I didn’t go so far as to make a kit and pack stuff to go since I wasn’t in an evacuation zone - mandatory or recommended. I did make myself a mental list and moved a few things into a just in case pile. The pile didn’t have the necessities in the traditional sense, it had a sketchbook, watercolor pencils, and my reminders on practicing mindfulness packet from taking the “Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction” course. I sort of also figured if I had time I’d grab the Kindle eReader and the three small art quilts that I’ve been stitching on with related supplies.

I'll leave you with the loving kindness meditation on one of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course worksheets that seems appropriate in the wake of Hurricane Sandy:
"May I be safe and protected from all inner and outer harm
May I be peaceful and happy
May I be as healthy and as strong as is possible for me
May I care for myself with joy and ease."
