The weather stations of the area have done an amazing job informing everyone of the storm, many of the stations were predicting the storm as early as last Saturday. When stations are warning of a storm almost a week in advance my storm preparation goes in to effect. I made sure that I had plenty of insulin, test strips and pump supplies to get me through a week. This morning I went to the store at 7am to get all of the food essentials. I got plenty of juice and non perishable food items in case we are without power for a couple of days. Also all of meters have a new battery just in case. I believe I have all of the supplies that I will need.
As I was writing this article I checked Facebook and saw this nice article from Joslin. http://blog.joslin.org/2013/02/blizzard-watch-in-new-england-be-prepared/ It scares me a little bit that Joslin the diabetes experts, are telling people to be prepared for the worse. My phone also just went crazy warning me that we are now in a blizzard warning!!! Thank you for scaring the crap out of me weather channel app!!! I will be sure to keep everyone up to date on how things go and I wish the best for all of our friends that live right near the beach.
