The First Threat of the 2011 Hurricane Season
What does this mean to a Rumstyler? It is time to mix up a batch of Hurricane Bob and get together with all my Key West nautical friends and drink in defiance to Irene on the dock to drive her away from out island. This has been our tradition for the past 5 years and it has worked very well to drive the evil hurricane forces away. Wednesday about 7:00pm it is on, us against the hurricane on the docks.
If you are in the path of the storm, your preparation is the most important thing you can do, make sure you have all of the essentials for survival without water, electricity, or phone service. There is a guide for preparation at http://www.ready.gov/ and following these suggestions might be the difference between survival and not.
When you are ready for the storm it is time to party, so make the best of it, keep an eye on the sky's and above all be safe. ;o)
