It's starting for Florida. We get our first hurricane soon. Best wishes and fingers crossed for those of us here (and in the storm's path). I think I'll bake some muffins before we lose power. Oh, and if you have a freezer, plastic tupperware makes good ice. I have several containers in my freezer filled almost all the way with water. We usually lose power here, but not water.
If you need water, clean out some empty containers and fill them with your tap. Or if you have 1gallon or larger containers Publix has those self filling stations just inside near the carts. It's much cheaper than buying bottled water. I think it fills 1 gallon and 5 gallon containers for the price of a small bottle of water.
Remember, block ice stays frozen longer than ice cubes! (and block ice takes longer to freeze).
