Preparing for Hurricane Irene

Well, we had an earthquake, and now Hurricane Irene is going to come blowing through our area this weekend. I'm not a happy camper. We have some things stored temporarily under tarps in the backyard. That means today and tomorrow, I have to pick through the things and save what I can, then move the remaining items closer to our already filled shed so that they have a little wind brake. I also have to secure the top of the sandbox with duck tape. I won't know about doing the windows of our house until the state sends out a warning to do so. Plus getting all the water and food bought. My biggest worry is all of our neighbors trees. They have huge old ones that hang over into our yard. I think some of those heavy branches are going to break in this storm. I do not want them coming through our roof! Say some prayers for us in the northeast. We're going to need it!
