00 mph to 10 mph: Stagnant.

11 mph to 25 mph: Very light breeze.

26 mph to 45 mph: ” ‘Bout time we had a bit of wind.”

46 mph to 60 mph: “Maria, get the parrots inside the house and wear a helmet, coconuts might be flying.”

61 mph to 73 mph: “Hey! Check with Channel 7 see if we have a hurricane coming.”

74 mph to 95 mph (Cat One Hurricane): “Should we install the hurricane panels? Nah! Let’s do some grocery shopping just in case.”

96 mph to 110 mph (Cat Two Hurricane): “OK, BBQ grill goes in the Living room, generator goes in the small bathroom, the dog goes in the bedroom and your mother stays on the porch.”

111 mph to 130 mph (Cat Three Hurricane): “Evacuate where? the whole state is in the path of the Hurricane. Let’s party!”

131 mph to 155 mph (Cat Four Hurricane): “Don’t worry about the roof. We have tarps, ammo and it never rains after a hurricane anyway.”

156 mph and up (Cat Five Hurricane): It must be blowing hard. I think I just saw Fidel Castro flying by.”

    Ahh, hurricane parties. I know of one that had to be rescued by the local National Guard… by swimming a M-113 out to their (now floating) trailer.
