I give up. This board is too hard to understand.
You might be a Floridian if:

You have more than 20 C & D batteries in your drawer.

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

Your pantry contains more than 10 cans of "Spaghetti-O's".

Making Coffee on your propane grill, is nothing strange to do.

You're thinking of painting your house to match the plywood, covering your windows.

When describing your house to a prospective buyer, you tell them, it has 3 BR's, 2 Baths & a safe place.

You're on a first name basis, with the cashier at Home Depot.

You're delighted to pay $2.00 a gal for unleaded.

The road leading to your house, has been declared a "no wake zone."

You decide that your Patio furniture does look better, at the bottom of the pool.

You have the number of FEMA, on your speed dialer.

You own more than 3 large coolers.

You can wish other people get hit by a Hurricane and not feel guilty about it!

3 months ago, you couldn't hang a shower curtain, today, you can assemble a portable generator by candle light.

You catch a 5 lb catfish in your driveway.

At Cocktail parties, the women are attracted to the man with the largest "chainsaw."

You have had Tuna Fish for more than 5 days in a row.

Someone comes to your door, to tell you they found your roof.

Ice is a valid topic of conversation.

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

You can recite from memory, whole portions of your insurance policy.

My director of development lives in Pensacola.
He has been firing jokes the whole time.
He was lucky though.
He just built a house and had the roof vent ripped off with some minor water damage.
His old neighborhood had a canal to the gulf and that neighborhood is entirely destroyed. Two of his next door neighbors cars are now in that canal.

As for the batteries remember my comment on our batteries and the porno movie.:biggrin:

Katrina did more than Rita did to Miami. Katrina left some without power and blew some branches and trees down, but Rita was nothing more than a breif rain storm. All in all we've been pretty lucky. I braved the overly packed grocery store on Monday, just to have a large supply of water and tuna now.

It's hard to turn something so tragic into humor, but I thought the Daily Show did a great job. One particular segment I remember is Jon Stewart asking Ed Helms why he was reporting from Giants Stadium instead of the Superdome like he was supposed to, and he said, "Well, Jon, I'm scared." :biggrin:

The photo of Bush Jr. and Sr. fishing in the flood waters was pretty funny, too!
