How are you preparing for the Witchy Irene?

I had a FANTASTIC (add sarcasm here) morning.  First, off to the doctor for P (fever) and N (big bug bite).  All is good , no meds, bye bye $40 (copay).  Then off to hubbie's job (30 minutes away, he left his cell home), with a detour to find a Shell gas station.  For those of  you who don't know, Stop and Shop has a big promotion: spend $100 and get 100 points, which equals to $.10 off a gallon of gas at Shell.  I had 500 points which was $.50 off a gallon  (Rock on!).  I drove out of my way on empty to redeem my points and paid $3.49 a gallon.  (Freakin' Awesome price for Long Island.)  Did I forget to mention I also stopped at Dunkin Donuts to feed the crew.  Happy kids= happy life.
Then off to Stop and Shop for hurricane Irene essentials!

Here's what I got:

Don't worry everyone!  We will be well fed in my house.  
Marinated steak, chicken cutlets, veggies, cheese and crackers, and chips and dips. 
Don't forget the cookies and M&Ms.   
And of course whipped cream. Can't have a hurricane party without it!

I also earned 240 points this shopping session, which equals $.20 off gas. 
I know, I should have used coupons.  
Maybe next time!

How are you preparing for Irene's arrival?
