If you are in a safe and flood-free place, stay put. Forget about braving the storm to go to another place. If you stay where you are, you're doing everyone a favor by not adding one more person to be rescued.
Now what to do with all the time you have in your hands?
1. Clean out your closet. We all know what's coming. There's going to be a call for clothes, shoes, towels, blankets etc for donation. You can do it now.
2. Stay calm. Meditate. If you have a particular style of meditation that you do, by all means do it. If not, follow the simple instructions that Sharon Gannon gives. Inhale let, exhale go. Sit for 30 minutes.
3. Have a cup of hot chocolate or hot tea to warm the body. Add a little coco sugar or agave syrup to sweeten it.
4. Got a backlog of books? The books are not going to read themselves. Go read. Do it.
5. Watch social change documentaries. I give you more than 500 options. Pick one or two or three.
6. Write. Write a poem. Write down your thoughts. Write to a long-lost frend. Write a love letter. Write a joke. Write a blog entry. Write anything to keep your mind active.
7. Practice yoga right where you are. Home practice options are available via podcasts and videos, or you can just make something up along the way.
8. Get busy with do-it-yourself projects. Find old things you can repurpose.
9. Take a long nap. Remember all those times you had to wake up early even if your body is not quite ready yet? Today is not one of those days. Sleep in. Enjoy it!
10. Keep warm. Listen to the raindrops as you hide under the blankets. It is pretty nice.

Stay safe everyone!
