As I watch the news tonight I see that Georga has been hit by tornados. I guess when these large storms come up thier is really no were to run. I was speaking with a friend that has, or I should say had water front property in New Orleans before the storm struck and he had come to grips with the fact that he would be rebuilding. As long as we have our lives everthing else is secondary.
The lesson I learned is that I will never belive a weather person when thay say the we don't need to worry about this little tropical storm. I like a fool did not put up my storm shutters and during the hight when it hit Ft.Lauderdale The fencing on the garage side of my house blew down with one of the post missing my unprotected garage window by about two inches and coming to rest leaning on the track that is used to mount my stom shutters for that window. So with my wife telling me not to go out I put on my rain suite and managed to get some shutters over the window, a lot of fun in a driving rain and wind gust to 70 or so MPH. But I was being driven by the fear that if that window blew out the 40 would be open to the storm along with the tools, the motor and all the parts and components in my garage. I still have nightmares.
