Irma: We Can’t Beat Her So Maybe We Should Join Her

I turned on the news this morning just long enough to determine that there is no news other than Irma…and to conclude that I don’t like Clayton’s replacement.

Irma seems determined to wreak havoc somewhere, or more likely everywhere in Florida and once again we are brought to our knees in the face of a power far greater than the government.

So this is all I can add to everyone’s hurricane preparation check list:

There are apparently a million recipes for  Hurricanes. Some are blue, some contain odd ingredients like Galliano and Blue Curaçao and fruit juices ranging from passion fruit to orange, pineapple and I even saw one recipe that called for Hawaiian Punch – do they even make that anymore?

how about a nice hawaiian punch

As a result of the many various ingredients Hurricanes (the drink) come in every color of the rainbow - red, orange, pink, and blue. But the classic (and best) is a rather unimpressive muddy brown served straight up rather than in the Mardi Gras style hurricane glass above, made famous at Pat O’Brian’s in New Orleans.

classic hurricane 

2 oz dark rum
1 oz passion fruit syrup
1 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a shaker over ice. Shake and strain into an ice-filled glass. (The original recipe calls for crushed ice, but I prefer this with cubed, since the drink doesn't get diluted as quickly.) Garnish with an orange slice and cherry.

Prayers for all of the MOTI in harms way. Take cover, keep your oil lanterns burning, and report in as soon as you can.


Be safe my friends.

There is so much reliance on algore type models tracking Hurricane Irma I fully expect to see a special news release from the Bamster proclaiming “The science is settled”. The longer the storm continues to track to the west, the safer the folks in Florida are. How many deaths will the MSM attribute to phony models if Florida is spared?

“No news other than Irma?” Was CNN one of the networks you checked? If so, it will be the first time this year they talked about anything besides Trump.
