Look I am well aware of the danger posed to Floridians by a tropical storm. Flooding, tornados, heavy winds all potentially dangerous I suppose. But the reality of being a Floridian is that Tropical storms are a pleasant distraction from the overbearing oppressive heat. Tropical storms are actually fun really. We enjoy them. We meme them.
Here’s how NOAA frames this storm;
…GORDON LASHING SOUTH FLORIDA WITH TROPICAL-STORM-FORCE WINDS AND HEAVY RAINS…
…STORM SURGE WARNING AND HURRICANE WATCH ISSUED FOR PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL GULF COAST…
Here’s how Floridians frame this storm;
Look by all means you should take all precautions you feel necessary and it’s always the storm you’re not prepared for that gets you, but let’s be realistic, Tropical storms for Floridians are more inconveniences in how they go about their day. Like can you go to Publix between rain bands kind of an inconvenience. I’m not speaking for other states, they should prepare and batten down those hatches but here in Florida, we’re just relaxing on a rainy day.
Hurricanes are a different story altogether. Don’t eff with a hurricane, unless it’s a cat 1.
Send us any memes you’ve made of this storm or any others and maybe we’ll publish them!
