First of all I want to thank Ivy for managing our site for the duration of my 4,000 mile round trip to the Midwest. Mr. Heather was lucky enough to join us for the return trip and was able to experience the magic that is traveling with three children under five. Let me assure you, a good time was had by all.
Living in the Lowcountry I’ve observed two aspects for preparedness, necessity and comfort. I covered necessary preparations early in the season and with Hanna looming in the Atlantic I am battening down the hatches. We live far enough inland that the storm surge is not a threat, but we are preparing for what may be several days without power.
My plans for this week include:
- Cycling all laundry so nothing will mildew waiting for the power to return.
- Putting fresh sheets on all beds. Without power nights can be pretty sticky.
- Boredom prevention: new books for Mr. Heather and I, a few crafts and small surprises for the kids
So, tell me Home Eccers, after safety has been taken into consideration, what would you add to the list?
