It is our hope that Hurricane Sandy turns out to sea and none of these preparations are necessary. However, it was only one year ago that we dealt with the wrath of Tropical Storm Irene, and even though that storm wasn't a hurricane, it caused flooding and loss of electricity in our community as well as damage to structures and boats. A battery powered radio is one of your best friends in a storm, buy one now before they run out. You'll also want to stock up ahead of time on food, water, and ice and be prepared to transfer your food to an ice packed cooler when the electricity goes out.
