Surviving the sugarcane.

After waking up this morning, I nervously reached for the radio, dreading the worst possible way to start the day.

Click.

The entire state of Florida is under a Sugarcane Warning.

Dammit.

Although Sugarcane Tootsie has weakened to a Category 1 storm, flooding remains the primary threat. Some areas may get up to 3 feet of sugar.

Double dammit.

Trucks from Hershey’s, Nestle and Reese’s are standing by to collect the sugar as quickly as possible to avoid damage from flooding.

Triple dammit.

And whatever else you do, PLEASE keep your children indoors to avoid hefty dentist bills later.

Good to know.

Sugarcane season runs through November 30, after which begins candycane season that brings dangerous floods of candy canes.

Click.

I turned off my radio, regretting not having moved to the west coast of the United States where it floods gum drops.
