South Florida is famous for a lot of things, hot bodies, sunny weather, beaches, Cubans, Mr.305.But it is notorious (especially among locals) for its mid summer storms. For the everyday Miamian the monotonously crappy weather gets a little old. We know all the sunken areas that collect water, we know not to park on the grass unless you have four wheel drive and we also know that after a storm mosquitoes multiply in number. Like I said, boring. So I have invented a somewhat morbid driving game!
ROAD KILL OR PALM FRAWN?
You see, Miami has the perfect weather for growing a variety of palm trees and our neighborhood landscapes take full advantage of that fact. They are EVERYWHERE. The problem is after a storm their frawns tend to get scattered all over the roads and from a distance they kind of look like road kill, especially if it’s still wet outside.
Here’s what you do. As you’re driving find a suspicious looking object on the street, guess whether it’s a palm frawn or road kill since there is an upsurgance of the two after a storm.
That’s it. that’s the game! Thanks for playing!
