Being from Florida, I’m very accustomed to preparing for hurricanes and bad storms. Generally, my roomie and I would always stock up on our favorite junk food snacks to cancel out the scariness factor as we sat in our closet fort.
What are you planning on getting for Irene? I love any excuse to get Slim Jims and Milanos…

I’m stocking up on wine, and making some baked goods before we lose power! Oh, and making sure that we have a good supply of burger/hot dog buns – we have a TON of frozen things in our freezer, and are anticipating having to have a grilling party if we lose power for any length of time.

@greenmint: What a good idea!!! We’ve got a grill too, I just need to get buns.

Canned ravioli from Chef Boyardee – hardly ever eat it but it’s great in a hurricane pinch! Also chips, dips and party-esque food that doesn’t need to be refrigerated or heated up.

Aw nobody voted for healthy food. Haha! Doesn’t help that I am due to get my period the same day as the hurricane.

@MrsWrangler: Oooh, I completely forgot about Chef Boyardee! Way better than soup!

We always have stuff to grill. Especially since the last 2 big hurricanes my parents lost their power for 2 weeks each and had a freezer that wasn’t attached to the generator.

@greenmint: We’re anticipating grilling up our frozen foods too.
I live on the coast of NC so we’re pretty accustomed to hurricanes, but I still hate losing power! Our last really bad hurricane was in the 90s, and I remember not having power for NINE DAYS! I never want to experience that again LOL.

When I was a kid hurricane season was the only time I was allowed to eat Spaghetti-os.

i dont live anywhere close to being affected by the hurricane but i thought this would be fun anyway. i chose sensible food but replace low sodium soups with high sodium soups. bring on that salt baby!

Tequila and lemons. Bring on the storm!
(We’re in the Northeast so it probably won’t be too bad)
