The 5th Season

  In Louisiana there is a 5th season. Better known to the rest of the world as hurricane season. Hurricane runs from June 1 to November 30.  Before the season starts some of the parishes in the state have a "parish tax free weekend". In some parishes this event was this weekend past. During this time a person should get hurricane season supplies such as : water, batteries, canned food, flash lights, medicine, ice & if possible, a generator. A first aid kit is also a good thing to have on hand & so is a grill with enough fuel so cooking can be possible. The "experts" say that to have enough supplies to last for 3 to 7 days, but with storms like Katrina, Rita & Gustav some people can be without power for at least a month. So it is always a good idea to be prepared for the unexpected.
