evacuate the next time they give the warning.
Yesterday we checked up on our hurricane supplies and set up a little metal shelf to house our meager paper products and food and water. We have a rollaway bed, blankets, porta-potty, a couple of folding chairs, and a wind-up radio ready. Just in case.
Especially at this time of year we keep our vehicles "tanked" up and ready to roll. The extra gas can also come in handy for our generator, in the event we decide to stay put during a storm.
Now to keep an eye on the storms and hope that this preparedness is just like carrying an umbrella.
Most of the time you carry an umbrella, it never rains.
