The wicked witch of the west may no longer exist, but South Florida now has its own version namely, Irma who’s roaring her ugly head and determined to wipe us out of existence, one ding dong at a time (just kidding, or am I). People are climbing all over each other for gas, water, coal bricks, kiddie litter, dry ice, and even Bleach, but come on people “Laundry detergent, seriously” what are these people thinking? What do they intend to do with it, blow bubbles in the wind or turn the Atlantic Ocean into one giant bubble bath! It’s like they’ve never seen a Hurricane before, I’ve even witnessed an almost fist fight break out over someone cutting the checkout line in the local Walmart, I mean really, what is this state coming to, seriously people are we adults or children!
Hurricanes have been a part of Florida since people have been in it. Yes, Irma is huge and slightly scary, but we shouldn’t be treating it like Armageddon.
Any Florida native will tell you that Hurricanes are some of the most bonding time for the people of this peninsula. The blackout after the hurricane is when block parties are thrown, and when grills are started. Family and friends come together and talk even if it’s by candlelight.
This is the first Cat-five (now cat-four) Hurricane we’ve had in a while it’s still no reason to kill each other over a loaf of bread. All we really have to do is put up our shutters and prepare, not fight on the floor of a Home Depot Store.
