Items Needed for Hurricane Preparedness (IMO)

(Please don't let this come off flippantly, I sincerely hope that EVERYONE is safe and that no-one has any damage to any of their property.)

As I am sure that EVERYONE knows by now, the East Coast is about to get/is getting slammed by Hurricane Irene. The media is causing their usual panic, although I suppose there is some cause this time. It seems like every news station, every radio station, every internet news site, etc is giving lists of some sort. They all mention the boring . . . ahem, important . . . items: non-perishable food, water, flashlights, charged cell phones, and the like.

But what about the good stuff?

I mean, if the power is going to be out for a couple of days and your domicile isn't blown away, how are you going to spend your time? My two recommendations are books and games! I have a couple of books from the library that I haven't read yet and Peter and I will delve into our cabinet of board games. Catherine will continue to reek havoc on everything that she can reach and probably (hopefully) won't notice anything amiss.

So, everyone out there, while you are gathering the "important" stuff don't forget something to keep you entertained!
