A Jacksonville man in Florida parked his Smart car in his kitchen to protect it from Hurricane Dorian because he didn’t want it to “blow away”—and to prove that he can park his car there.
In a Facebook post, Jessica Eldridge said her car was parked in the garage. To avoid cleaning their garage out, her husband Patrick Eldridge proposed parking his car in their kitchen.
“I said there was no way he could. He said he could,” Jessica said. “So he opened the double doors and had it in. I was amazed that it could fit. He had it in with no problems.”
With the car in the middle of the kitchen, she had to move around it to cook and serve dinner.
“I’m hoping he will pull it out pretty soon once the wind dies down. There is room and it’s not in the way but my dogs are confused by it,” Jessica said.
Hurricane Dorian was skirting Florida’s coast Wednesday, Sept. 4, narrowly missing Jacksonville as it heads northward along the Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina coastlines.
The Category 2 storm has devastated the Bahamas, where rescue crews have only started taking the full measure of the damage.
