View Full Version : Hurricane #3 HELP
09-09-2004, 11:48 AM
I am soooo sressed out we are getting ready for hurricane number 3 ! My prayers to evryone else in Florida preparing and too all those in the islands allready so drastically hit. Hey maybe this i snot off topic, but anyone got any advise how to eat IC friendly on hurricane supplies. We went without power for several days and I ate a lot of bad things and kept drinking soda (it was cold the water was not). We were at my mom and dad's-they were not in the direct path. I am just so stressed and nervouse and anxiouse. I hate being cooped in for so many days with NO way out. Atleast duringa flare I know I can still get into that world out there if I want during a hurricane the world is just not available! UGH.
Prayers to all waiting on this Hurricane! :pray: :pray:

I do have one suggestion --- buy some bottled spring water and chill it so you'll have something to drink.
And I'll say a prayer that this one misses Florida!

I have just returned from Florida on holiday(???). We started in Daytona and was evacuated. We could only find a hotel in Orlando as everyone was leaving there to go north. Our airlines told us to go to St. Petes to fly us out and when we arrived the airport closed. We again had to search for a hotel. Then we sat through the tropical storm in Tampa with the flooding and no electricity. The airline then said they would fly us out again from ST. Pete's but I said how is that going to happen with the roads flooded out. Then they sent us back to Orlando to fly out on standby. We had to drive through the rain bands again and the tornado warning areas. Our hotel had electrical live wires hanging from it and a transformer blew. When we did get out, not all our luggage did left the airport so we are still waiting for it. I came home with the flair of my life. I had to see my doctor who gave me a muscle relaxant to help release my pelvic floor muscles. It just felt like it was on fire. WHEN SOME PEOPLE STRESS THEY CLENCH THEIR TEETH, I NOW have DISCOVERED I MUST CLENCH MY PELVIC FLOOR.
I only pray that you do not get hit again. It certainly sounds like a very scary storm.
I lived 5 days in a hotel room with no fridge and cooking facilites and the restaurants closed three of those days. I lived basically on bottled water, peanut butter, and low carb bread. The good thing was I lost 5 pounds.
Stay safe, Maureen

My prayers are with all in hurricanes path. We just got the tail end of Frances the last 48 hours! Yikes were far from florida and it caused havic here, No school today only day 3 (lol) many roadways are under water and houses flooded. 3 local towns were in a state of emergency. I could not imagine it being like florida and having 3 back to back hurricanes.They said there hasnot been that kind of flooding here in 20 years.
Many many prayers..

My thoughts and prayers are with all in the path of this ferocious storm.
Just a few ideas for IC-friendly foods to stock up on: As Donna suggested, lots of bottled water (freeze some now so that you will have some that will be cool longer), carrot sticks and fresh veggies in a baggie with a few drops of water will stay fresh for little awhile, peanut butter and IC-friendly crackers, if you can tolerate canned tuna (IC-safe and preferably with no soy added) that would be handy, IC-friendly plain pita bread for sandwiches with the tuna or peanut butter, any chips you tolerate well, almonds....and I really like Katrina's suggestion of white chocolate!

Prayers to everyone in Florida with the onset of another hurricaine. My mom and dad live in Florida and got nailed by Frances. I guess I'll be glued to the weather channel and CNN again this weekend.

Prayers for all of you in Florida.
food suggestions: dried blueberries without preservatives last a long time. Any kind of nuts you could eat like almonds or sunflower seeds; Kashi cereal (the cheerio looking kind are easier to stomach without milk)

Thanks for all the prayers. We were hit pretty bad in northeast Florida. My neighborhood had a few trees go down, but no major damage. I know that there are many others in Fl not as lucky as I was. I'm praying for you. Lets all pray that Florida has no more hurricane as well as all the islands out in the carrabiean. Chelsey
