David Wouch, ’16 Plano, Texas:
Well I tried to stock up on bottled water. I figured I might need them if something happened with the plumbing system. Apparently I wasn’t the only one with this idea because Walmart was almost completely out of water.
Christian Getz, ’16 Tyrone, Pa:
I brought a heavy raincoat from my house, a poncho, and a flashlight just in case we lost power; always be prepared.
Robert Link ’16, Rochester, N.Y.:
I made sure that I grabbed my Gameboy Advance and about 20 of my games. I also bought a whole pack of batteries so I can stay entertained for days.
Ethan Miller ’15, Baltimore, Md:
My mom got worried and sent me a bunch of canned goods in the mail. Now I have about 16 cans of Chef Boyardee ravioli just begging to be eaten.
Ronnie Greene ’15, State College, Pa.:
I prepared for Sandy by moving all my belongings off of the floor and onto my bed and desk in case the room flooded.
