Hurricane Ike - Part 2

We finally got off to Galveston this afternoon. I wanted to stock up on food well before we hit the Houston area. If we are truly going to stay in Galveston during the hurricane, we need to have non perishable food on hand - enough to last 3 to 5 days.

Things I bought:
Large package of bottled water.
2 gallon container of bottled water
Cokes, diet Coke and Dr. Pepper
Devilled ham, and a roast beef spread
Tuna ready to eat cans
An assortment of cheese and cracker sandwiches
Cheese whiz
Individual servings of fruit (they come in clear plastic containers)
Milk - the kind that comes in boxes that you don't have to refrigerate
Breakfast Cereal
Granola bars
Ground coffee and creamer (for while we still have electricity)
Matches (for the candles we brought)
Henry added a windup flashlight

If we leave tomorrow, I'll find a place to donate most of this . . .
