Panic Schmanic

Somewhere between my denial and your tendency to panic is a happy medium. Honestly, do you really have to go and buy all the gas up? I know we've been hit by three hurricanes in two years, each packing more of a punch than expected. But we gotta catch a break. My money says that this is our time. This season will be mild. I mean, what are the odds? We should be fine. Don't you think?

I'm thinking we'll have some wind (but you probably shouldn't fly a kite) and get a little wet. Maybe we'll get lucky and have a couple of days off. That's what I'm talkin' about.

And if my denial is wrong and your panic is justified, I'll just come back and delete this post. Comment if you want, but you've been warned.

i agree, what's the big deal, and why all the ice? drinking water ok, even though i don't think we've lost water since hurricane andrew, can't we drink tap water? and why all those containers filled with gas, fill up your car and stay home, but the ice, everybody wants to know why we haven't bought ice, cause it'll melt in the first few hours after we lose power, IF we lose power, if the power goes out, barbeque everything in the fridge, its that simple

I will gladly sell you some of my gas for $8.00/gal if it's a monster storm! :)
