Tropical Storm Earl is upon us but so far it is just a few rumbles of thunder and some raindrops. The authorities seem prepared, however, opening emergency preparedness centers and warning people of possible power outages and to stock up on supplies and for pregnant women and the elderly to remain close to medical centers in the case of flooding.
People seemed to listen, as Mega Mart (the only supermarket open on yesterday’s holiday) was packed. We got out of there, mercifully, pretty quickly, as we had the baby with us. We did not want to be stuck without diapers! Let’s hope the storm stays mild.
