We’ve been worried with this NK thing as well.
We purchased 3 cases of water at Costco on Saturday as we are looking at a major hurricane in the SE as well. Picked up jugs of water too which I like for cooking. We will use our rain barrel water for toilet flushing.
Sadly, due to weather, our solar has not been installed. Clear weather is needed and it wasn’t clear last week, so they are looking at next week….after the hurricane
We had wood shelving built in our utility room, the poly is drying as I type. In a couple days, we will be able to move stuff into there. We live in a small house so we needed more storage space as my walk in pantry is full to the gills.
The muscadines did very well this year. For August I was able to can 24 half pints of jelly/jam and 6 quarts of juice blend. The Scuppernongs are late so I was able to make 7 half pints of jam on Monday. This is it for the grapes. Still a few on the vine for fresh eating but not enough to do any more preserving.
I have taken inventory in the pantry and resupplied a few things. We will go out tomorrow and that will be the last time we go until after the storm. We figure IF it heads our way, people will be going nuts by Friday. Hubs started the generator up yesterday, started on the first crank. It’s a Honda we bought when Katrina hit MS and it is still going strong. We will bring everything we might need to the house in case it floods. Our main worry is power outage due to wind and minor flooding.
We will get in the 50s tonight so I am expecting the peppers to be done. I have been picking gypsy and green peppers and freezing them cleaned and cut. They will make great stuffed peppers over the winter. The last of my container tomatoes are almost ready to pick, no new blossoms.
Oh, also got my Rx filled yesterday, got some Aleve, anti itch cream and bar soap (on clearance) at WM.
