Choice Quotes

I did a bit of radio listening during the storm, as it was the only way to keep up with what was happening while the power was out.  Here are some of the best quotes I heard:

"X number of customers are without power.  You can check for more information and maps of where the outtages are."
[That's really easy to do when you don't have power.  Really.]

"Temperatures today?  It hardly matters.  Rain and wind, on the other hand, ..."
[During a mid-storm weather report.]

Guy #1: "FEMA is now telling us that they don't have the blue tarps.  They don't know where they are, but they will try to find out.  Does that sound familiar?"
Guy #2: "Hey now, no editorializing..."
[They still don't have blue tarps.  Apparently there is a massive blue tarp shortage.  Same as there was three years ago.  Also, blue is apparently the only acceptable tarp color.  I guess the other colors don't keep out rain.]

[On people being stuck at home, it being a holiday, and most people not having work the next day]
"There tends to be a little drinking going on.  You've got a lot of people with a lot of booze."
[Really?  In Louisiana?  No way!]

It is never boring living in this state! =)
