    You are thinking of repainting your house to match the plywood covering your windows.
    When describing your house to a prospective buyer, you say it has three bedrooms, two baths, and one safe hallway. (And it’s higher than the 100-year flood plain!)

    You own more than three large coolers.
    You can wish that other people get hit by a hurricane and not feel the least bit guilty about it.
    You rationalize helping a friend board up by thinking “It’ll only take a gallon of gas to get there and back”
    You have 2-liter coke bottles and milk jugs filled with water in your freezer
    Three months ago you couldn’t hang a shower curtain; today you can assemble a portable generator by candlelight.

    Someone comes to your door to tell you they found your roof.
    Ice is a valid topic of conversation.

    Relocating to South Dakota does not seem like such a crazy idea.
    You spend more time on your roof then in your living room.
    You’ve been laughed at over the phone by a roofer, fence builder, or a tree worker.
    A battery powered TV is considered a home entertainment center.
    You don’t worry about relatives wanting to visit during the summer.

    The guy was probably just angry at his situation, and a bit callous. Just a sarcastic release of anger.

    Here in Florida we've been through 8 hurricanes and 3 tropical storms in the state since 2004, and I think its hysterical because most of it is true. I currently have 12 cans of Chef Boy-Ar-Dee beefaroni left and 5 coolers. Don't use soda bottles in the freezer though- juice bottles seem to fit better. I've also learned to change the batteries in the radio in the dark. And even though its probably a very nice place don't think i'd ever move to S. Dakota.
