Why hurricane season is like Christmas

10. Decorating the house (boarding up windows)
9. Dragging out boxes that haven't been used since last season (camping gear, flashlights)
8. Last minute shopping in crowded stores
7. Regular TV shows pre-empted for "specials"
6. Family coming to stay with you
5. Family and friends from out-of-state calling
4. Buying food you don't normally buy ... and in large quantities
3. Days off from work
2. Candles
And the number one reason Hurricane Season is like Christmas ...

.. At some point you know you're going to have a tree in your house!

Just got back on after Ivan. Went thru all of your steps 1 thru 10. Much truth to all of them!
May as well laugh cause not much else to do in the dark.

Still over 400,000 without power. There were 825,000 after the storm. Progress is being made. Strange that your neighbor across the street and next door have no power but you do.

Only one thing to do, run a power cord to them.

Lol! Don't forget...

11. Cooking massive amounts of food (to keep it from spoiling)

and

12. Speaking to neighbors you may have never met before.

I told Jill one day in Walmart one day that I would bet money that there were people in there that never left the house other than before or after a hurricane. I've lived here four years. I have seen people in the last two months that I know for a fact I have NEVER seen before. Strange kinda people. Pre and post hurricane people. (grin)
