Thank you. The storm has passed our area and we are fine.

We lived through hurricane Sandy & power out for 2 weeks, so after that, a whole house generator was a must. But, whenever we go on vacation & won't be around to monitor our freezers, we just place a ziploc with ice cubes in the freezers & if they are melted when we get home, we know we had a problem. Also, fill your tub with water & try to freeze containers with water. They will keep your closed freezer colder longer. They do make portable generators that even run on propane (instead of gasoline). One could probably power your freezers so you wouldn't lose all that food. Stay safe.

I live in Australia and it's the norm for us to get a cyclone every year. We fill bath tubs and the laundry sink with water to use for flushing toilets. We have never run out but I don't have a tribe of kiddos. I hope all goes well for your family.
amy maryon (4 days ago)
I appreciate that
Essem Sween (4 days ago)
Are you filling up your bath and one sink too? The children will just have to get used to the barrels for a couple of days. Do you have wipes for hands & faces might help. Put a thick blanket on top of the food in the freezer now. It will help keep it frozen longer if it goes out, honestly it's what we were told to do during the Miner's strike. Have you thought about the fact that the entire state may be a state of emergency? What if so many roads blow out and the trucks can't get to Wal-Mart? Or so many buildings fall that the Water lines break. We once had a freak snow storm, went to bed the world was fine, woke up and there was 3 ft of snow. Now we are bang in the middle of the country in a city. The major power line was lying on the roof of next food's car, sparking like Bonfire Night, all the telephone lines were down, we couldn't drive out of the house because the car was stuck in a snow hill. It was for us only 8 days but for some? 3 wks before they got the power restored. There were Electricians sent from Ireland & Telephone engineers 2 months becore the phone was reattached. No-one could go to work because nothing worked. Life next week will not be the same as this week. I'm praying for all of you

Thanks for all the ideas.

Right, generally after a bad storm, whether a hurricane or just lots of rain and flooding, it often takes stores several days to get stock in. Last year after Hurricane Harvey (I'm in Houston and got 40" of rain at my house but no flooding) it was a couple of weeks before supplies were consistent in the stores. The trucks just couldn't get through because of all the flooding. Restaurants generally aren't going to be open either because they either don't have power or they don't have supplies. Cell phone towers generally don't work after a while either so if you don't have a land line with an old fashioned phone (not a walk around one) you're going to be out of luck. Hope you got some cash to have on hand too. ATMs won't work without power and banks will be closed, gas stations too as they won't be able to pump the gas.
amy maryon (4 days ago)
Oh good idea thanks you

We live in a cyclone area and we fill the bath tub with water to 'flush' the toilet with a bucket.

Where I live the power went out for 8 days once. I had a small chest freezer. I had a Ice cube tray of ice on top which I use all the time. When the electricity went out I put wool blankets over the freezer. When the electricity came back on, the icy cubes hadn't even melted.

If you have any solar lights, they are great and safe and kid friendly when the power goes out. Plus as long as theres some sunlight you can recharge them during the day to bring back in.

When we lived in Hawaii, on Oahu, right on the outer SW edge of Pearl Harbor, my hubs & I packed 2 large tubs of "Hurricane Emergency Supplies". He was leaving for training 2 days before we were gonna get hit by either a hurricane or a major tropical storm. So, my hubs wanted to make sure we had basic necessities, water, first aid supplies & a pump system (everytime it rained, there was ALWAYS a giant pool of water in front of our house & it would reach from the street, through the carport & onto our front lanai). For our first aid kit, my hubs put a giant cheap vodka bottle in it. He's a MEDDIC in the Army & he said that just in case the power/running water was out for however long & one of the kids got hurt, to wash the wound out with the vodka, it would disinfect the wound. *I already knew that, but I hadn't thought about including it in our kit. Also, in our 2 giant Rubbermaid boxes of kits, I included copies of all of our important documents & pics of my kids, pets, myself & the hubs & folded them into zip lock bags. We had canned meats & veggies, powdered milk, cat & dog food, paper products, plastic utensils, the 1st aid kit, powdered gatorade, dry shampoo, bodywash, hand sanitizer, toothpaste/floss, toothbrushes, hair brush, hair ties, rope, batteries, duct/electrical tape, cheap rags/towels, extra phone chargers, collapsible bowls for our pets for their food & water, extra leashes, collapsible bag for the cat, tent, bug repellant, sunscreen, flame starters, lighters, flashlights, headlamps, work gloves, life vests, small dish pan, small bag of cat litter, glow sticks, plastic bags & an epic pen. Each of our kids & us had a "go bag" packed with a weeks worth of clothes & room for them to throw in a few of their favorite items. I had a seperate bag that stayed empty but kept in the same spot for our laptops & the contents of out lock box. For pictures & documents, I have them all saved digitally. I keep a copy of our important documents to have on hand if needed. I do the individual recent pics of us & our pets for just in case the unimaginable happens and one of us gets lost. In all, everything fit into 2 of the giant blue Rubbermaid containers, each of us had 1 personal backpack, then, there was the laptop bag & 2 cases of water, 6 filled gallons of water, & 2 gas cans. Each container had an inventory sheet printed out, put into a zip lock bag & taped onto the lid. That way, I could keep track of which box was what (food, nonfood) & if any food items or batteries were getting within 3mths to expire. I would replace items that were set to expire soon. These boxes stayed in the laundry room (the room closest to the front door) & I kept a sheet of plywood on top, with 2 cases of water at all times. I also kept about 6 empty cleaned out milk jugs as well. That way, in the threat of an impending storm/hurricane, those could get filled up & we would use those hygiene & for water for the pets. My hubs helped me time our kids & I loading up & rolling out. We gathered our bags & blankets & pillows. I got mine & the laptop bag together & grabbed our medicine box in the kitchen, my older daughter got hers & helped our toddler at the time, & my son got his & the gas cans out of the storage shed on the back lanai. All of that was placed into the kitchen. Whoever was done 1st would open the back of the van & put the seat into place. Then my son & I would grab the water & push them towards the front of the van, then the big blue containers together and put them in the van, one at a time. The plywood would go on top of the containers & then the gas cans & personal bags would go in. While we were doing that, our daughters would be putting leashes on the cat & dog & the girls would get into the van. Kayla would help ravyn into her car seat, then run back into the house to grab the cat, then the dog. If Kayla was done before us, she would help with loading up the van as well. And, if there was time enough, we all knew, grab mommy's sewing machines...lol Luckily, with a hurricane, there's time to prepare. Now we live in KS & I get scared from time-to-time because there's no time to grab anything when there's a tornado. Last yr, a tornado was forming within a mile behind our house, luckily it just rolled over & never touched & didn't mature enough to cause any real damage. But just last Thursday, at around 10:30am an earthquake struck within a mile behind our home. At 1st I thought it was field artillery & they miscalculated, or a propane tank exploded. I literally saw my living room windows bow in & out. It reminded me of combat & when the artillery rounds & the missiles would land within 100m of our convoy. I never knew an earthquake could just be a big boom, I always thought it was just shaking. Anyway, sorry for rambling. I hope that typing my long-winded hurricane plan from when we lived in HI from '13-'16, helps some people with ideas. I'm not a worry wort, I have a degree in Homeland Security & Emergency Management & my hubs is NAEMT certified & is an Army MEDDIC, we just like to think ahead & be prepared. Luckily though, we never needed to use our emergency supplies. I did use almost all of it about 6mths before moved back to the mainland, but it wasn't hurricane season, so I wasn't too worried about it. Good luck & stay safe!

Praying for you and your family and everyone in the path of Florence. Here in FL we are seasoned hurricane preparedness survivors and it is amazing how little a household is inconvenienced once the preparations are in place. Little tip is that the penny on top of the water in the freezer doesn’t have to be a bucket. Just a small cup or plastic container frozen solid then the penny placed on top will be sufficient to let you know if the freezer has thawed. That’s an old RV tool we’ve used for over 30 years. Also I fill one of the bathtubs before the storm so we have plenty of water to flush and don’t forget even when the power goes out you still have battery & alternator power in your vehicles for sitting in AC, charging phones & other devices. And as you are well prepared I’m sure you will be very careful using candles. Keep in mind flashlights, battery operated candles and device screens provide plenty of light and you really will only need the lights after dusk & til morning. Oh & your empty dishwasher or washing machine are good places to store valuables or copies of insurance documents sealed in plastic til after the storm. Here’s hoping Florence’s visit is short and you and your family have some precious time and many good stories to tell after. Peace & Love my friend.

Losing power is horrible, I hate it. You never truly appreciate things until it gone. I'm praying for your family and everyone else that will be affected by this hurricane. I love how positive you are and that you have a plan set just in case. Where I live we have to deal with tornadoes and frozen ice or sleet, that causes us to loose power.

I agree with some of the other folks here it would be worth you and your husband effort to try to get you a generator big enough to run The essentials such as your refrigerator your freezer and maybe even a well pump if you have a well. It wouldn’t run everything in your house but it would run these essential things we have one me and my wife we don’t live where the hurricanes are but we do live where there are tornadoes and we also get bad ice storm in the winter time and I have a generator big enough to run this the essential things in our home so that we don’t lose our food and that we do have access to water. Just an idea not bossing you or telling you what to do just some friendly suggestions. Maybe you can look into this and will have it stored away so that you can get it out in an emergency if it comes along again sometime later on God bless hope your family and you are going to be safe and let us know how you’re doing.

Be safe, Praying for your family. We are only under a flood warning. I doubt we even get that. If we do I have insurance lol. We wont get hit til tuesday or wednesday next week. Ill get nutella, and peanut butter and fruits. Nothing big. Our stove is electric however we have a grill and a covered porch so if I have to switch porchs I can. And we have plenty of stores around. The worse we have to watch for is trees falling. Every storm we get for some reason a tree likes to fall and take out a car. I dont mind it just means a new car. Unless its like this last poison oak tree hubby was like at five am ran into the room I was asleep he says babe a tree fell on your car. Now last time a person ran in my room and said a tree fell on my car my car was brand new and the tree totaled my car and none of the insurance companies wanted to pay. So he says this and my words was yay a new car haha I go outside and the tree wedged between my windshield and the side fender medal and the ground and Amy not a scratch, not a busted windshield nothing not even the alarm went off im like are you kidding me the tree was wedged literally on my windshield and car and it didnt even scratch the paint or crack the windshield?? It didnt even set off the alarm. It didnt dent it or nothing. I was like oh yay the same car in a sarcastic voice hahahaha. I said of all trees to hit my car leave it to the poison oak tree to hit it and not do its job properly. LoL!! It was a big tree too. Yet a smaller tree fell and totalled out my new van that I just signed the papers for and crushed the roof top to hubbys van. So if it does blow pretty hard I might take the kids out of here and to a safe zone in case a tree decides to fall on the house to ensure they are safe. You stay safe. Ill keep your family in prayer.

Jenn in Kanata (5 days ago)
I think it would be good to start saving up to purchase a generator since you do huge amounts of freezer meals for the whole month. I hope that the hurricane bypasses you guys and you stay safe and it just is a storm with not much damage.
amy maryon (5 days ago)
Thank you
Luanne McCallister (5 days ago)
It's good that you won't be as affected as some. I have 3 cousins in the Jacksonville area, and they all had to evacuate with their families. Praying their homes don't get destroyed, but at least they're safe.
amy maryon (5 days ago)
Yes that is good.
20believer10 (5 days ago)
Take a Youtube break if you have to. It's understandable. Many Youtubers do it now and then. Life happens right? I also thought of maybe you could "picnic" with another group? I think that's what will be most needed in our day and time of violence. God will use you and show you you're purpose if He hasn't already.
amy maryon (5 days ago)
Yes great idea!!!
20believer10 (5 days ago)
amy maryon exchange food with another famiky? After the storm if able. I saw on the new quite a few are at home and there might be some hungry people you run across. I pray this isn't the case though and that people will be ok.
amy maryon (5 days ago)
Picnic for during the storm? Just curious as to what you were referring to. God has shown me somethings and I want to know what u are saying :)

adds jo (5 days ago)
instead of not opening the freezer why not ust use the meals so they dont go bad
Donna (5 days ago)
adds jo great idea. In FL we do that as soon as the storm passes. Neighbors all get their grills out & have big block parties cooking up what everyone has before it all defrosts. Also pulls everyone together to help clean up the debris. It smells wonderful (over the sound & smell of generators) and people are so happy and grateful to get out after being hunkered down for couple days during the hurricanes. When life gives you lemons...make lemonade.
amy maryon (5 days ago)
It's a lot of meals. If I can save them I will. But if it goes past the 3 days then we will start eating them

We live in NC north of Charlotte. We have a generator because we live out in the country and are last on the list to get our power back on, sometimes 3 or 4 days. We fill our tubs up with water for flushing the toilets. We are all cleaning the house today and going to make sure everyone gets a shower today just in case.

Praying that your power stays on ❤️You are so strong with a good attitude. Not sure how the generator situation is going to work for us.. we only bought a small portable one from Home Depot online it was about 800$ They want thousands for the big “ installed” version that would power the whole house, it would take forever to save for that. All the scary weather really makes me appreciate the good weather when we do have it.

CastleDykesFarm Thank you
amy maryon (4 days ago)
Thanks for the idea
CastleDykesFarm (4 days ago)
jensnksm Check with your local power company about inline generators. I'm in Houston and installed one after Hurricane Ike but did it privately. However, the electric company is always sending out email offers and they might do installment plans. Worth a check.
Donna (5 days ago)
jensnksm I think you will be fine with your small gennie. Just know it isn’t intended to power the whole house but it should run your refrigerators/freezers and couple of small appliances for few days. Praying you won’t be out of power as long as we were last year w Irma. It’s all doable. Be safe, Peace

Sounds like you are all prepared, I hope you do not loose your power, you have some awesome ideas, would never have thought of half of what you thought of and I am from Louisiana, but only had warning since I have been here, but my sister and husband have been thru a few, I did fly in during one but ended up stranded in Houstin for 4 days, was not fun, no one in or out, I was glad I had a few out fits in a carry on so I had clean clothes, I hope this storm with God help fizzles out, he helped it go from a 5 to a 1, praise God.

Would you ever venture into canning? It is nice to open a pressure canned chicken then potatoes and a jar of carrots...etc...so easy. It is cooked and just needs to be heated if you want it hot or eat cold such as chicken salad or potato salad. Good luck and stay safe!
amy maryon (5 days ago)
Yes canned for years!!

Fill your bathtubs with water to flush toilets. Make sure you have a small radio with batteries. Do you have a chainsaw just in case trees fall on your property? I’m thinking of your family during this time and praying.

Larissa Harrod (5 days ago)
I think you might want to invest in a generator just because you make so many frozen meals in advance it would be a good thing to have a generator just to keep your freezer and frigerators going and maybe your stove so you can cook your food but other than that you know I would worry about the essentials and to be with the way you cook having a generator should be on your list of things to get
Larissa Harrod (5 days ago)
+Donna I realize that after I watched more of the video that's why I made my second comment
Donna (5 days ago)
Hi Larissa, seems they have a gas stove and a gas grill so cooking won’t be an issue. A generator is great too. We have one that runs 3 refrigerator/freezers and a couple of fans, pool pump and last year during Irma I was even able to use my electric stovetop to cook a few quick meals like omelets and water for tea. We live and learn these things in FL.
Larissa Harrod (5 days ago)
Okay so you have a way to cook food that is awesome you have a back-up plan for that but I suggest you get a generator for your fridge and frigerators
