  17. The Bahama's are getting erased with this storm. I mean think about a 23 ft water surge. A 2 story building would be under water. Folks loading up on gas? OK fill your tank, but where ya gonna go if you stay? Things folk should stock up on is ice and kitty litter. You can make a candle with water, veggie oil and a string, plus it's safer. Fill your tub with water and plug it good. Fill jugs with water and get a percolator for coffee. It doesn't look like Florida going to get smacked, but you never know. And flying coconuts are like canon balls.

  18. Well I guess that will happen in Florida
