During a Hurricane, Wishing for Another Chance

Hurricane With a hurricane on the way, you have a long list of things you wish you’d done earlier. They include:

• Installed some kind of shutters or hurricane-resistant windows

• Bought a generator to avoid the long lines at Home Depot or Lowe’s

• Bought a small air conditioner and small refrigerator to run off that generator

• Bought gas for the generator

• Had flashlights in good working order

• Had the car filled up with gas, again to avoid the long lines in case of evacuation
• Had a good supply of drinking water (1 gallon per person per day)

* Put your important papers and photos in one place in case of evacuation

• Had set up direct deposit for your income, in case of long evacuation

• Had your prescriptions filled up and handy

• For renters, you wish you had bought renter’s insurance

• What else?
