So the weatherman just pointed to a spinning red thing headed toward the coast and made two point. 1, no need to panic.2 we could all be killed. Follow three simple steps.1, buy enough food for three days.2 put these supplies in your car.3 drive to Nebraska and stay there until Halloween. You also need to have homeowners insurance. No problem as long as you home meets two requirements.1 its reasonably well built.2 its in Nebraska. Unfortunately if your home is in Louisiana most insurance Co. would prefer to not sell you insurance because they might have to pay you money and that is certainly not why they are in the insurance business. If you live in a low lying area, you should have an evacuation plan. To see if you live in a low lying area check your drivers license. If it says Louisiana, you live in a low lying area. The purpose of evacuation is to avoid being trapped in your home, instead you will be trapped with two hundred thousand other evacuees in a gigantic traffic jam several miles from your home. Bonus, you wont be lonely. If you dont evacuate you will need supplies. At least $160 worth of batteries that turn out to be the wrong size when the power goes out. A 50 gallon drum of deodorant and $35000 in cash so after the hurricane you can buy a generator from a man with no teeth . Most important, stay informed. Watch the TV reporters in rain slickers standing next to the Gulf telling you over and over just how important it is for everybody to stay away from the Gulf.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
