Well, I'm supposed to be sitting on a plane heading to California to visit DW's family. Luckily Hurricane Ike has rescued me. grin

Wife in kids are currently on the jet whie I've stayed behind to hold the fort. Considering we get our preps ready May 1st, all I need to do is move the potted plants out of the yard and maybe secure some stuff inside. I have custom plywood covers for the windows which I'll probably put up just for the practice. The only problem I foresse is my bottle of Maker's Mark whisky is almost empty! eek

Hopefuly things aren't nuts at the liquor store...

I'll post my experiences, assuming I don't lose power.

I'm sure OBG and Wildman took the bottles of Makers Mark I had packaged and ready to send you to the UPS store. Anyway they said they would. grin

Blast,
Run don't walk to Speck's as fast as you can. At 9:45AM there was a line of about 20 people waiting for the opening.

Man, every time I think I'm making some progress working down my preparedness list, you guys teach me about something else I need.

Now where are those DIY Home Distillery plans in the Long-Term Preparedness archives...? (I don't even want to think about the Bug-out Still Camelbak thingamajigs ideas you might have.)

Great Scott!!! No reserve bourbon with the bug in supplies? eek

I keep a couple of bottles of the GOOD stuff tucked away. I figure when bugging in I will, at least, have one small treat to look forward to. wink

Good Luck Blast!! Looks like Ike is coming too close for comfort. Hopefully you won't sustain any damage. This thing looks quite impressive. Again, Good Luck!!

I did. Now, if it had been some rum or vodka, that is another thing entirely. Or scotch, my wife likes scotch. But I still love her...

I've gotten into the bad habit of driving around on less than half a tank of gas. Today has taught me the error of my ways. I finally found a place that still had some and, after I'd waited in line for thirty minutes, wound up buying the last of their supply. What a charmed life I lead.

Be safe, Blast.
