If you are moving to a hurricane prone state, be sure to learn about hurricanes, how to prepare for one, property insurance costs and availability, and where the evacuation route is.
Very true.

I recall some of the retirement books I read a few years back that stated the New Orleans area had not been hit by a hurricane.

They were honest enough to add----------"however, this probably has more to do with luck than with location "

well living here in nyc we have been hit with everything from tornados, to earthquakws to hurricane sandy in just the last few years but i still like it here.

snow lately has really been at a minimum. actually i miss the fact we have such little snow fall. i really like taking my jeep out to play and snow shoe hiking.

perhaps as we age more ,we might seek a warmer climate but right now we are staying put.

Yikes . Been to the Poconos a few years back. Actually a couple of times. Tobyhanna Army Depot two times and to a resort called Paradise Stream. Fun place if anyone is interested in a love nest for a weekend.

I've lived in a snowy area only 5 years of my 66 years. I hated it, having been raised in Arizona! I live in San Antonio Texas and I realize it can get hot here...but I can live with that, at least we can go outside most days and have lots of sunny beautiful days. My daughter at the grand old age of 48 has had it with the weather in Illinois. She's stuck inside for
months cause it's too danged cold there. There's just more to deal with and also the expense of living in an area that's gets snow. No thank you...I'll stay put!
