Casa Verde ... preparing for hurricane season
Casa Verde has been preparing for hurricane season and keeping a wary eye on this tropical disturbance in the gulf Bob Breck keeps telling us about. Sense and sensibility keeps saying well it has been very cool lately, the coolest summer in a while and so the gulf isnt too hot and it wont create something terrible, but that doesnt make it any less nervewracking for us all.
I've created a little bit of a personal (family) escape plan and it goes something like this:
#1 is pet carriers. With a dog, 2 unwieldy cats, 2 kittens and 2 iguanas that all have to be kept *apart* you cannot underestimate carriers. Strong ones that Estelle cannot break out of.
#2 pet "downers" or baby benedryl.we have a cat named "cry baby." enough said
#3 big big gas can maybe 2, just incase
#4 battery chargers, batteries, lanterns
#5 bug spray. organic, for all of us creatures
#6 mommy downers. I'm going to the doctor this week to get some. The anxiety of hurricane season is driving me nuts
#7 wood for the windows - done, thanks to heather!
#8 attic survival kit with hatchet, food for pets and people, water, toiletries and the house title and insurance policy!
#9 car survival kit - ready at all times with the red cross survival kit from emily
We'll let you know how it goes. Please let nothing hit us or anyone else, anywhere-
