That would make sense, but it's not practical the other 8 years at a time that we don't have hurricanes. Most places here do have storm windows and some even have functional shutters. This thing has petered out significantly, so all should be fine. She's about 75 miles south of us right now and barreling this way at a slumberous 13mph. I heard cracking coming from the one big tree in my front yard. I hope she holds out or just breaks and gets it over with so we can clear it in day light. I live on the main stretch for emergency vehicles when the surface streets are shut down. That tree going would really stink. As a side note, the dog is loving it. He's caught a frog a few minutes ago in the garage.

We got power back early Tuesday. Now, we're leaving everything shut off and just enjoying the nice weather. Some areas around here won't have power for another week. So I consider us lucky.
