Prepping for Tsunami

February 27, 2010

First of all, let this be notice to all of my friends and family that I and Chris are very safe, high and dry, and plan to watch for the tsunami from Kukuiolono Golf Course which has a high elevation and a great view of the Pacific Ocean.  I plan to have my camera in tow.

No tsunami yet.

Preparation for disaster doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive.  We filled some empty bottles with drinking water, filled all of our trash cans with water for toilet flushing and bathing if needed.  We have plenty of food on hand that can be eaten without cooking.  Peanut butter, saltine crackers, canned meats, canned beans, cereal, peanuts all are pretty inexpensive and we don’t have to cook.  I’ve cooked up a big pot of rice as well, ah so Hawaiian I’ve become.  We also have our garden and fruit to fall back on.  I’m cooking up the ground beef from  the fridge and making Chris his favorite, meatballs.   Just in case we have no electric the meatballs will be made and we can simply heat them up on the car engine.  We have a cooler ready for the other things in the fridge.  I made sure we had plenty of gas.  We’re charging the cell phones.  I think the only thing we are lacking is C batteries for our radio, oh well, the car radio will have to do..

Grocery stores are limiting customers to 2 cases of spam per person.  Hawaiians sure love their spam.  Please check out this fun link about spam
