I voted. One thing I must say for areas like Brooksville, they get nary a hit from hurricanes while we on coast get hammered.

For the last big one, my ISP was down for 1 mos. Electricity for a week. Spring Hill had a day with out phone. Overnight w/o electricity.

Yes, thanks! As someone moving to FL in a couple of months, a hurricane sub-forum would be very helpful.

Please remember that we do have hundreds of individuals that visit our Florida forum. Please vote and I will keep it open until 06/06/07 to allow all the Florida/visiting members to voice their view.

Please place a sticky so everyone gets a chance to provide feedback...

Thank you

Sounds like a good idea as long as it doesn't become the type forum just to tell war stories and complain.

Probably won't matter but I agree with DeLaSalle. There is a lot of info available regarding preparedness for any type of natural disaster. It's disconcerting to me that we humans seem to focus so much of our energy on negative issues. Let's stock up on batteries (rechargeable ones), flashlights, water and dry goods and simply radiate loving energy and enjoy life.

And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.

Why rechargeable ones?

I dunno, Cocoa Beach water was pretty cool over Memorial Day weekend... low-mid 70's. Since you moved to North Carolina, you're not exactly escaping hurricanes now are you?

Seems to me we need a sub-forum for the housing bubble over a sub-forum for hurricanes.


I think the thread is good enough.
