Also candles b/c you don't have to carry those like flashlights. Just fill some containers with water, ice for the cooler for the stuff that'll melt, and have a hurricane party! Buds, BBQ, and Beer. It's a Cat 2. There'll be wind, some trees will go down and there'll be lots of rain, maybe a little hail. Just remember that the eye will be nice and calm and then it'll get gross again so don't go far out of the house just because the weather seems to have cleared for a bit! I remember when one came through YEARS ago, I was little. Loved it because of all the rain and thunder and lightening. Was sad when it knocked over my favorite tree though.
