You know when you see Jim Cantore all hell is gonna break loose.

You play in the middle of a storm, because that's the safest part.

When you have actually seen ice become more important than beer.

You arent allowed to open the fridge until the generator gets running

You section off one room with plastic so the window unit only cools one room.


The sound of chainsaws becomes an everyday experience.

Ice os almost as valuable as gold.

You can actually see the stars in pensacola.

You spend alot of time with friends outside because you dont have anything else to do.

You can wish that other people get hit by a hurricane and not feel the least bit guilty about it.

You get angry when people say "Florida isn't really part of the SOUTH" (Only place further south is Havana, people)

You're more scared of the freaks who live down the street than gators
