Why? Because things could be sooo much worse. For example you could get the FLU on top of the head cold.
Hurricane Ralph descended upon the nation of Brian on Friday. Things had been brewing a bit off shore, but sadly Brian's inhabitants paid no heed to the warnings. Ralph made landfall at Brian's southern coast somewhere around 7:00 p.m. CST necessitating IMMEDIATE evacuations of all his citizens.
Inhabitants in the central region were the first to go, exiting rapidly to the north, followed by the southern region which choose to head south. There was confusion, mayhem and even a little price gouging and looting were seen along the way.
Even though Ralph moved on after Friday, the damage had been done. Devastation was widespread, power has yet to be restored. Only the most mild mannered citizens like Soup and Turkey Sandwich are being allowed to return at this time. Mr. Spicy Chicken Wings, it doesn't look like you'll be coming back in the foreseeable future.
