    Problem is, I like living near the ocean, so theres a certain price to pay... I hate the hot weather more than I do the hurricanes... LOL.

    Nah man we'll be alright... Storm surge isnt a problem at my house, as Im on high ground about 1/4 mile from the ocean... The wind is a concern, and if this was a catagory 5 storm, we would leave... But it wont be more than a catagory 3 so.........

    Thanks for the concern brother....

    Depending on where that thing hits, he may not have power for awhile. I hope it isn't too bad for him.
