Unlike that cute little fish in the Pixar movie, weather forecasters have said the blizzard nicknamed "Nemo" heading toward Lindenhurst, Long Island and the tri-state area is likely to pack quite a wallop.
Kim Sullivan-Hofmann wrote simply," Gas."
She later added, "Seriously gas, medications, diapers (if needed), milk, bread, batteries/flashlights, munchies, shovels, ice melt, wash laundry before storm (because you don't know you can during/after), shower/blow dry hair (again, power issues), and I make sure I have hot cocoa with marshmallows for after snow play."
She was pretty thorough, but some had another suggestion.
In a word, "booze," wrote Sarah Christina.
Melissa Gianninoto listed, "Beer and snacks."
"Beer," suggested Christopher Ventura.
Joe Chiarelli countered with, "Beer needs ice; better stick with vodka or Patron, lol."
Then he added, "Diesel fuel for the generator, a battery charger and rechargeable batteries , LED flashlights and a Verizon cell phone!"
Erik Moller chimed in, "Check your home heating oil level; get basic groceries, batteries, good friends to drink with."
Lisa Jensen Fleischmann had this advice: "Charge your phones. Have a POTS phone (Plain Old Telephone, not reliant on power) available."
