Be Prepared

I am tired of hearing all the idiots in Florida complaining about the effects of the last hurricane. Some of these people don't have enough sense to come in out of the rain.

They are complaining because they have no food or water, and the "government" is too slow to provide them. These people are too stupid to survive. When a hurricane is coming (and they had lots of warning) and you plan to ride it out, then you prepare: you stock up with food (that doesn't require cooking) and water. You fill up your bathtub to you can flush your toilet.

What is really pathetic are the ones complaining because their car is out of gas. Oh, Dear Me! When a hurricane hits, you are going to lose electricity. Anybody with any sense would fill up their gas tank BEFORE the storm hits.

Some of these morons said "Oh, it's only a Cat 2. We won't have any problem."

I have been through a hurricane and two typhoons on land, and a typhoon at sea (on a destroyer). I have a great appreciation for what 110 MPH winds can do. I have no sympathy for the fools who did not prepare. Let them suffer! Maybe they will learn something.

But, that's the view of The Resident Curmudgeon.
