The fact that no hurricanes have threatened my area doesn’t change the fact that it’s Hurricane Season. Check out the dates for your area at the National Hurricane Center.
Last year I posted…”Prepping My Upright Freezer for Hurricane Season.” It’s full of great tips. Unfortunately I haven’t followed my own advice this year, yet.
Right now the freezer is filled with water and bread which last well and keep the freezer operating efficiently. But over the last couple of months I’ve bought some frozen fruit and meat on sale, they’re not very grill friendly. Remember hurricanes often mean no electricity.
So my goal over the next couple of weeks will be to eat the chicken breasts and pork roast. I’m starting tonight with a new chicken recipe. And sometime this weekend I’ll buy some more drinking water, that way if the power goes out we’ll have water to drink while waiting for the frozen water to melt.
Remember everyone should stockpile three days of drinking water and canned food for emergencies!
