Just a word of advice...FREEZE WATER while you can! Get every tupperware or plastic jug and fill it with water and toss it in the freezer. When Hurricane Isabel hit the east coast I was far enough inland to not get any damage...but the electricity was off for over a week. Everything in the fridge rotted and I ended up having to throw away a lot of the stuff in the freezer. If I had ice I would have kept the freezer cold or I could have put food in a cooler. Also, if you have a grill make sure you have propane or charcoal. When the power went off our electric stove didn't work. So we spent the week grilling up the food from the freezer before they spoiled. We had water since we were on city water, but if you have a well make sure you have bottled water. I hate hurricanes.
