Florida weather in the summer and how to survive the daily rain showers and storms is fairly simple. Every year at the start of hurricane season Floridians are reminded to check their supplies and be prepared.
Each year a new hurricane guide is published with all the info and reminders of what we Floridians should do to be prepared for loss of electricity and severe weather.
This seasonal guide has current emergency information, phone numbers, and all the storm names that someone has picked out for the year (who gets paid to do that? And just how much do they get paid??).
The season lasts for 6 months and when you think about how long that is, you should just be prepared all the time! That way you don’t have to go broke looking for supplies when a storm is imminent.
Be prepared to survive Florida weather
Here in Central Florida, when you see people leaving the grocery store with more than one or two gallons of water in their grocery cart you know you better turn on the news to see if a storm is coming.
It is kind of comical to see the patterns and habits of people year after year, and the most important things to have besides water are:
matches or lighters
a freezer full of ice
generator for when the power is out for a while
an oscillating fan
Then just sit back, relax and have a drink, because most of the time these storms just pass right by us.
