Our mayor has already declared a state of emergency. He got a lot of flack during the last storm. A lot of folks went for days without electricity. People have been told to stay off the streets unless it is an emergency. All streets are to be cleared of autos. Not may of our residnets have autos, but there is enough parking in both front of the building as well as the back. So they shouldn't have a problem. I am all set for food. All our wiring is underground, so we should be holding on with electricity, heat, etc. I have never had a problem with my cell phone. But the atmosphere is raising heck and I keep breaking up. I just hope it is working if I need to make a 911 call. If not, I have my "Help, I have fallen and I can't get up" piece of equipement as a backup. I should get a call from the mayor's office at the hight of the storm checking on me to make sure I am all right. Something his Office of Elderly Affairs does everytime there is an emergency.
I normally take these storms in stride and just poo poo the weather reports. But I am older now. More than ever I depend on the services for the elderly. Can they meet my needs during a storm? I hope I never have to find out.
Will stay in touch and let you know how we are fairing.
