OK, so maybe that should be "walkin' on storm surge" - yes, the latest and greatest from Katrina and the Waves. Here we go again - as of the National Hurricane Center's update #4, it looks like Katrina will be making landfall in the Escambia/Santa Rosa/Okaloosa region sometime Monday afternoon. A couple of suggestions for people in the storm's path:
- Everyone, make sure you do not, repeat, do not, go get gas now - wait until Sunday afternoon so you can sit in the long lines and piss and moan like everyone else about how bad the lines are. Or better yet, don't get gas before the storm at all - wait and have even more fun afterwards when there isn't any gas to be had within a billion miles of Fort Walton Beach.
- If you're a beachfront property owner in Okaloosa (esp. Destin) or Walton County, throw yourself on the sand in front of the bulldozers trying to shore up the dunes - you know beach renourishment is just a Big Government attempt to take your land, and no hurricane is going to convince you that Mother Nature is just taking back what's hers.
Enough snide commentary for right now - I need to go and see if I can come up with more pop culture references to tie in with hurricanes (and I need to finish my rain-theme CD - Madonna's "Rain," CCR's "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" and "Who'll Stop the Rain," and more!).
I hate to say it... but I keep thinking, "Go to LA!!! Go to LA!!! We've had our share! And stay away from Alabama too!" :)
