Emergency Preparedness

I went on a grocery run this weekend to stock up for what we are referring to as "Hurricane Diallo": Wednesday is the anniversary of the 2009 Conakry stadium massacre. The opposition parties have announced peaceful rallies for tomorrow and Wednesday; the governor of Conakry has announced that no rallies will be permitted, no way, no how. No one really knows what's going to happen - maybe nothing - but I'm hoping for the best and stocking up on essentials, just in case.

While out shopping I happened upon a rare treasure: 100 percent actually real Philadelphia cream cheese. Squee! I bought a bunch of it, so in the event that we do have to stay home for a few days due to "inclement weather" at least I'll have cheesecake.

  1. This is by far the best emergency preparation planning I have seen. Cheesecake can take the edge off of just about any looming unrest - so glad you scored on the cream cheese! Seriously though, isn't it funny how such a little thing can make such a morale difference? -- and stay safe these days!
