Food Security Preparation for Hurricane Season

workshop destroyed by hurricanes 

Can you believe it’s “that time year” already? It’s time to make sure you have enough food and water on hand because we’re fast approaching the height of the hurricane season.

And when is that? It’s the last two weeks in August, and the first two weeks in September.

I know it’s comforting to have the metal shutters and the plywood on hand (that’s if the plywood hasn’t warped too badly) - but what’s even more comforting is knowing you do have enough food and water on hand to get you through a week - just in case.

Keep an Eye on NHC

I’m sure the website National Hurricane Center (NHC) gets inundated with page views, but it’s part of my daily routine, until November. Having experienced three hurricanes in one year.

While the image makes me cringe remembering all the weeks of hard labor cleaning up the crumpled workshop, it also brought home the power of Mother Nature. When you’re told to leave - please leave. It’s just NOT worth sacrificing your life to save a structure.
