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.

No fucks given at Jax Beach

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!

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
