19. Gotta share one of my go to hurricane prep items

Walkie Talkies

Can be indispensable when the power goes out/cell service drops or if your family evacuates in more than one vehicle (which I do not recommend if you can avoid it).

Used such after Ike, and while driving in tandem to my SO for the 8 hour long, 50 mile trek before Rita. We got separated by a couple miles for some of those hours, but could communicate despite the pegged cell service.

Keep your wits, prepare, do things methodically, know the evacuation plan, and do not panic evacuate like we did for Rita. I'll be in contact with a good friend in Florida, will share his takes on the situation later today/tomorrow. He's, eh, seasoned in dealing with FL hurricanes.

Best wishes for y'all, hang in there, and stay safe.
