What is the appropriate reaction to this tidbit. Laugh then cry. Cry then laugh. Shrug and move on to the next website? I'll post the link below as it would be hard to believe a statement this idiotic without seeing it for yourself.

Puddintame, I don't think you have ever been real close to a hurricane, especially one in the Leeward Islands. It doesn't matter if you are y2k compliant if the 'puters have landed on the east coast of Puerto Rico!!

Got tie downs???

(1) Yes, I think that Y2K may be associated with high wind...especially with what I've been seeing coming out of Washington, DC! (2) A hurricane plan isn't a bad place to START...especially if you are dealing with recovery from a total infrastructure loss. It also encourages the local population to stockpile food.
