First-Person Report: Former SLO resident in Pennsylvania escaped brunt of superstorm Sandy

Tribune Web producer Larissa Doust and her family filled up gas tanks, got cash, stocked up on bottled water and nonperishable food and secured patio furniture in preparation for the storm that wreaked havoc on the East Coast. Weâ™ve got gallons of bottled water. We stocked up on nonperishable food. The freezer was filled with large bags of water that would help keep food cold if the power went out. And we had a large battery-powered lantern and several flashlights, with lots of extra batteries. If an evacuation order came, weâ™d follow it and not try to ride out the storm in our home.
