Tropical Storm Bill
Like many Houstonians, I heard about the approach of Tropical Storm Bill, and I got ready.
I went to the gas station and filled the tank in my SUV.
I went to the grocery store and stocked up on bottled waters, colas and wine, as well as the kind of paper products one never wants to be without.
I went to the drug store and bought extra batteries for my flashlights and a handful of candles. I'm not taking any prescriptions drugs these days (YEA!), but I opted for an extra supply of aspirin, Advil and Tylenol - thinking, of course, that even a mild storm in the Gulf can bring on a headache.
So, for me, getting ready for a visit from Bill was easy. No big deal!
I'm ready - and waiting!
