Sandy has arrived in York County and many have already lost power, leaving them limited on their food options (especially if they cleaned out their fridge before the storm hit).
I left York on Friday afternoon to visit a childhood friend down south, and although I knew Sandy was heading our way, I didn’t worry too much about my travel plans, as I was supposed to return from Clemson, S.C. tonight.
As you might have guessed, I am stranded, and will be for the next couple of days.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
In my nonchalance in regards to the storm, I failed to properly prepare my apartment for an extended power outage when I return. I have about ten bottles of water, a partial bag of pretzels and a jar of Nutella. I think I’ll be OK, at least for a day, when I get back.
But, if I had been smart enough to stock up on emergency food supplies, I would have probably grabbed the following:
-Lots of water
Those foods are all ready-to-eat, and give me some breakfast options in addition to snacks, even some protein power (the beef jerky and peanut butter). It doesn’t have to be a total carb overload.
Hopefully when I get back (keep your fingers crossed for a Wednesday evening flight!), the worst of the storm will have passed and even if I don’t have power, I will be able to grab a couple of essentials.
What foods did you stock up on?
