Actually the person who’s made the funniest preparations for this hurricane is Allahpundit over at hot air.
I hit two different supermarkets today to load up on bottled water, beer, PB&J, beer, canned goods, and beer.

Maybe all that means is that the run on nonperishables is postponed until tonight, once everyone’s off work for the day, or maybe it means people aren’t taking this nearly as seriously as they should. When I called family members this afternoon to see what they’re doing to prepare, they were surprised to hear that there’s something they’re supposed to be preparing for. Dude.
