I am writing this on Sunday anticipating a possible loss of power for a day or two. Right now, my two cents on “Frankenstorm” is it is a bit overrated. Don’t get me wrong, I think it will cause some damage (especially in and around New Jersey), but I also think the media enjoys hyping it up for ratings. I went out on Friday morning and bought a package of extra batteries, a case of bottled water, and paper plates and cups (stinky dishes that sit are the worst), but that is pretty much the extent of my preparation.
My husband and I were discussing whether or not it is a good idea for the media to go on and on about the storm. Yes, we need to be warned, be prepared, and take it seriously. However, is the constant coverage causing some people to overreact?
As much as I will hate being without power. It is probably a good time to get back to the basics. When is the last time your family played a board game? An electronics free day or two might be good for all of us. A few supplies, a deck of cards, and a board game or two may actually turn into making great memories of when we all experienced “Frankenstorm”. Stay safe!
