Prepping for Isaac

SDP  8-26-12
Most people seem to be taking the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac seriously. Hurricane supplies were running low at many stores, like this Target, where the water shelves were pretty bare. I was there yesterday afternoon to pick up dish detergent (can't have dirty dishes during a storm!), but realized I needed spare batteries for my large flashlight. I ended up at Home Depot, where was the scene was the same: slim pickins. The storm veered to the west a little last night which is good news for Florida but we still are expecting winds in excess of 75 mph, 8-10 inches of rain, flooding and possible tornados. I expect to be called into work during the storm today...at least into tomorrow. Keep Florida in your thoughts and prayers.
