Today's post is a little personal. As you all know we're currently in hurricane season and if you live in a hurricane prone state like I do (South Carolina) this is NOT always your favorite time of year.
After seeing the devastation in Houston and surrounding areas that were affected by Hurricane Harvey, it has me a little shook that Hurricane Irma is one the strongest hurricanes on record. So after waking up from a nap on Wednesday evening, I heard the governor declaring a state of emergency as a precaution for South Carolina. Not the thing I wanted to hear. Lets be honest here storms can be terrifying.

I remember later that night (Wednesday) on the 11 pm news they were saying that it's normal to have PTSD or anxiety about this hurricane, especially after the flood in 2015. People including myself are still rebuilding our lives after being flood victims. Then there was that mentioning of Hurrricane Hugo back in 1989 that devestated my state, especially on the coast. I don't remember anything about that hurricane since I was only 3 years old, but my mom has always said it was a terrifying experience and they left without power for about 2 weeks.
I feel like I've been glued to the TV keeping track of this storm especially since the path changes constantly. South Carolina is expected to get heavy rain and winds and possible tornadoes on Monday, but that doesnt mean the path won't change. I'm hoping and praying which ever route this storm goes that it won't cause too much devastation.
Even if this storm doesn't cause too much damage, it's still good to be preprared since there will be other future hurricanes. In my house we prepare for hurricane season every year. I just need to find my flashlight! I live in an area that doesn't normally doesn't evacuate (well unless your in a mobile home). I already have water the pantry so thankfully I didn't have to search for that. I did stock up on non perishable foods incase the lights go out.

This was the situation at Walmart. As you can there wasn't any water .
