Keep in mind that a well stocked pantry can come in handy in more ways than one. Canned goods make dandy "risers" to keep the legs of your furniture above water if it invades your house. Obviously won't do too much for major flooding, but can prevent a lot of damage if you just have a few inches seep in.

All I need to pick up tonight is fuel for the generator. Loss of power is my biggest concern. Ammo I got. The bread is probably already soldout!

Orlando will be on the "back side" of Isaac, and the outer bands on the back side are really dangerous with spin off tornadoes and nasty wind. After the 2004 hurricanes, this one should be a slam dunk for us here in Central Florida, but I still take it very seriously. Being without power in August in Florida is one of the most miserable times in my entire life. No A/C for 17 days back in 2004 after Charley.....and had no preparation because everyone said, "Hurricanes never hit Orlando".

Since we were hit by Rita and Ike,we keep a supply of the small propane bottles,typically found at Wal Mart ,with a little burner that screws on top. Really handy.

Hints on using the WaterBob bath tub bladder
I’ve used the water bob for real in both an emergency situation and one where the water company had to shut down the water for an entire week. Again, from personal experience, people that live in upper stories of condo/apartment buildings will find they have no water when the power goes out in the storm.
The box size is about the size of a shoe box and stores easily. It is compressed and packed well, so if you open the box to check it out, it will be difficult to get it folded again tight enough to reinstall in the box.
A couple of hints:
• Getting the bladder to lay as flat as possible when starting to fill it up will be a big help. Once you get a few inches of water in it, it is almost impossible to move/adjust because of the dead weight.
• Notice in the video that the girl holds the filler tube to the tub spigot. This is almost a requirement. The force of the water filling the bladder will push the filler tube off of the spigot, even with a tight cable tie. Remember to fill only with cold water.
• There is a small siphon break on top of the squeeze tube for starting the siphon action. Make sure that siphon break cap is securely fastened and finger tight. If you don’t check it, the cap may not be screwed tight and the siphon action won’t work properly.
• If you try to use the Waterbob again, you have to siphon almost all of the water out of it first. As mentioned above, just a few inches of water will make it almost impossible to move. The only way to empty it, other than by siphon, is to be able to turn the bladder on its side so the water can empty out of the access holes on the top. (There are 2 access holes with screw caps, one for the filling tube, and one for the siphon knob). Waterbob recommends using the bladder only once.
From a practical point, that recommendation is moot. Even with just a little water in the bag in a small area like a bath tub, it’s almost impossible to move to a position where you can empty the bladder.
I finally gave up on trying to use mine twice. I sliced open the bladder and recycled the plastic.
All in all, a great product.

I have GOT to get me some waterbobs. I've got 4 tubs, so I should be able to be set for a while if I had several of them.

It didn't make sense to me either when I grew up in the North East, who want french toast when your stuck at home? Steaks, Brats, Chocolate cream pie, Booze and junk food are the way to go.

Make sure u have a manual can opener and matches in a dry place. Usually if the roof stays put all u have to worry abt is power outages that is if ur not living in a flood prone area.

For many years in college in FL, my combo was a P89 and a PC9 carbine, same magazines and ammo. They are pretty decent if you can find one used.
Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

I tell you what, when it comes to bringing my long guns with me in an evacuation, I have now replaced my plastic cases with a somewhat lower profile double long gun case from 511 Tactical, which contains compartments to fit a shotgun and an M-4 rifle. Also has additional pockets for other acessories too. :)
