Dorian comes, we hunker down

We are making preparation for the approach of this storm.

Although it's not at all clear where the storm will go, Floridians are taking this seriously.

As well we should.

We're well prepared here, what with our two burner, propane camp stove, tons of AA batteries, flashlights, lanterns aplenty and even a dependable, 10 inch battery-powered fan.

Did I mention our three burner propane grill with oven capability? Got lots of propane, too.

We've got eight gallons of fresh water, a pool for grey water and the flushing of toilets and so on.

Oh, and a good, old-school, battery-powered radio which gets AM, FM and even short wave broadcasts.

Sad to say, the battery-powered TV is still in storage.

But we've got this.

So if the D-man comes our way, we're about as well-prepared as we could be.

And if not, we'll be ready for the next one.
