Deja Vue ? This could be another Alex. Looks like the same path for now but things change.

We can hope it does not develop. Looks like the low pressure area just south of the gulf coast is not going to develop; I should have good weather for my trip to Destin.

I am in Houston. We had 80 mph winds for 5 hours. The fence was totaled and the shingles on the roof were in a bad way, but we got lucky there. We needed a new roof and the insurance paid for it. I don't want to see one like that again. No AC for a week. That was rough.

I can relate to the no a/c thing. In 2004, we were without electricity for 17 days. We had a generator to power the lights and we could run the bedroom window shaker a/c. We couldn't run the main ac, though. We could run the microwave if we turned off the bedroom a/c. The generator used 10 gallons of gasoline (petrol) per day.

Fortunately, we had an artesian well so we had water and flushed the toilet with a bucket. We had bottled water supplied by FEMA for drinking. We ate lots of MRE's!

Hurricanes are the exact reason why I only lasted 3 years in Florida (2006-2009). I only faced 2 nasty tropical storms, both were only 5-10MPH from being a hurricane. I didn't face any flooding or anything where I lived. I just couldn't take the storm after storm after storm that could be "the one".

I grew up in Florida; hurricanes are just part of the landscape like earthquakes on the west coast, tornadoes in tornado ally, and blizzards in the northern tier of states. I wouldn't trade the hurricanes for the blizzards.

It seems like every area of the US has some type of disaster for that region. I was trying to think, what does Arizona, New Mexico have? Aren't they pretty "disaster free"?

I think you are probably right. They have heat and plenty of it.

Arizona has Illegal Aliens and New Mexico has Real Aliens.

I don't know, February had a record for snow fall this year in Ohio. I quite enjoyed it.

With Florida the summers are always rainy and incredibly unbearable due to the heat and humidity. The winters you have "season" which is where all the "snow birds" come down and clog up traffic and cause accidents. You also have all the dry heat in the winter, which means a LOT of brush fires. I recall one time Alligator Alley was shut down for a couple days due to those fires. Soon those beaches on the west coast are going to be destroyed. There's also lots of crime from the illegal immigrant problem in Florida. They bring drugs, prostitution, rape, robbery and murder.

Let's not forget the bugs! First house I lived in (Lehigh Acres) we always had huntsman spiders, brown widows and black widow spiders. Second house wasn't so bad but the third house I rented I had a ghost ant infestation. I had to use Ant Kil with boric acid to get rid of them.
