Big storm is-a coming. I’ll take in the clothes. I’ll being in the beans and pick tomatoes. I’ll tie down the deck chairs and lay down the umbrella. I’ll plug in the generator and stock up the refrigerator. I’ll keep an eye out for alligators (No wait, that was another place and another storm) I’ll read my news aggregator before the web shuts down. I’ll check on the gin, the makings for biscuits and make sure the lard hasn’t gone bad. I’ll lay out my books and paper and pencil. I’ll line up my lights and batteries on the side. I’ll prime the oil lamp, lay out the cards, dominoes and the hard candy.

It could be worse. It might be worse. Be ready for what it can do, not what I think it’ll do.

That’s what I always say.
