Hurricane Season – Part of the Normal Florida Lifestyle

I saw a poll this morning on hurricane preparedness. It basically asked if folks had purchased their supplies yet (Season starts June 1st). The results – 16% are already prepared.

If you have ever lived here in Florida and a hurricane threatened the area you know what it is like to go to the local Publix or Wal-Mart for food and water or to Lowes or Home Depot for plywood to pick up supplies. Chaos may be a light description.

So as June approaches, do yourself a favor and get ready now.

There are plenty of resources available with information on hurricane supplies and preparation. Here are a few to get you started.

Hurricanes are not fun and can be dangerous. But, as I was told by a former client about moving to Florida from Connecticut,…”You can run or hide from a hurricane but the snow and cold just stays!”

Be prepared. Stay safe.
