So....there's this thing called a hurricane

I've never experienced a hurricane before.  Tornado, yes.  Hurricane, no.

It's been all about preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.  I've learned a lot -- like why you fill up your bath tub, and that putting tape over your windows is mostly over rated.  My car's got a tank full of gas, so I can charge my cell phone if the power is out (j/k -- kinda).  We've been filling various jugs with water so we've got something to drink.  I'm doing laundry.  Not because we'll run out of clean clothes, but to be sure there is sufficient fabric for projects.

I'm resisting the urge to cook and bake up anything I can think of.  Today is not the day for filling up the freezer...although I did fill up various containers with water to freeze to help retain the cold in our currently fairly empty freezer in the case of a power outage.

I did, however, bake zucchini bread.

We needed SOMETHING to eat in the dark.
