Friday Funnies!

Happy Friday Everyone!
You ready to end this week on a happy note? If you're here then your answer is probably yes!
If you would like to join in the fun, just link up your family friendly funny below.

Well since there is a Category 3 hurricane right of the coast of my dear state of Florida and 2 more wonderful "could be" hurricanes following close behind, I thought I would make sure that all my fellow Floridians are properly prepared. Because I'm good like that!

Preparing for a Hurricane

If you're new to the area, you're probably wondering what you need to do to prepare for a hurricane.
It is standard procedure in Florida to wait until the last possible moment before picking up supplies. Be sure to wait at least long enough so you'll see a free fight or two between people trying to buy a years supply of the wrong size batteries for their flashlights because the correct sized batteries were just purchased by that other customer. It's so much fun to watch impromptu sprawls that are more realistic than those wrestling people. And you don't have to pay good money to see them.

Evacuation Routes

If you live in a low lying area, you'll want to have an evacuation route planned out. Evacuation Routes are the parking lots created on the local roads designed by the city council to be used by most of the people in a community while they use the back roads to get out of the city to higher ground.

How Do You Know If You're In a Low Lying Area?

Look carefully at your postal address. If it's in the state of Florida, you are in a low lying area.

Homeowner's Insurance

Homeowner's insurance is often considered the most important preparedness item you can't afford. Not what you can't afford to live without, but what you can't afford, PERIOD. We do have a couple of tricks that will help you get good affordable homeowner's insurance.
1.) Find a house that's built using the latest building techniques designed to help it withstand hurricanes.
2.) Make sure it's located somewhere in West Virginia.
Unfortunately, if your home is located in Florida, or any area along the coast that could be hit by a hurricane, your chances of getting affordable insurance is almost nil. After all, insurance companies are in business to get you to give them money, not to give you money in case your house happens to be damaged. If you do find insurance, the annual cost is likely to be roughly equal to the construction costs for a new home.

I feel so much better knowing that I have some how helped you fellow east coasters prepare for a possible hurricane!
Your Welcome!

Happy Friday Everyone!!!
