OMG...I love my neighbors to say this up front...but *deep breath*
Periodically about 1x year we get hit by ice storms here, that generally happens like clock work last Jan week/ first Feb week...Most of you may have seen on TV last year what it did to KY (we're in middle TN).
Now 2 outta my my 5 neighbors are from Florida on top of all else...Well all my neighbors are FREAKING out like the world is coming to an end since they seen the weather forecast (ice storm rolling in again)
What the heck people!? What have you done during hurricane season??? I may also add these people have Fireplaces....So there ya go smarty you have HEAT and guess what back in the day...guess how the mama's cooked YES on fire stoves!!! So get yourself some canned food, take the label off stick it on there. And the other 1 freaking got gas - Honey you can ignite a gas stove w/out power you know...
And the last guy, he's REALLY acting like the world is coming to a end, got himself 10 propane tanks a stack wood that'll last you all winter and his wife is filling up every jug she got with water (wonder if they realize if the power is out, the pressure from the water tower indeed does still pump it to your house
I'm serious these folks are 10-20yrs older then me, shouldn't they KNOW better...I only been here lil over 1 year and I know what to do!? And I have NO fireplace and no gas heat!
If you life in a area like this: Deal with it! Don't freak out like a total idiot over NOTHING.....Look at least year so what the power was out ~1day till they had the main lines up again....let's face it any good power line only holds SO MUCH ice its just normal to happen until such day the US built their systems underground like its common overseas...
Oh I'm just soooo annoyed by their stupidity right now
