7 days of food sure came in handy for me. I arrived at the marina about 4 days before Irene was predicted to hit. I picked up a few days of fresh stuff on my way in. Got the MC anchored and then spent the next three days helping at the marina moving other boats. Road out the storm on the MC and worked the following week at the marina repairing damage. Post storm there was no electricity as far as 80 miles inland, water system compromised, the marinas ice chest had gone walkabout, roads flooded etc. We worked dawn to dusk and I went back to the boat each evening. Everything I needed was on-board food and drink, power etc. It was like cruising without moving. Dan S/V Marian Claire
