there was a topic of the morning on the Sam and Ryan show on 93.9 this morning. it was "what do you hate most about hurricane prepping in Hawaii?"
most people called in and said something to the effect, 'I hate the price gouging, or long lines, or their sold out, or people buying 10 or more cases of water at a time, etc.....'
we had all year to prepare for hurricane season. if you're getting the price gouging or long lines or any of the other reasons, sorry but its YOUR fault for waiting until the last minute to prepare.
I always have multiple water cases on hand bc I use them anyways and buy a lot when they go on sale. also have a lot of MRE's, mountain house dehydrated food, canned goods, protein powder, protein bars, water bob, etc.
there's always a few things that I don't have, but they are pretty not essential things. but I'm pretty prepared all the time.
I think I've watched all the episodes of Doomsday Preppers on the history channel (I know this show is mostly entertainment and not factual), and I've always thought that here in Hawaii doomsday will be a hurricane or tsunami. those are things are inevitable, so everyone that lives here should be always prepared for it.
