Top 10 reasons Hurricane Season is like Christmas

My Aunt, from NOLA, sent me this and I thought I would share. Sorry it isn't a "real" post about my daily life - after all that is the title of my blog, but my "daily brain" is sort of dead right now. I promise you a post this weekend.

Top Ten Reasons Hurricane Season Is Like Christmas

Number Ten:
Decorating the house (with plywood).

Number Nine:
Dragging out boxes that haven't been used since last season.

Number Eight:
Last minute shopping in crowded stores.

Number Seven:
Regular TV shows pre-empted for 'Specials'.

Number Six:
Family coming to stay with you.

Number Five:
Family and friends from out of state calling you.

Number Four:
Buying food you don't normally buy . . . and in large quantities.

Number Three:
Days off from work.

Number Two:
Candles.

And the Number One reason Hurricane Season is like Christmas:
At some point you're probably going to have a tree in your house!


I know that some people might have a problem with this, but as someone who has lived though a ton of Hurricanes (also remember this is from somebody who had water in their house during Katrina) you have to find a way to laugh. Laughter brings hope, and until there is hope you can't start to recover.

What strikes me about these Top 10 Reasons is how true they all are! Thankfully, I have never been anywhere near a hurricane, although MN can have some pretty dicey tornado weather. Ugh, to all of it!

Looking forward to your brain regenerating...BWAHAHA!
