Labour Day September 5th 2011.

Labour Day is on Monday September 5th 2011. It is the time when workers in the United States celebrate a long week-end as an end to summer.

Families go for picnics, have barbecues, visit the outdoors, go to the theme parks and beaches, or go shopping. Some sporting events are also held to celebrate the start of the football season.

Government offices and some businesses close and the public transport system may have altered time tables.

Tropical Storm Season in Florida.

There is a warning out for a tropical storm that maybe heading towards Florida towards the end of the week, as it is the season for storms I thought it might be an idea to write about how to be prepared if you are on vacation and a storm hits.

Keep checking media coverage and tropical storm tracker sites on the internet.

Follow the guidelines set by your hotel or accommodation.

Keep your mobile phone charged.

Make sure your car gas tank is full.

Have extra food supplies if self catering, bearing in mind there may be power cuts.

Stock up on water.

Make sure you have access to cash in case ATM’s are out of order.

In the event you have to evacuate have a handy bag with toiletries, medications needed, and drinking water.

Be prepared for closures at the theme parks if a severe storm warning has been issued.

If severe stay indoors and wait.

Listen and adhere to what the authorities say.

Use common sense.
