OOh, I remember driving on 75 in pouring (torrential) rain when we moved here. very, very scary; definitely required a guardian angel. we were in Houston last weekend. around the same temp as here. We were sitting on the lanai last night watching the sunset, then watching the rain and lightning; quite the show. Welcome home; enjoy!

Yup, those rains with the huge raindrops, blowing sideways, makes a periscope seem a lot more useful than an umbrella.

Welcome to all those new to the area!

Well, found out something new today, and that is why out doors open out instead of in. Hadn't thought about it but makes sense. Still don't like it though.

I don't like the doors opening out either but if it keeps our doors from blowing in during a storm I guess it's worth it. I so wanted to put in a screen door but having it on the inside just isn't attractive. I also don't like the look of screening the entry outside. Oh well.

My screen door is on the outside. It's a decorative 2 door screen door. They open out. My front doors open in. I don't like that front screen enclosure either. Hmmmm maybe mine is not the right way.

You're not alone. My house was built around 1978 and has an inward-opening front door. I'm not sure when they changed the code to have the doors open outward. I've heard that you can't even buy an inward-opening door at H.D. or Lowes unless it's special order.

Update: no call from Old Dominion, who is moving the trailer. Called them. Yep, truck is here at our terminal in FL, but you won't get it until next week sometime. Seems that delivery is not the problem. Rather, they are shuffling around the ramps, have a shortage due to the high number of people moving in. That is OK, went to,the laundromat yesterday, going over to Englewood Beach today. Would drive up to Clearwater Beach but want to let Arthur move further north. Lots of rain in the afternoon still coming off.

Tomorrow is Fishermans Village, food, drink, fireworks.
