Hurricane Box

One of the fun parts of moving to Florida includes putting together a hurricane box- a box of food and supplies that are there "just in case." I am new to this experience. But, on the advice of a colleague, I went out today and (in addition to picking up Tiger Woods 09) put together my first hurricane box. It contains:

  • Frosted Mini-Wheats
  • Pop Tarts
  • Cereal Bars
  • Graham Crackers
  • Wheat Thins
  • Triskets
  • Tuna Fish
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Pineapple
  • Canned Pears in Light Syrup
  • Apple Juicy Juice
  • Peanuts (Lightly Salted)
  • Mixed Nuts (Lightly Salted)
  • Werther's Hard Candies
  • 3 Gallons of Water
  • Dog Food

My goodness, I'm so proud of myself I almost hope we're without power for five days so we can put that box to use.

I love to think about how dehydrated you'd be if you ate all of that stuff and only had three gallons of water -- but then, if there's a hurricane, I guess dehydration won't be a problem?

How's T-Woods? I'm not buying '09 yet because I thought '08 was like the perfection of the genre; and until I see some kinds of MAJOR changes, I'm not planning on buying.

I can't imagine how busy you are right now, man -- between teaching, and doctors, and hurricane boxes. Hope stuff's good.

Can I suggest adding some powdered milk to the box. All of that cereal and those pop tarts and no milk??? Oh yeah, and Rowan might want some too :-)

On Tiger Woods 09:

If you bought 08, then I wouldn't buy 09. Its a solid game, but I wouldn't say it adds anything to the overall table.

I bought 09 for the improved Wii controls. They're better, but still not the "one-to-one" swing we were promised. Your golfer does follow your movements, but to hit a weaker shot (say 50% of power) you have to move the controller so minimally that its ridiculous. I'm hoping this gets better in the future...
