    We have snow storms, and you have Hurricanes, I'll take the snow, thank you.
    Regards, and hope this brings a little smile.

    You might be a Floridian

    You exhibit a slight twitch when introduced to anyone with the first
    names of Charley, Bonnie, Frances, Ivan or Jeanne.

    Your freezer never has more than $20 worth of food in it any given time

    You're looking at paint swatches for the plywood on your windows, to
    accent the house color

    You think of your hall closet/saferoom as "cozy"

    Your pool is more accurately described as "framed in" than "screened in"

    Your freezer in the garage now only has homemade ice in it

    You no longer worry about relatives visiting during the summer months

    You, too, haven't heard back from the insurance adjuster

    You now understand what that little "2% hurricane deductible" phrase
    really means

    You're putting a collage together on your driveway of roof shingles from
    your neighborhood

    You were once proud of your 16" electric chain saw

    Your Street has more than 3 "NO WAKE" signs posted

    You now own 5 large ice chests

    Your parrot can now say" hammered, pounded and hunker down"

    You recognize people in line at the free ice, gas and plywood locations

    You stop what you're doing and clap and wave when you see a convoy of
    power company trucks come down your street

    You're depressed when they don't stop

    You have the personal cell phone numbers of the managers for: plywood,
    roofing supplies and generators at Home Depot on your speed dialer

    You've spent more than $20 on "Tall white kitchen bags" to make your own
    sand bags

    You're considering upgrading your 16" to a 20" chainsaw

    You know what "Bar chain oil" is

    You're thinking of getting your wife the hardhat with the ear protector
    and face shield for Christmas

    You now think the $6000 whole house generator seems reasonable

    You look forward to discussions about the merits of "cubed, block and dry
    ice"

    Your therapist refers to your condition as "generator envy"

    You fight the urge to put on your winter coat and wool cap and parade
    around in front of your picture window, when you finally get power and your
    neighbor across the street, with the noisy generator, doesn't get
    electric

    And finally, you might be a Floridian if:

    You ask your sister up north to start saving the Sunday Real Estate
    classifieds!
