Like her fellow residents of Charleston, Patricia Altschul, matriarch of the Bravo reality series Southern Charm, is preparing for the wrath of Hurricane Florence.
With the storm set to hit North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia in the coming days, residents in those states have been securing their property, protecting their pets, and, in some cases, evacuating their homes. Though Altschul appears to be staying put, she's getting her house in order and trying to keep the mood light before the storm hits.
In a new Instagram video, the reality TV star showcases the exterior of her beloved mansion, explaining the house is "on lockdown....shutters wired over plywood, generator inspected, pool water lowered, cars in parking garage, all supplies bought, pets accounted for.... bring it on."

Altschul has been prepping for the storm with the help of her butler, Michael. In another Instagram video, the duo explained what they picked up at Costco to weather the storm.
"We just got back. We've got Bush's Original Baked Beans; we've got 25 percent less sodium Spam, which is absolutely delicious. We have snacking nuts, we've got Vienna Sausages in case all the power goes out, and we can't use the stove," Michael said. "We have Kind healthy grain bars which are very good for snacking, and we have Goldfish to keep our moods up."

Altshcul then jokingly quips that the food items are "perfect, and all healthy." In her caption, she added that they also have "dog food, gin and guns" on hand.
