I have lived in Florida for 45 years and have lived through enough hurricanes. *Katrina is the last. *I have had enough of living in a dark unairconditioned house and eating cold ham and cheese sandwiches for ten days. *That is why I sold my house and rented an apartment on the beach.
When the next hurricane is four days away, I will simply lock the door, drive to the airport, park my car on the fourth floor of the parking garage and board a plane for Vegas or Reno.
This is a photo of the eight to ten foot waves. *Notice the offshore winds blowing the tops off.
