Despite the rain, thunder and lightning, dressing for weather doesn’t have to be a drag.
. Inexpensive umbrellas
. Wellies or rainboots
. Sperry’s for guys or girls
. Rubber flip-flops
. Waders (if the H20 gets that deep)
. Raincoats (avoid pricey brands)
Non-perishable foods that won’t threaten your appetite:
. Chocolate chip cookies
. Chips and salsa
. Mixed bags of candy
. Teddy grahams
. Mixed nuts
If you’re a health nut, stock up on rice cakes, organic chips, 100-calorie snack packs, non-salted nuts and dried fruits.
Buy candles with a muted smell like vanilla or sandalwood to mask the smell of rotting food, body odor and flood water.
Load different music onto a charged iPod to help take the brain off the heat if electricity is lost.
. Jack Johnson
. The Shins
. Foo Fighters
. Black Eyed Peas
. Scissor Sisters
