Hurricane Irma Brought Out The Humor In Some Floridians.
If there's one thing Floridians know how to do besides soak up the sun, it's how to handle a hurricane. From Andrew on August 24th, 1992, to Charley, Ivan, Jeanne, Dennis, Wilma, and recently, Irma, Floridians will either get out of dodge, or board up the windows and brave the storm. But during Irma's bout of destruction, folks decided to face the storm with a bit of humor. So, as the category three hurricane headed towards them, Florida residents spray painted messages on their boarded-up windows, and they're absolutely hilarious. But it wasn't just residents, even businesses got into the spirit of things.
Looks like there are only two ways to seek shelter at this home.
But you're not likely going to find too many folks who are willing to give up either of these things up so easily, not even to find shelter from the horrible storm.
Some businesses proved that they were real troopers during Irma.
Much like captains are willing to go down with the ship, these business owners were willing to go down with their business, or at least, the letters on this sign.
This sign totally reminded us that there's another looming threat bigger than Irma.
But instead of fighting fire with fire, Floridians seem to be willing to use Mother Nature's fury, but only if the storm cooperates, and doesn't downgrade into a tropical storm during the long journey.
One of the reasons Floridians are so awesome is that they look at the bright side of things.
Irma might not have been Santa Claus, but Christmas did come early for one person who was gifted a trampoline, which was more or less intact.
Irma was a real party pooper when it came to Sunday's NFL game.
But this family didn't allow the Hurricane to dampen their team spirit, particularly for the Buffalo Bills, who were playing and has had its ups and downs, but never give up.
