As Mrs, Irma takes a wack at southern Flordia, must of us will need to be hunkered down in our homes. Desperate for entertainment once the power goes out, Some good whiskey or Vodka will always have your back.
Welcome to the Hurricane Irmas survival drinking game! Not for the faint liver. Here are the requirements, home stocked with essentials (Your Crafty beers, booze or what ever is your favorite drink), portable battery operated radio, and a bath tub full of ice for drinks on the rocks of course. The fun is endless here because you won't remember a damn thing anyway.
Did your local newscaster/ meteorologist just say any of the following? "hunker down", "palm fronds", or "Under cone of uncertainty". -Sip that drink.
See anyone on tv prepping sand bags or slapping ply wood on their windows? -Another sip, please.
Did your local weatherman just tell you Again that Irma is one of the strongest storms recorded in history? And this is the 100th time you have heard this today? Roll your eyes. -drink three drinks!
Did you just get a new weather advisory from the national hurricane center? -Sip if there is good news gulp if there is bad news.
Does the local news show images of storm surge? -Sip
Downed power lines you say? Palm fronds on cars have been reported? -shot time. Take two shots.
See an announcement for a shelter that's open and taking in pets too! -Celebratory swig and a shot.
Are you getting a whiff of the smell because you don't have any power and the flies are a comin? -Sip.
Ah finally did the Flordia governor just give you the "all clear" to join the rest of humanity and go outside again? -Three drinks will be needed.
Now when you do pry back the shutters and go out to inspect the damage take a drink with you, because you are gonna laugh, be shocked and probably cry. -Take three sips, but finish before you come back inside.
Congrats you won the game! Are you still awake?
