    It's about to get fun in the next 10 hours or so. Bought a bunch of canned meat and vegetables for the next couple of days if we lose power here on the Mississippi coast. Not thrilled about that, haven't had canned food since I started primal two years ago. Maybe I'll get to play caveman for the next two days? I hope not.

    Sorry Kyle, this old Gwamma doesn't understand. Why would you lose power?

      From the land of earthquakes to the land of hurricanes, we wish you well. I've been in more than a few hurricanes down in Mexico and I know they can get pretty hairy. Batten down the hatches and try to stay dry.

            Are you from Biloxi? Or have you moved there?

            It's only suposed to land as a 1 or low 2... not much threat at all.
            A 1-2 is just a bit of wind and rain.

            And yes I've lived coastal up there.
            A couple years in Biloxi, then a few seasons in Ft Walton Beach... Including one bad storm that nearly erased Navarre Island completely.

            Anyway... I always think it's weird when people get antsy over the little storms.
            A 3, put some water and canned goods by just in case...
            A 4... get real nervous, have your supplies, gtfo if you can.
            A 5... just GTFO. I saw Homestead AFB aftermath.

                  "MumfordLa" is a spambot, not a real person exactly... it actually quoted a piece of Paleobirds post.
                  You'll get used to those things.

                      I've only been in Biloxi for a year now, so this is my first possible hurricane. I know it's probably not going to be too bad other than a bunch of rain and storm surge causing some flooding, but it's too easy to worry.

                        I see...
                        First time!

                        You sounded a bit like a "foreigner".
                        It's good to have a closet full of water and some tins of sardines, or whatever, "just in case"...
                        But honest! There isn't much to worry about with a small storm.

                        People tend to underestimate the water they'll need and over estimate food.
                        So, water. Water. More water.
                        If you really think you'll be losing power... clean and fill your bathtubs and some 5 gallon buckets when the storm is hitting. And have bleach on hand. Remember that a little bleach goes a long way.
                        Emergency Drinking Water


                        Food such as sardines, tuna, or other fish in oil, in easy to open packets or tins... if something happens you might not be able to find the darned can opener.
                        Nuts, dried fruit, that sort of stuff if it can be reliably resealed.
                        Also, nut butters... they are dense and don't spoil, so good in a pinch.

                            i've been "lucky" in my history on the gulf coast b/c when i was a kid they would always hit LA, and we would get the clean side. So we would often lose power (b/c we lived in an area with a lot of trees) but no real damage from wind.

                            But Ike was the worst experience for me - 11 days without power! oh god it was so miserable in the condo with terrible airflow.

                            i know it's nothing compared to how people suffered so much in Florida, esp that one season where it seemed like it got hit like 5 times.

                            But i do dread the next storms and high winds - even though thousands of dead and dying trees have been removed due to the drought, they are still falling over. Really hoping no storms hit houston anytime soon.

                            hope you stay OK in MS.

                            One thing i do before a storm is brew a lot of coffee; i'll drink it cold the next day and it's good to know that there's some coffee in case you have no power. Might want to find a camping stove & get that ready.

                            other staples - beer and D-batteries (for a camping fan, radio, etc).
