Preparing for Tropical Storm Isaias

There’s always so much to do before a big storm.

Yesterday, the region was hit by tropical storm Isaias. The storm brought heavy rains and high winds, but before it hit, my outdoor grounds crew worked tirelessly to ensure everything was in order -  that all the drains, catch basins, and gutters were clear, the air conditioner pits were clean, all the doors and windows were secure, and all the animals were safely tucked away in their shelters. It's very important to be well-prepared for any big storm system - additional tips include: knowing where all the flashlights are kept and making sure they are equipped with fresh batteries, stocking the first aid kit, and checking that all vehicles are filled with gas.   

Here are some photos.
