We are now in Hurricane Watching Mode. Above is our local news, below is National Hurricane Tracker.
I marked where we are on both. If it follows above track, we will get wind and rain, if it follows below we will get LOTS of wind and rain.
IF it makes a right turn, and they are famous for making sudden turns then
The thing is...... no one knows where Isaac goes..... so we all Watch and Wait.......
In 2005, we bought this little TV/Radio and TEN batteries.... never used it yet, and the batteries expired in 2009 PLUS the TV no longer will work due to the digital changes. We checked it, radio works, car or batteries. woo hoo
Friday AM we stocked up hurricane supplies for 2 weeks, the first thing on the list, was Batteries. This morning at 5 AM we went to Walmart and bought the below batteries. 40 dollars worth.. the small one on the left was 12, those are hearing aid batteries for the aid my husband broke and glues back together that no longer HEARS very well.
I know this because the TV is blasting as I type.
I am pondering this... Why of Why do they put 8 C batteries in a pkg when I need 10
and 4 in the D when I need 3.... Yes, someone has suggested solar flashlights, no we have not purchased one.
Tricks of the trade, see above..... I have 8 of these cans, we use them for all kinds of things from sugar to flour..... I can't bear to throw them away.... so IF Isaac heads this way, the 8 of them will be filled with water and stacked to use for flushing the commode.... that is my trick for today... write this down.
