Rock You Like A Hurricane
Close your eyes and hide your hands if you are offended easily. I think there is too much coverage of hurricane Dennis. Sure, it seems people are interested in the devastation, the lives ruined, the homes lost and the survivors. But, if you think hard on it, there have been 4 storms in Florida this year and 5 storms last year. It happens so often that one of Florida's college football teams calls themselves the Hurricanes. I don't know how insurance companies can stay in business there. Maybe it just seems overly logical to me but...move. Why live somewhere where your family and belongings are unsafe.
Obviously, I have thought about this many times. I think about it because I'm in a place that I feel is pretty darn safe compared to the earthquakes in California, tornadoes in the Midwest and hurricanes in the Southeast. We get sunburns and might have to spend more time indoors during the summer. But, I wonder... how much do you value the safety of your family in where you live?
