Ok so here’s the deal on this hurricane: It looks pretty bad. I’m still going to the gun show tomorrow, but there are no large bodies of water nearby so I should be ok. But in any event I worked through Himicane Floyd (male storm) and it wasn’t pretty. It turned out to be one of the longest shifts of my career. The department was utterly unprepared for the problems we encountered that day and truth be told we aren’t much better prepared years later.
But my real issue is with the retards who refuse to evacuate when told to do so. I hope they all get washed away. Look I don’t know if this storm is going to be as bad as the clueless media says it will be. All they do is hype a story like this for ratings sake. Journalists after all go to school for journalism, to learn how to do what bloggers figured out on their own. They usually have little expertise in any field they may actually be reporting on. So they embellish, hype and over dramatize. But what I do know is that pictures don’t lie. This is a BIG storm and it’s angry my friends. It’s half on land and half over the ocean. That could spell real trouble for the coast. Those who refuse to evacuate are ignorant and selfish. They are putting the lives of first responders and others in grave danger unnecessarily.
They will be the first people calling 911 when it gets too much for them and their home is flooding up to the roof like Katrina. And some poor firefighter or Coast Guardsman will have to risk their lives because of their stupidity. Thankfully some jurisdictions refuse to answer 911 calls until the storm has passed. That’s good. If you refuse to take responsibility for your personal safety then we shouldn’t risk other people’s lives for the sake of your arrogance.
It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature. You bet.
To all my East Coast homies- batten down the hatches and get to somewhere safe.
