you might be a floridian if .......

With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy.

You might be a Floridian if:

You keep more than 20 C and D batteries in a sealed plastic bag.

Your freezer is full of homemade ice.

You flinch when you are introduced to a person named Charley, Frances Ivan or Jeanne.

You find yourself dropping terms like "eye wall" "feeder band" "millibar" and "convection" into everyday conversation, and you can discuss with authority the relative merits of the various computer hurricane tracking models.

Your pantry contains more than 10 cans of SpaghettiOs.

Making coffee on a propane grill does not seem like an odd thing to
do.

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 a large safe room.

You are on a first-name basis with any cashier at Home Depot.

You've ever traded high fives with an electric company repair crew.

You are delighted to pay $2 for a gallon of unleaded after waiting in line for an hour.

Your family heirlooms are all wrapped in trash bags.

The road leading to your house has been declared a No-Wake Zone.

You decide that your patio furniture really looks better on the bottom of the pool.

You have the number for FEMA on your speed dialer.

You own more than three large coolers.

You can wish that other people get hit by an approaching hurricane and not feel the least bit guilty about it.

Three months ago you couldn't hang a shower curtain; today you can
assemble, connect and fire up a portable generator by flashlight in a howling wind.

You caught a 5-pound catfish. In your driveway.

You can recite from memory whole portions of your homeowner's insurance
policy.

If you are a man, you brag about the size of your chain saw. If you're a woman, you find yourself oddly attracted to the guy with the biggest chain saw in the neighborhood.

You have eaten tuna fish more than 5 days in a row.

There is more than one roll of tar paper in your garage.

You can rattle off the names of three or more meteorologists who work at the Weather Channel.

Your dog only pees facing into the wind.

You've had strangers come to your door to tell you they found part of your roof.

Ice is a valid topic of conversation.

Relocating to North Dakota does not seem like such a crazy idea.




Figured i'd post for some humor... them guys and gals down there need it..
