thehmarie1089: your-reference-here: This is from the forecast discussion of Major Hurricane Florence from this afternoon. As a meteorologist, when I saw this, my heart sank. They don’t use wording like this for every storm. Florence is going to be a devastating. There will be huge amounts of flooding, both from inland rain and from costal storm surge. Winds are going to be some of the strongest you can get from a hurricane. People within the path of this storm could lose everything. If you know anyone who lives on the North or South Carolina coast, tell them that if there’s an evacuation ordered, they need to get the hell out. Do not take chances with this one. Reblogging again to add a list of things/essentials from a friend who lives on the NC coast and has weathered hurricanes and other bad weather: - toiletries (paper towels, toilet paper, baby wipes for “bathing” in case power water go out) - water, 1 gallon per person for at least 7 days (err on the side of caution if possible); more if you have animals!! - non perishable food items, if you get canned food make sure you have a can OPENER - pet food supplies, if you’re really worried about flooding it may be beneficial to get life vests for your pets, also find a way to put identification information on them! - batteries - flashlights - battery packs for cell phones charged up in case of loss of power - filled cars with gas filled gas can(s) - get all essentials like passports, important docs, and cherished items together ready to go - just in case, determine a way to get onto your roof safely - fill bathtubs with water so if water isn’t available you can refill the toilets to keep flushing and keep waste to a minimum - if you have dogs look up how to make a makeshift potty, you can use a hard baby pool and some sod potentially - check your prescriptions and get them refilled now if necessary - if you’re taking insulin and lose power, fill a separate cooler for your insulin than the one you would use for food. Insulin food If your place begins to flood get the hell OUT of the water!!! There is no telling if you have a live electrical charge in there! Do not cross any water you cannot see the bottom of the ground in. I’m serious.

Florence has rapidly intensifled into an extremely dangerous hurricane, with 30-second GOES-16 visible imagery showing well-defined eyewall mesovortices rotating inside of the eye. A NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft found peak SFMR winds of about 120 kt, with flight-level winds and dropsonde measurements also supporting that value for the initial wind speed estimate. Notably, the aircraft data also show the size of the hurricane-force winds has doubled in the past 12 hours thehmarie1089: your-reference-here: This is from the forecast discussion of Major Hurricane Florence from this afternoon.

sophygurl: optais-amme: 10 Things Food Banks Need But Won’t Ask For Some items are in high demand at the food bank and you may not realize it. Because they aren’t essentials, the staff doesn’t publicly ask for them. A survey asked volunteers what items people would be most appreciative of and we’ve listed the top 10 below. If you’re looking for an easy way to help out, pick some of these up while shopping and drop them off at one of our area food banks. 1. Spices. Think about it. People who rely on the food bank eat a lot of canned food, rice, oatmeal, white bread, etc. They love spices. Seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, oregano, basil and so on. 2. Feminine Products. Can you imagine being worried about affording these? Pads, tampons, panty liners, etc. Recommended: Buy in bulk at Costco for donating. 3. Chocolate. People don’t need it, but think about being in their shoes and how nice it would be to be given a chocolate bar or brownie mix along with your essentials. 4. Toiletries. Grocery stores are great about donating surplus or unsold food, but they have no reason to donate toilet paper, tooth paste, soap, deodorant, shampoo, etc. Food stamps often don’t cover these. 5. Canned meats and jerky. This isn’t true of all food banks, but some struggle to give users enough protein. 6. Crackers and tortillas. They don’t spoil and everybody likes them. 7. Baby toiletries. Diapers, baby wipes, baby formula, baby shampoo, baby soap, baby food, bottles, etc. 8. Soup packets. Sometimes you look at rice, beans, instant potatoes, and cans of vegetable and think, “What do I make with this?” Hearty soup is a complete meal. 9. Socks. From a former homeless person: “Socks mean the world to you. They keep you warm, make you feel like you have something new, and just comfort you.” 10. Canned fruit other than pineapple. Food banks get a lot of pineapple donated. Their clients love it when other kinds of fruit are available. [SOURCE] And remember! Food banks love cash donations because it allows them to buy whatever they need! As a sometimes food pantry user myself and with friends who rely on them to varying degrees - I want to specifically stress some of these:  - non-food items like tp and feminine products and baby needs are SO incredibly important because 1) they are rarely donated, 2) people who have food stamps can often afford their food staples but might still need help with toiletries and cleaning items, and 3) folks who are homeless especially need that kinda stuff!  - treats! Like, yes of course, if I am in need I am appreciative of canned goods and rice and pasta and stuff. That’s great for putting together healthy meals. But everyone needs a treat once in awhile - so when there is candy or chips or a nice expensive brand of organic something or other available at the pantry - it is just so incredibly exciting. It can be a humiliating experience to visit a pantry, and it can make you feel very much less than. So to get a treat of some sort just really really makes a difference. And believe me - there are enough loaves of bread, cans of fruit, and dried beans to go around at these places. You won’t be starving someone by donating some microwave popcorn or chocolate chips now and again.

the-real-eye-to-see: This mom is using her coupon clipping skills to help hurricane victims in need. Laundry detergent, soap, diapers, baby wipes, formula - you name it,the Texas woman has bought it. Kimberly Gager volunteered to shop on behalf of anyone willing to donate toward hurricane evacuees. She expected a few friends to pinch in, but to her surprise, she got dozens of responses. Since then, she has been clipping coupons, making trips to the store and delivering items. She’s spent about $2,700 - but gotten goods worth about $5,000 in retail price. Gager estimates she’s made at least 50 trips to her local Walgreens and Target to stock up on items families have requested.  So far, she’s delivered items to nearly 30 families. And she’s looking for even more people to help. : Moorlnfo @Moorlnformation Follow Texas mom uses extreme coupon skills to help Hurricane Harvey victims Her garage is filled with so many , items for Harvey victims she can't park there any more 9:28 PM 13 Sep 2017 the-real-eye-to-see: This mom is using her coupon clipping skills to help hurricane victims in need.

Ladies I am sorry. On behalf of penis owners everywhere, I am sorry. Y'all put up with a lot. These men, bruh. They ain livin right. Grown ass men. In they 20s. Or 30s. Got a job. Got a lil paycheck. They crib lookin like a damn pigpen. Except unlike pigs which are cute and which God created to roll around in they own shit by nature, these is grown men named Chad and Cory who should know better. The problem bruh is that Chad and Cory had mamas that coddled them. Spoiled them. Did they laundry. You feel me? Cleaned the floor. So when these men get turned loose in the wild they got no preparation. Nobody taught them. They really out here figuring shit out on they own. With that said men here's a quick guide to not having a place that look like a disgusting shithole. (1) Swiffer. Some of u men, your floor sticky in one spot. Ashy in one spot from the roommate who get stoned every day. Filthy in other spots. Swiff that shit. It's literally a mop with a baby wipe on it. It's idiot proof. Just wipe and then chuck the wipe. Bam. Now girls ain't got to tippy toe around your joint bruh have some respect 😂. (2) Compostable-recyclable plates-forks-cups. Men - why u buying plates if u gon eat on it and let it sit and get that deep fossilized crust that can never come off looking like a dinosaur bone buried under there? Be real with yourself. Recyclable-compostable everything. Save yourself the headache of doing dishes. Yo mama ain't around. U all alone on this one 😂. (3) Lysol toilet bowl cleaner. U can't fuck this up. THE NECK IS ALREADY BENT UPWARD LOL. Just stick your hand in there, squirt and twist. Couple good scrubs, now your joint is gleaming. That's 90 seconds of work for a clean toilet. U feel me? Cleanliness is part of hospitality. This a house not a farm. To keep it 💯 if the pipe game nice girls don't care about cleanliness but I like to have both in my arsenal because why be average when u can be exkra and have them wanting to get pregnant with Smash Jr. 🤗. Ya get me! Bless up 😍😂😂😂: He's so smol Ladies I am sorry. On behalf of penis owners everywhere, I am sorry. Y'all put up with a lot. These men, bruh. They ain livin right. Grown ass men. In they 20s.

I remember going to a seminar a couple of years ago when they were talking about RFID technology and one of the speakers mentioned something like this.... Boy oh boy this is going to be interesting lol I wonder what the security detail is going to be like in these stores everyone without an amazon account are just to going to be thinking "FREE FOOD" ...... the more advanced technology gets the more redundant human labour becomes the future will be like black mirror I'm telling you lol soon retail stores will have no use for humans at all .... I think this is a great idea though I mean considering that I really hate queues ... shit when they bring this to London I hope it's a 24hr store .... so if i get a "you up" text at 1:45am and she says you can come over and dip your biscuit into my cup of tea but you have to wear a condom... I'll be like I don't think you need to put protection on Digestive biscuits I think they're already STD free ... then when I finally understand what she really meant I just bust one quick cartwheel into this store pick up a packet of Durex's finest, some baby wipes, a mouthguard, a can of ginger beer, some morning after pills, a portrait of Luther vandross and some tampons as a "leave as soon as it hits daylight" thank you present to leave on top of her dresser: Amazon just changed the entire game.
