Shoutout to the one car going the other way during a hurricane evacuation

Where are they going?

Hurricane Matthew is happening, and it’s time to get out of Florida, according to pretty much everyone. President Obama,  NOAA and Florida Gov. Rick Scott have all emphasized that this is no time to screw around. “Time is up. You have to evacuate now,” said Scott,  “There is absolutely no reason not to leave.  If you chose to stay and try to ride the storm out, your life is at risk.”

And so everyone did. Or almost everyone. While most people were headed out of the state, trying to avoid the 100-mph winds and risk of death, a lone car was spotted going the other way.  

Maybe there’s a good reason for it. We don’t know, but we can certainly speculate. 

Haha. Oh god. Well, whatever this person’s fate turned out to be, it now includes becoming a meme

It’s basically a newsier version of every meme about someone rushing somewhere: “Bae come over” jokes, Bernie Sanders walk-running to the train, even a new gif of President Obama seeming to forget something as he leaves the Oval Office.

If you don’t think too long or too seriously about what could compel someone to drive back into a hurricane, it’s funny and relatable. Sometimes we use humor to make the best of a tragic situation, even one as grim as a lost Fleshlight and porn collection.
