I'm still not convinced that Sandy will be the Frankenstorm they predict it will be; but, currently all of the models are pointing that way. Whoa!
My Survival Tip for Sandy Area Residents - Days BEFORE you pour that last jug of water in preparation, TEST the bathtub and sink drains and repair
them if you can. There's not much worse than filling your sinks and tub with water, the storm hits, power goes out and you find your sinks and tubs
EMPTY because the water slowly drained away through faulty old tub and sink plugs.
When the tub water freezes into a giant ice cube - what do you do then? I had that happen before too.
Also, I have read you can sterilize water by putting clear plastic soda bottles filled with water in the sunlight for a few days; BUT, that also
releases the dioxins in the plastic - so - let that water 'air out' (uncapped) for several hours before drinking it. Better yet, use it for washing
dishes and drink properly bottled water.
I thank the OP for making this thread.
