How Florida Prepared for Hurricane Irma: The Most Memorable Images

You know the usual hurricane preparations: hanging shutters, boarding up your windows with plywood, stacking sandbags. But in Florida, nothing is ever that boring. Plenty of Floridians put their own spin on storm prep — often with hilarious or head-scratching results.

Best Meme: The internet's favorite meme made an IRL appearance in Port St. Lucie.

Most Miami: Street art + the University of Miami Ibis + Collins Avenue + angry, unfounded braggadocio = peak Miami.

Most Baller: Gotta protect your spinners, bro.

Best Priorities: Milano's in Jacksonville Beach knows survival is pointless if you don't have snacks.

Most Pious: What deserves more protection, your home on Earth or your eternal soul? These folks made their choice.

Most Fetch: These folks went full Mean Girls on their plywood preparations. Irma? She doesn't even go here!
