Just before a storm they'd stock up on flashlights, batteries, snack foods, toilet paper. And within a week after the storm passed they'd want to return it all for a refund. Lather, rinse, repeat, every hurricane/storm. But they always had enough money for partying, booze and nightclubbing. Seemed to be a quirk of the entire Gulf Coast..
Living on the east coast, near Cocoa Beach, I can confirm that this is true for all of Florida.
