Meteorologists are predicting that Hurricane Sandy, which is heading up through the Bahamas at 105 miles per hour will combine with a cold front coming in from the West and create a potentially devastating phenomenon they've terrifyingly named Frankenstorm.
Last year, when Hurricane Irene was about to hit the East Coast, Grace gave you some tips on how to survive the storm. I thought I would create my own list of things you'll need to do in order to survive the wrath of Frankenstorm.
1. Trader Joe's Box of Wine - You might not be able to leave your apartment for the duration of the storm, so you're going to want to stock up on booze. This lovely box contains 4 BOTTLES OF WINE and only costs $10. They claim it keeps the wine fresh for up to 45 days, but something tells me it won't last that long.
2. Television Show Box Set - You're going to have to entertain yourself during the storm, so you want to stock up on TV shows to watch. Me, I'm getting the complete box set of Gilmore Girls to keep me company. The only debris that's gonna be flying around my house will be the witty repartee between Rory and Lorelai!
3. Candles - You need to be prepared for emergencies during hurricanes. Candles are essential in the event that you lose power. But why just get boring old regular candles? Why not spice up your power outage? That's why I'm getting a bunch of Yankee Candles for the storm. That way if I lose power, I'll not only be able to see but my entire house will be pleasantly scented like Peppermint Bark!
That's it, that's all you need to get through Frankenstorm. Good luck and happy hurricane-ing!
