    Generally we are pretty blessed here weather wise.
    of course, is a lot of why we're here - and is probably in part responsible for all the other reasons we're here :)

    The difference is we don't get three days warning before our local natural disasters when the earth is going to shake everything loose, so we are supposed to have our three days of water and food (should be two weeks, really) at all times.

    One thing that's going on with Sandy, I think, is that it's hitting areas that don't normally get high winds and high water. We build for the natural disasters we expect. Our house will wiggle a lot and then stand firm in an EQ, but the roof would not withstand high winds. The mid-Atlantic states, unlike Florida and the Gulf coast, don't build for hurricanes, or whatever Frankenstorm is becoming now that it's taken on other body parts.

    We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.
