Best Ways to Entertain Yourself During a Hurricane

Author: David Stone
Hurricane preparation can be a very confusing and stressful, and you usually do not think about what you will actually do when the storm has hit. This can leave you with a lot of empty time. Many hurricanes cause power loss that can last for days. That means there won’t be any televisions or computers that you can use to entertain yourself. It is also especially hard to entertain larger groups of people when the power is out if you are not prepared. There are some easy things you can do to ensure that you do not find yourself completely bored during a storm.

Small Radios are one of the best things to have in a storm because they are can supply music and important updates during a storm. They also do not require much power, so a set of batteries can go a long way. A deck of cards is also a great item to have because you can play games like solitaire or get a group poker game started. They are also a very small item that is great if you are evacuated because they are light and small. If you know you are going to be solo, you can never go wrong with a big book and a lantern. Any reading material is great, but a larger novel is best because you never know how much time you might be stuck without power. If games are more of your forte, then you can make sure to pick up a couple of jigsaw puzzles and a few board games in case you do have some company. There are also many books full of other puzzles like crosswords and word jumbles.

They real key to entertain yourself in a storm is to think of what you would do if you were camping. It is best to have a plan for just yourself and a group of people. That way you are set for any situation that may arise.
