When asking a friend with a beach place in North Carolina how he weathered the latest hurricane, i was instead regaled with a lovely tale of stupidity…
A fashion industry icon, living in posh digs in Manhattan, was doing his best to heed the hurricane preparation recommendations. Emergency management guidelines encourage residents in the path of a hurricane to “fill the bathtub with water”.
Filling his tub with several cases of Evian bottled water, he just simply didn’t get the point of putting the bottles in the tub.
“Maybe it’s to protect them from potential hurricane damage? Keep the bottles from breaking? I don’t know… I just don’t get it.”
