Hurricane Season! Wabbit Season!

Not terribly geeky today, but related to my life right now.  Today we have Tropical Storm Fay moving in over our area.  While we certainly won’t get it as bad as others have, we should still get lots of rain and wind.

I can’t help but be reminded of Hurricane seasons past.  Below are a few humorous bits I’ve collected  or have been sent over the past few years related to Florida and Hurricanes.  Hope you enjoy.  Send me an umbrella if you can.

Just for fun, stop by CNN and watch an animated reenactment of the 2004 Hurricane Season.  It’s pretty interesting to watch.

Finally, a few things that Hurricanes have taught us…

  • An oak tree on the ground looks four times bigger than it did standing up.
  • When house hunting, look for closets with lots of leg room.
  • AA, C and D are the only alphabet we need (think batteries).
  • Chainsaw-wielding-men are nothing to be afraid of.
  • You can’t spell “priceless” without I-C-E.
  • Gasoline is a value at any price.
  • Candlelight is better than botox – it takes years off your appearance.
  • No matter how hard the wind blows, roadside campaign signs will survive.

    You don’t need an umbrella.

    What you need is for Superman to fly down into the heart of the tornado and turn it upside down.

    Then he could use his lazer beam vision t

    Where is Richard Pryor when you need him?

    By the way: I hope things are OK with the storm raging around you…

    Thanks for the kind thoughts. We’re pretty waterlogged right now. The movie “A River Runs Through It” could have been filmed in my front yard right now.

    If only Richard Pryor were here. Oh.. if only…

    Just think how much money Costner could have saved on filming Waterworld.

    Someone should have told him about Florida.
