Preparation is the key to success.

(last night)

Me: Hi! So, how's the weather?

My Mom: Yeah. REAL NICE.

Me: So, have you been doing tons of crazy hurricane prep?

My Mom: Well, I stocked up on scotch.

Me: Excellent!

My Mom: They're saying we could get up to ten, twelve inches of rain.

Me: That's a lot of rain.

My Mom: The tide is coming in at two in the morning, so me and Mr. Chivas, or is it Mr. Regal? Well. We will be up at 2 a.m., watching the tide come in to see if it rises over the sea wall.

Me: Don't let the hurricane spill your drink.

My Mom: It's a concern. (deep sigh)

If this is any indication of what hurricane season will be like this year, it's a good thing we have humor in our family (and Mr. Regal).
