So glad I don't live in Florida anymore. No hurricanes in forever, yet homeowners insurance companies act like we got hit every 3 months.

Agreed. Just about any hurricane/tropical storm that hit Florida, would come back out over the ocean and hit us.

Just because it wasn't a Cat 4 or 5 doesn't make it any less destructive. Ask those Sandy survivors.

Whatever Monsanto-funded time-traveler that is manipulating the HAARP controls at the behest of the Bilderberger Group is doing us all a meteorological favor.

Florida home insurance is way too high to consider unless your home was built late enough to meet more recent codes. That was my experience....

It's been over 10 years since a hurricane of any category has hit Florida. I personally find that very remarkable, since Florida is often the first place that pops into many people's minds when they think "hurricane". Since Wilma hit back in October 2005, we've seen hurricanes hitting Texas, Louisiana, North Carolina, and even New Jersey while Florida gets off scott free. Wonder when their luck will run out.

A lot of people are thinking now that Florida will never be struck again...ever.

It is good the United States has not been stricken by a major hurricane in that time. The possibility of a major hurricane strike always exists.

Nature always finds a way to return to the mean i.e. at some point there are going to be a ton of hurricanes.
