    We get hurricanes here in Florida so I know what high winds are; having to work in that enviroment for me is would be an issue.

    I had a Guard on duty for 32 hours
    Friday at 1400-Saturday at 2200 hours
    The Governor banned driving from Friday at 1600 hours, until Saturday at 1600 hours
    My Guard was safe at the Gatehouse. Gatehouse is steal and bricks

    At home I live in a rural area. No power for almost a day
    I lost numerous pine trees. By the Grace of the Good Lord
    no trees hit my home cars, or crashed down on the power lines

    At my home town 80 MPH winds. That's hurricane force winds
    The local power company stated they have not seen so
    much damage to power lines in 30 plus years.

        When my wife and I built our home we looked at Ocean Front property south of Boston
        The ocean is so very pretty on a warm summer day
        BUT along comes Irene, Sandy, and blizzards bubbling out in the Atlantic
        No thanks
        My wife and I live 30 miles inland

          No matter how many storms that come through, people will still go back to building on the water.
          You always have to watch out for the "perfect storm".

            Yup, you can bet these same idiiots http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/201...znN/story.html will build along the ocean again, and again no matter what the weather

            My wife and I love the ocean. We leave our home 30 miles from the coast on weekends in the summer time
            for a day at the beach ocean-side. But our home ain't in the Atlantic ocean. These hurricanes and snow storms?
            It is God's way of saying your too close to the beaches I created, you need to build your home somewhere else

              Some people don't get a second chance, Hurricane Sandy is all the proof you need, total devestation. I survived Hurricane Steven, I think it was called, down in the keys on marathon island back in 85' exactly one day before the assault on Grenada. It was bad and the islands were over taken by the ocean, yet Sandy seemed calm in comparison to Steven until two days later when everything was completely destroyed and gone.
              Pop Pop - It reminds me of an old statement by my Master Sergeant. "A Good Run is better then a Bad Stand".

              Sec Trainer- Pop Pop: Hope you don't mind if I quote your Master Sergeant. He was a very smart man.

              Pop Pop- Yes Sir, Thank you Senior Instructor Sec Trainer, hope you don't mind if I place your quote into my Signature?

              Sec Trainer- Permission granted, recruit. Now, police the company area!


              flat out cool..

                    Reason they keep rebuilding is Fed Govt picks up the tab, again and again.

                    No way any private ins. would cover it, unless the annual premium was 25% of total cost to re-build.

                    This has been on TV few times. As one guy said "....and it is also kinda neat that when it gets re-built it of course has all the new codes for stuff like GFI and insulation and new CO/nox detectors. And the carpet is all new, too. Like trading in your car for brand new every few years for free."
