It's likely we'll see power outages over the weekend from #HurricaneLee. A tip to help mitigate food spoilage: take a photo now of contents of your refrigerator. Then refer to the photo if you need to retrieve anything, like medications, from the fridge when the power is out. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/aQbqH3f6R8
