Alright my friends, don’t mess with Texas weather y’all! Heavy rain is upon us in the Bayou City and it’s time to gear up. The category #3 Hurricane Harvey is expected to hit Houston on Friday and in some neighborhoods no doubt there will be severe flooding.
Besides fueling up your car (which clearly I did right away) and running to the liquor store to stock up for hunker down “hurrication purposes”, there is a great website that SERIOUSLY helps you prep for disasters including getting us all organized and safe for the wet weather. Check out www.TexasPrepares.org .
A snapshot of the extensive checklist is below (just click on it for a full view), or for better viewing and downloading purposes go to their website. Important items on there include food & water, first aid & medication, lighting, car evacuation, area shelters, pets, documents, and people with disabilities.
My husband and I talk about this all the time the weather hits. “We need to get our emergency kit together!” Procrastination does not win in this case, folks.
And finally, please be a good neighbor and remember the old boy scout motto, to always “Be Prepared”.
