Keep high and dry, Floridians. We’re rooting for you.
(I know it is not the same thing, but when I was a kid on a Pacific island one year, we had drills for when the tidal waves would hit. You cannot outrun a Tsunami, we were told, but you can out-climb one. We learned how to shimmy up palm trees using our shirts as a wrap-around, like the people who climb up telephone poles. It works! I don’t think you can out-run a hurricane, but after it hits get up high before the water surges. Find the most intact building and get going.)
There isn’t a lot more to be said, the coverage is wall-to-wall. I keep wondering if all these back-to-back hurricanes might be the wake-up call that the country needs to take climate change seriously. All these Republican states with Republican governors are getting an object-lesson right between the eyes.
Even when his state is set to be blown off the map, Gov. Rick Scott continues to not allow his administration to use the double C words.
“[Preznint Stupid] said he would be praying for us.” Gov. Rick Scott
Gov. Scott has an amoral compass. We suggest to Gov. Scott that he should seek higher ground, too.
