Well, it's almost hurricane season, and with that comes various things to think about when it comes to prepping for a storm. Think about it, wouldn't it be easier to get at least a list together so you don't have to scramble if a storm is approaching?

Many people wait until the last minute to prepare for a storm. They do that for a variety of reasons. I wait often because I just don't want to have to think about it. The reality is that many families don't have extra money or time to think about things they might need to buy or prepare for before a storm.

Having written that, there are some things we all need to think about when hurricane season starts. You may not be able to afford to buy anything, but you can at least think about the many things that are part of hurricane season. If you have never evacuated, would you know where to go and which roads to use? There are signs along the major highways, but have you given any thought to where you are going to go when a storm is coming?

If you have flood insurance do you have any idea where that policy or a copy of the policy might be? If you are the victim of damage or flooding, it sure is handy to have a copy of your policies.

Have you looked around your house to see if there is anything that you can clean up now and now when a storm is coming? I battle with this one quite frequently since I am not one of those people that likes to do things in the backyard other than sitting on my patio listening to the radio. I hate to have to move stuff around, but I am starting to make a mental list of the things I could do now, so I won't have to do it when a storm comes.

Attorney General Jeff Landry has some ideas about hurricane preparation that we might not think of before a storm is coming. This isn't the list of water and canned food. This is another list, but one that aims, just the same, to help us.
