Hurricane (Sandy) Safety Rules From My 7 Year Old Girl!

Jia's Jabber, Kids Speak, MY VIEWS | | October 29, 2012 at 12:30 pm

I just got back from a cruise last night, which had to skip Jamaica thanks to Hurricane Sandy, and we just lost power a few hours ago. I found a Starbucks a few miles away that had power and wifi (and chai) SCORE! Hubby asked the girls to write advice about hurricanes (more to keep them out of our way) but I was so impressed I decided to post her advice.

This below is all her, purely unedited!

Illustration by my 5 year old girl!


  1. DO NOT leave the house.
  2. Have some candles,matches and a candle lighter.
  3. Don’t carry your favorite things when you are trying to escape,it will slow you down.
  4. Make sure you have food, just incase you are trapped in your house.
  5. Make sure you have enough batteries in the house, for flashlights, not toys.
  6. Have life vests in the house for each member of your family, except your pets.
  7. Work as a team, don’t fight.
  8. Eat whatever food that is in the house, even if you don’t like that food.
  9. Keep your eyes open to see where the hurricane is.
  10. Zip your lips at most times, and unzip your lips for “emergencies only.”

And the most important thing is…

If you disobey you won’t stay safe, like”I mean it.”


I love it so much I may have her as a regular contributor. What do you think?

    Can I simply say what a relief to discover someone that really knows
    what they are talking about online. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people need to read this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since you surely possess the gift.

    gently on the ear and isolate noise perfectly.
    In favor of the game was the length and depth of the storyline, the deep
    notes system that recorded the information gleaned during play and the dark dystopian setting that had folks
    traipsing around a garish Tokyo, brooding New York
    and various secret societies and institutes trying to find out what UNATCO is really up

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
