Thursday Thirteen: edition 21 - 13 things hurricanes do to make life miserable

Thirteen Things hurricanes do to make life miserable
1.... Tears down your house and/or employer! (so maybe no job!) 2.... Threatens your life 3.... Floods your neighborhood 4.... Brings tornadoes 5.... Rips up all the trees in your yard and maybe on your entire street 6.... Moves your roof to the street in front of your house 7.... Leaves you in the dark - for weeks or months 8.... Makes you wait in lots of LONG lines - for gas, food, and ice 9.... Makes you hot and sticky and stinky 10... Brings you closer to your neighbors (maybe the only plus - because you're all outside without TV or computers and because it's too hot to stay inside) 11... Closes the local parks for months or a year or more (the parks are last priority to clean up) 12... Brings out lots of mosquitoes (because of all the standing water). Sometimes snakes, too. 13... Perhaps floods your house * puts you out of touch with the rest of the world for awhile

I hope the hurricane hasn't done any of these things to you.

Please tell us that all of these don't apply to your life. How horrible. I've been watching the weather in Florida for quite a while - in awe of the power of nature.

Thanks for visiting me and your kind words. Did you come via the black box?

Pieces of my roof were all over the yards and I'm sure some of it in the street.

The black box widget is in my side bar to grab for whoever wants it.

Hi Ashley,

Thanks so much for your comment. I think every American can see, feel, taste and hear all the sensations that they felt at the moment the towers came down.
