The wind has picked-up and more importantly South Shore in Bermuda is growing its waves as we speak, or write or blog or you get it.
Colin is a comin’ and, no, that’s not a dig at your Colin buds (or Bermuda’s own Collie Buddz). It’s a Tropical Storm and it seems to have my island in its sights.
For most that means heading inside. For most that means taking in the furniture, bunking down and hoping for the best.
Not your thing? Are you looking for the storms? Well Warren Faidley does just that. A storm chaser he also offers tours!
Yep you looking for a vacation with a kick? A trip with a tornado? He’s your man and book before September and you can save $1,000.
You’re not sure what kind of storm you want to find? Don’t worry he offers the gamut:
1: Springtime storm chases and tornado chasing in Tornado Alley — you ride with Warren!
2: Chase convoy — you drive your own car or rental vehicle as part of Warren’s chase convoy during the springtime
tornado chase season.
3: Executive Monsoon Safari and Photography Adventures during the July summer thunderstorm season in
4: Executive customized chases, education and extended storm chasing during and after the normal chase seasons.
Call me crazy….no wait call him crazy, but that sounds like the last kind of holiday I would go on. But hey that’s me and that’s not you. So check it out, but not before, if you’re in Bermuda you get prepared for Colin.
What does Colin require? He’s a demanding quest. These storms are. Ugh. Give me this or I will blow your house down. Buy this or I will take out your lights. Seriously, so rude.
Luckily Bermuda’s houses are pretty prepared for the weather. A roof might go in the worst of winds, but rarely does a house go down completely. What does knock Bermudians out is the lack of electricity which means then no water.
Why? because we catch water off our roofs and it is stored in tanks under our homes. Electricity out = no water pump.
So prep one: fill your tub and other containers with water.
Prep two: buy gas for the BBQ or coals so eating isn’t a problem.
Prep three: ice and a cooler for food. I don’t think Colin’s going to be bad, but if electricity goes out food could go bad.
Finally prep four: buy canned food, food for pets and any prescriptions necessary for the next few days! Storms are tricky things and one never does know.
We can handle that Bermuda so hunker down, buy your food/beer/wine and we will get through this!
