Life is a Beach

Welcome to Hurricane Season.

Hurricanes tend to showcase human stupidity. First we have the news crews standing in the wind and rain or at the edge of a very angry surf. Sure it looks cool, but death is never far away. 100 mph wind can blow a straw through a palm tree. I bet those roof shingles or gas station signs could do some damage.

The second class of stupids are the people that build a home on the beach. I love the beach as much as the next guy. I don't like it when I can't see nature's beauty because of a house on the beach. But the stupidity comes in as the hurricane tide washes the house out to sea or across the street. The home owner cries at their loss. Seems like they had no idea.

The third degree of stupidity comes in the form of the state and federal agencies that fork over the $$ to rebuild the houses.

Get smart people!.
