Office Hurricane Procedures

(Sent to me from a co-worker)

* As we watch the progress of the storm, the following are the firm's guidelines based upon the hurricane's intensity.

Hurricane Category #1
No excuse for being late. Leave earlier to give extra time to avoid fallen trees and limbs.

Hurricane Category #2
Due to the horizontal rain, you may wear jeans.

Hurricane Category #3
Whereas most of the area will be flooded we suggest you avoid wearing open toe sandals when coming to work. Canoes will be provided to get to the
building safely without getting wet.

Hurricane Category #4
More than likely there will be no electricity. Given that, we will have manual typewriters available to all staff members. Please take extra caution and wear water-proof make-up if Category 4 or above.

Hurricane Category #5
Velcro will be provided to keep you attached to your chairs when the windows blow out. For those that survive, we will have chocolate cake at 3:00 pm in
the kitchen.

Have A Nice Day!

Current Mood: gigglygiggly

For a moment I thought that memo was serious. Some companies are nearly that stupid.

Kris--Oh, man, I'd hate to work at someplace like that! :D

The state government is actually pretty good about closing the offices down when the weather gets bad, thank goodness--which it might be, later this week, if Ike follows the current track prediction. The track has it coming in just outhwest of us, which usually means it will curve off toward the east. Right now, I'm expecting Houston to get a direct hit, but it's early days yet.

I feel sorry for the Louisiana folks, though. They might all have to evacuate again. That'd be annoying for them.


Oh, Man

Y'all need to build a few arks and keep them handy for times like this. At least Houston isn3 built below sea level like much of NO is.


I love it! This could have come from the school district office. Except adding in that the canoes will be oversized so that they can transport students as well. :)

Hope it misses Houston but if you need to evacuate come visit me in Florida!

Hey, I was watching the report on the hurricane on MSN, and I started thinking about you. I hope you and your family are all right. Stay safe!

Ardys--Hi! We're okay, so far--no rain; just some high wind, though it is getting cloudy like a thunderstorm, finally. For most of the day, it's just been overcast.

Mark and I live in the southwest corner of Houston, so we're not in an evacuation zone, and we don't expect major flooding in our area. We're just going to stay here and ride it out.
