    One thing I just thought of--if you are concerned about water supply fill up your bath tubs right now. That will give you extra water for dishwashing, for example.

    Susan, how are things going? We are out of power here, and BG & E's site says 46K in AA county are out of power.

    Do you have extra milk? Consider donating!

    Yikes. I am in Howard County, and so far, the power is still on. The tree in my backyard is making me nervous, so I am not sleeping in my bedroom (which is close to it), but I think we'll be fine. *fingers crossed*

    We just now got ours back! The freezer stayed frozen! My fridge's freezer stash is fine. We did OK.
