Many of you know the phrase, “When thunder roars, go indoors.” For those of you who don’t know the phrase, it is meant to be easily remembered and remind you to be safe when a thunderstorm is heading your way.
What you may not know is that the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) in combination with a conference for TV meteorologists were so inspired by the success of “When thunder roars, go indoors” that they came up with a new list of phrases to remind people that it is definitely better to be safe than sorry when it comes to the powerful forces of nature.
If you see a tornado, you’d better a-go-go.
You don’t have carte blanche when there could be an avalanche.
If you notice hail, local dealerships will soon have a sale.
Don’t be insane, respect the hurricane.
Is that lightning? That sh** is frightening.
Are you safer now having read these informative quips? As any number of important government officials at NOAA would say, ‘Don’t be a dip, let me know what you think of the quip.’
