It's coming to get the Florida 'Phorians. Everything is closed tomorrow. There's no school, so I have no work! I just got home from Wal-Mart. There was nothing on the shelves in the grocery aisles.. although we did buy 12 gallons of water.

Yeah, it really sucks Tampa's going to be washed away.

Oh wait, that city sucks. Nevermind.

Edit: I say this because no 'Phorians live there thus they won't die. But those 15 feet surges are going to devestate downtown.

KIDS, THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T BUILD A BIG A BIG CITY BELOW SEA LEVEL.

You guys haven't talked to him?! They are even telling people here in Polk County that live in trailers to get the fuck out.

Do insurance companies even offer hurricane insurance? Wouldn't they go out of business?

What I love is the stupid people who run out by plywood cover their windows, take the ply wood down, freak out next storm, buy more plywood, yell on the local news how there is not enough plywood, buy some ply wood cover their windows throw it out.....................................

Dude buy enough fucking plywood to cover all your windows and reuse it. Keep it in your garage you know your going to need it again.

It doesn't matter. It's not like the water will go wasted. We drink bottled water always because our tap water is full of chlorine.

We've had really bad weather the past few days. My area, for the first time in lliving memory flooded. Stupid rain. It's sunny one minute and lashing it down painfully the next.
