We're all gonna die!!! Answered

Picture of

If you've seen the news you might have seen that the state of Florida is in the path of a tropical storm. However if you are in the state, seeing local coverage, you'll know that we're in the path of a Class 12 DeathStorm!!! In reality, the situation is even more dire than even the local news reports, I'm down to my last beer. One plus, it only took an imminent natural disaster to get our governor to visit the state, he's been too busy campaigning for mccain. I just want you to know, that is I don't make it out this time, the gold is buried under a big W!

Well, I was OK, we got a lot of rain and wind, but my area wasn't flooded. My aunt, however, lives in Melbourne and couldn't leave her subdivision.

Good to hear your okay. We got out okay, about 15 inches of rain, no power for 20 hours and one of the gutters clogged and pulled away from the house.

I think we had close to 18 inches of rain..had to let water out of the pool three times. Our power was pretty consistent, but some people on the next street over did lose it.

It wouldn't be the water I would be afraid of if I lashed myself to a tree, its the Volvo flying at 75 mph that would scare me a bit...

That looks like it hurt, but it reminds me of the time I took my nephew powerkiting.

He's twice my weight, so when I asked him to hold my Flexifoil Stacker's handles for a moment, I thought he'd be fine...

"Sure, pass them heeeerrreeeeeeeeeelp!"

I love how they express the winds as a percent. Seriously, a 13-year-old could have created that map. Good luck! Don't die. Plz?

No insults to 13-year-olds, that part was quasi-random. The point is that given the center location, the rest could be guessed. It doesn't give much info to the magnitude, direction, etc of the hurricane, just that it causes a lot of wind.

Just enough time to finish the burning question instructable for "How to Survive a Hurricane or Class 12 Deathstorm!", get a T-shirt and use it as a fashionable doo-rag to help you dig out of the rubble... Good luck and start hoarding now...

So when have you been to Rancho Palos Verdes, where the "Big W" sequence was shot? Anywho, I'm off to California to dig for gold which is now under a "Forward Slash" (Picture one is of the "Big W") (Picture two is of the remains of the "Big W" which is just a "Forward Slash")
