I don’t think I like hurricanes. I’ve never actually lived here in Florida during hurricane season. So I’ve perused the massive amounts of hurricane information out there.
Here are the names for 2011.

Bret? Really? Greek alphabet?
I’m going to spend the day getting hurricane ready. Here’s my to-do list
Get fluids. Water, tequila, lime juice, gasoline (to keep my car running so I can charge my cell phone, you know)
Get haircut. You never know, Cindy might not be able to get into her shop for a week or so. You think I want to pick through rubble looking like this?
Get dog food and treats. Sure, I’m going to need food for me, but how could I possibly eat in front of Shelby the Wonder Shepherd?
Get food for me…let’s see, what can I stockpile that won’t require refrigeration and will supply enough energy for picking through rubble? Tortilla chips, cheese sauce, cheetos, chocolate, marshmallows, pickles , pop tarts and Reisling (okay, okay, it should be chilled – I’ll put it in my car with the air conditioning running while I’m charging my cell phone and checking my e-mail on the laptop).
Who am I kidding. I’m packing up and heading north!
