I was talking to a friend yesterday about the impending hurricane and she told me that she's going to sleep in the basement during the duration of the hurricane.
I was a little confused because my initial reaction was why would she do that? People are trying to avoid the basement because the heavy downpour might cause flood and you don't want to be there when the rain soaks up all the basement carpet here.
Turns out that she's sleeping in the basement because there is a huge tree right outside her second floor bedroom window and if the tree topples, she'll be dead.
I find that really funny. Maybe I have a dark sense of humor.
