I would like to thank you for your quick response to and preparation for Hurricane Gustav. I would like to propose the following additions and changes to the handbook your offices published to help Louisianians prepare for natural disasters. Those changes are as follows:
1. add lysol or air freshener; things stink after a few days without power. In fact, change "candles" to "scented candles" and it would be great too.
2. eliminate thermal underwear from the list, unless the natural disaster is the next ice age we won't need that here
3. eliminate "whistle" from the list of supplies. Of course if one evacuates to Alaska to run a dog sled they may need this AND the thermal underwear. The compass would be really handy then too.
4. add earplugs. It is really annoying to hear your neighbors' generators when you don't have one. These could also come in handy if your children start whining.
That is it for now. I will let you know if I think of other ways to help you do your job. Thanks again!
Cullen and Carson dressed themselves in what they deemed to be hurricane attire. I think the goal was to protect themselves from flying glass (something they learned from the news). Then they proceded to sit by their bedroom window all day and play their Nintendo DS games.
This is what Lila mostly did during the storm. She also ate a little. It was one of her calmest days, actually! Her onesie says "what a beautiful world", which I thought was a positive way to look at life!
