We have a catastrophic hurricane by the name of Irma headed our way in less than 36-48 hours. The storm has already crashed through Puerto Rico and has left its path throughout Dominican Republic, Haiti, and a few other places in the Caribbean islands.
I can’t lie we are pretty nervous. Due to the size of this hurricane taking over the entire state of Florida will feel its wrath. I feel we have been given a sufficient amount of time to prepare.
The hurricane madness has been real. The hunt for gas, food, and other resources has confirmed the severity of this storm.
Evacuation orders are already in full affect. To see evacuation zones please click link below:

Let’s talk about supplies. I recommend all non-perishable items to be on top of your supply list.
Here’s a few others:
Water ( Bottled Water, Gallons, Filled the tub halfway with water, if you have clean containers put water from the faucet now while the water is safe to drink)
Bread (This seems to be a hot commodity. Please keep in mind that bread will only last the first few days during and after the storm)
Dry Foods (Crackers, Cookies, Nuts, Cereal, Chips, other little snacks)
Gas (per the news you can use the Gas App to see where there is available gas stations to get fuel. Gas is important in the need of instant evacuations)
Other Supplies (Diapers, Tissue, Wipes, Prescriptions, Board Games, Flashlights, Batteries, etc)
**If you are using a generator (DO NOT USE INDOORS)***
**Use waterproof or ziploc bags to protect any important documents you may have to take with you through flood zones***

My family and I are finishing up last minute errands. Would you believe we had everything but bread. Luckily we were able to go get bread from Publix Bakery this morning. I pray we all get through this storm. Prayers of protection for everyone reading this and your loved ones. If you are traveling, I wish you safe travels to and from.
Florida has endured a lot and we will get through this together.
