1. Coupla thoughts....

Depending on your blood-thinning prescription and where you can get it filled, some prescriptions filled for 90 days actually come out cheaper than buying it 30 days at a time. Might be worth looking into, and it definitely pays to call around for the prices. Learned that the hard way with one of mine...had a 20 dollar difference in prices.

Having a supply of water nearby doesn't necessarily mean it won't be contaminated with lots of nasty things that filters just can't handle. I'm thinking oil and gasoline,etc. Of course, filling up 5 gallon buckets adds to your water bill, though. Catching pre-storm rain water might be an option.

This storm really has me thinking about other ways I need to prepare. High on my list is acquiring more 5 gallon buckets.
I've got some 5 gallon buckets I got from a bakery, and have some promised from a chinese restaurant. Food grade, with rubber seal and free.
