Here I Am . . . 

All together now, “ROCK YOU LIKE A HURRICANE!”


I am not ashamed to admit that I did my best ’80s headbanging, obnoxiously loud signing at my desk as I wrote that. I think every Friday should come with a does of mid-80s hairbands.

And back to the serious. 🙁

This week is National Hurricane Preparedness Week.; I know it’s crazy to think hurricane season is back upon.

If you are a coastal family what have you done to ready yourself for hurricane season? Have you been informed? Have you made a kit? Have you created a plan?

Now is the time to be prepared.

If you are looking for interesting ways to become informed and engage your child at the same time, check out these webinars from The Hurricane: Science and Society Team at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography. The webinars are geared towards the 5th grade age bracket, but all family members will be able to find useful information. And better yet, the webinars are region specific, so you can find the one that best accommodates where you live.
