I trust all survived the storms. It was a big one, but nothing we couldn’t handle. All the hype made it feel like we could all die any time. I must say it is beyond me why people run to the grocery store the minute they threaten us with a storm. Doesn’t anyone have any food stored for emergencies? We always have a store of rice and beans and some canned goods to get by with. I did not live through the depression, but my parents and grandparents did and they taught us to have the basics stored for emergencies. Or maybe I learned that later. In any case, we do have rice and beans and a few other staples. Which in our case, includes popcorn.
