As we all start to batten down the hatches, please be sure to check on your neighbors and make sure everyone is prepared for whatever Florence may bring us. If you waited to go out for supplies and discovered that stores were out of water, do what we did years ago - fill containers, fill pots, and fill the bathtub. You can use that tub water to flush the toilet. They are saying we could possibly be without power for weeks, so make sure you have flashlights and batteries ready. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best!
