all I can say is beer hurts when it comes out of your nose!
I don't think we hijacked Halloween, we just do a better job at it!

Florida and gulf folks, you ready for Gustav ?

UGH! I am not in the mood for this!

Are you prepared? I think we are pretty set here! Need to check a few things tomorrow like propane and gas, but other than that, I think we have everything we need to make it through a storm.

Are you ready?

Corn was on sale, 10 ears for $3, of course it was cheaper at The Root Of All Evil

I need batteries for my flashlight, but otherwise we're GTG. I doubt it's going to be much for anyone not on the coast though.

Hey, I lost cable for about an hour with Charlie, and that was the extent of my damage.

Of course I was in Ft. Lauderdale for Andrew, so I've seen a real hurricane

I feel similarly about the cha-cha, electric slide, and mambo #5

We moved here in May of 2004, so our first experience with hurricanes was Charlie, Frances, & Jean.

We're still newbies enough that we check and restock the hurricane kit on June 1st each year. I think we're pretty much set. I filled up the gas tank on my car before going in for surgery on Thursday, and having been on pain pills since, haven't driven, so it's still a full tank. I'll just need to remember to hit an ATM for cash and I'm good.

I need to fill up the water jugs, the water in them is a few months old. We are set on propane, gas, and canned goods. Guess a bottle of bourbon may come in handy!

Now lets sit back and watch the "unprepared" freak out on Monday and Tuesday when the gas stations run out of gas!
