One of the big problems with living in Florida is of course the Hurricane season. We have enjoyed many hurricane seasons and dealt with at least 5 of them. I usually do not remember names, but last year's was Matthew. I remember because we have a Grandson Matthew.
The human population amazes me. Being raised in North Carolina I can remember very few heavy snows. The most that happens is the roads are slick for a couple days, but even with a heavy snow things are back to normal in at the MOST, three days. However, let the forecast call for snow, 1 inch or twelve, and the store shelves were emptied of Bread, eggs and milk. Of course that was before bottled water was the ‘THING’. Now bottled water is added to that list. Also the gas stations are inundated with folks afraid there will be no gas.
In Florida I cannot understand why, residents who are very concerned, do not stock up on ‘gallons’ of bottled water at the beginning of Hurricane Season and store it. Personally, if we did not have the motor home, where we store 50 gallons of tap water, I would save milk jugs and save as many gallons of tap water I think would be needed.
Please forgive me if you are a bottled water enthusiast, but I may die early (I hope not) but we use tap water everywhere we go unless me or my girl are upset at the taste or smell. In some parts of Arizona we did buy water. Years ago if it had been available we would have bought water in Biloxi, Mississippi and most parts of Florida. Presently we have had no problem with Florida.
If someone buys water I am not offended. We keep bottled water in the motor home and in our home in Florida for visitors.
I just have never seen the need (for me) for bottled water. We are filling our landfills with plastic, that is for sure.
That is not a soap box. I don’t berate folks who drink bottled water, I just do not feel a personal need to do it.
Thanks for waiting for the OLD MAN, it takes me a while to catch up with society!
When buttons were invented, they were very expensive and worn primarily by the rich. Since most people are right-handed, it is easier to push buttons on the right through holes on the left. Because wealthy women were dressed by maids, dressmakers put the buttons on the maid's right!
