2. I learn a little more from each storm.

Floyd proved what I've known. If you lose power (and I will lose power), plan on at least 5 but have supplies for 14 days.

Mathew showed me that I can handle a surge of 10-15' without so much as a drop on my street or near my house. It also told me what tree in my yard to remove, check.

Irma confirmed what I knew. I can handle <15' surge, power might be out a long time, and that tree would've been on my house had I not removed it last February.

When another Cat 2 or 3 comes this way, I'll re-evaluate and have a plan and supplies.
