We lived in Charleston, SC when Hugo hit; for the first few days after, it was high parteeee time, when all the neighbors fired up the grills and got rid of all the shrimp in their freezers. Then reality hit. By the end of the second week, I was warming up Campbell's soup on the charcoal grill. Oh, and my then-fiancee, now hubbie both had to be at work immediately post-hurricane(he on the radio at the only station that survived the storm, and me at a hospital), both of us had to be at work at 6 a.m. We got up at about 3:30, and lit a fire in the fireplace to heat enough water for coffee and to wash our faces, then off to work. My pop in law sent us his coleman two-burner the day after the electricity came back on!
