Ya'll in NC and VA batten down the hatches!! My father in law in the outer banks says he's riding it out!!! 80-90 mph winds expected..he's been through 120 mph winds there though and says he can handle it....take care and be careful.

Re: Hurricane is coming. I AM NOT PREPARED!

Emergency food
Water
Guns & Ammo
Night Vision - had to use it during the last big one :-)
Generator
Gas
Lots of flashlights and batteries
Solar chargers for phones
Solar radio and flashlight combo

One thing overlooked by many is a garage door brace that helps to keep the garage door from caving in which is really important if you have a attached garage. Manufactured braces cost several hundred dollars so I made mine a few years ago on a Saturday with supplies from Home Depot.

I basically copied what they made in the link below and mine bolts down into the concrete as well.

Amazon Prime Membership. It's $79 a year, and you get free two day shipping on pretty much everything on Amazon.

Genorator Check
Battery Back Up System Check
Water Purifier Check
Extra clothes Check
Food Check

Pretty much everything you need...Local Walmart sold out? As long as you have a few days...you can have everything you need delivered to you. (granted...if the storm has already hit...you're kinda SOL if the roads are impassable)

It more than pays for itself if you sign up when you are buying all the stuff you wish you had on hand months ago.
