Anyhow, I spent most of the day gathering items that I felt would be needed in case we needed to make the mad dash to the cellar :) All the cameras were charged. Hard drives, lap tops, that special notebook with all your important numbers, a couple changes of clothes, raincoats, shoes, water, dog food, leashes, my purse, hubby's wallet, and a few other items were all placed in the camping cooler. I thought the cooler was a good idea--you can sit on it and everything inside should remain dry--at least that was my plan.
Think hubby rolled his eyes at me a couple times as I was preparing... but ya just never know. I'm glad my efforts were for not.

|Gracie telling me I need to come in and get out of the rain.|
|Water ready for a possible power outage, bath tub was also filled.|
|Cooler packed with needed items.|
|Our safe spot is behind this freezer--under the stairs|
