last storm that came through, dumped so much water in our area, we had a production line to scoop all the water out of our porch before it came in our
house. it was about an inch and a half from seeping over the door stoop into my daughter's bedroom. suffice it to say, we got the lead out and spent
the next 6 hours wet vacuuming and bucket brigading out the water. it didn't do any damage to our house but everyone was in alot pain the next day
(water is heavy after that many buckets for that long, non-stop).
a young teenage girl that was friends with one of our daughter's friends, died in that storm, when the water weakened the structure of their house
and a two-by-four fell, whacked her in the head and killed her dead. that not only negatively impacted her family, but all her little friends.
a hurricane came through here a couple years ago that tore our fence out and we had to pay to replace it because insurance had a 5000 deductable on
it. we were already struggling financially, so that just added to our burden. we can't afford for anyting to go wrong. we don't have a power
generator and couldn't afford one anyway. we need the hurricane's to stay away from people or lands on which people live. preferably, i'd vote for
no more hurricanes anywhere
