It's all hurricane prep here. I've changed the bed linens, finished three loads of laundry, scrubbed the kitchen counters and tidied up the bedroom. Sort of. I've also organized the drawers in the bathroom vanity. I've not specifically seen that included on suggested practices for severe weather, but it's best to be certain.

Beef stew is in the slow cooker; I figure if we're out of power - and we will be, no doubt, though I know not for how long - it's easy to reheat on top of the wood stove or the grill. I was going to start sorting through magazines and ripping out the bits I want to keep/recycling the rest, but that seems a good power outage activity. There may also be dried noodle crafts (duck or Fire Lord Ozai? how do I CHOOSE?).

I wasn't terribly worried about the storm until I realized my tiny house is surrounded by large trees. Large, looming trees that regularly lose big ol' branches in blizzards and rainstorms. If you have any happy, dear-heavens-let-the-trees-stay-standing thoughts to spare, please send them toward my house. I thank you.

p.s. I really, really, really don't want a tree to fall on my house. Or my car. I should probably reorganize my pantry as a charm against such disaster.

Interestingly, I neatened up the bathroom cabinet in advance of the hurricane. I'll send the accrued luck for that towards you, as I don't mind as much if a tree falls on my car. :)
