Joey "Deez" Blog "Storm Crazy"

It’s Friday, which means it’s time to get ready for the weekend but this is no ordinary weekend.  If you haven’t been watching the news lately, it’s looking like Seattle may be getting one of the worst storms its seen in over 50 years on Saturday. Now these types of things generally tend to get over-hyped, but it does look like many people will be losing power. So if you’re one of those people who like to be over prepared for things, I suggest thinking of some fun way to pass the time, and of course, stock up on food and water. I lost power last year during a smaller wind storm and I won’t lie, it was brutal. Waking up in a freezing house with a fridge full of rotting food is no way to start a day, let alone a weekend. Before you know it, panic begins to set in when you start to think about going multiple days without the internet. Luckily I had a couple of roommates tell help pass the time, mostly with beer and board games. There are definitely worse things you could spend your weekend doing. I’ll admit though, when that internet came back on, I did a powerful jump for joy. Unfortunately, this resulted in an embarrassingly epic fall that nearly broke a table. If this was a football game, I would have easily gotten flagged for excessive celebration. Totally worth it.

 

Are you prepared for the storm this weekend? What’s if your favorite thing to do when the power is out? ​
