So I live in Florida and yes, we get our fair share of tropical weather. I was born down here and have seen some crazy weather. But it never ceases to amaze me to how people panic. Being prepared is the key and as a person who has lived in Florida all her life I have always been prepared for storm season. I have enough non perishable foods tucked in totes to last my family 2 weeks. We have a camp stove, candles and flashlights just in case the power goes out. I keep portable power supplies to keep our phones charged. I have friends who live up north that do the same thing for snow season.
We were issued a storm watch this morning for Tropical Storm, Fred and people are already panicking. We just had hurricane Elsa a few weeks ago and you would think people would still be sightly prepared. Nope people have started flocking to the stores to over prepare again. Seriously people?
Is it just me being a cynical person? Hurricane season last through November and you would think people would want to stay prepared for whatever could happen. Now I know some people might not have the funds to stay completely prepared but why panic. Why? If you live in Florida you should know the possibility of a storm coming is high. I mean am I taking it too seriously or are people taking the storm season to lightly.
If you have an opinion, let me know by leaving a comment I would love to know your opinions!
Stay safe everyone,
