Show up at my house unannounced at the next sign of a cat 4 hurricane and find out how long I’ve lived in Florida. 😬
To follow up on my earlier post, we partied for the hurricane. As a young freshman from NJ I was just intersted in the party. But just 3 months later, as a cold January morning produced about a 1/4 inch of frost, all classes were cancelled. Mainly because the government didn't want to come in and if school was open they had to come in. I couldn't believe it. Frost cancelled school.Let's see them tackle snow tho...
The only hurrican we left for was hugo. Only because dad had a realtor convention in charrlott and he wanted us to go stay with grandma in Bishopville where the eye went through.Hurricane parties are awesome, the last one that hit was like a CAT 2, me and my neighbor were in his garage drinking. I was in a CAT 4 Hugo when I lived in Charleston, so not scurred
I don’t know about the rest of the stuff, but that bulge on Chad is pretty accurate.
I mean, the dog has to pee and I’m not sending her out there by herself.I rode out the last three hurricanes. Closest was Michael and we had 80 mph winds knockings pines down. I went outside at one point to see, and then I realized I could've been florida man in flipflops killed by a falling tree just because I wanted to "feel the wind."
They hold up pretty good in storms. Until they don’t and you get hit with a $100k assessment.Came to Orlando in 2010. Wife has been passed away two years, and both sons will soon be out. Big house, big yard blah blah. Too much for me though I've said elsewhere I might rent rooms.
Does anyone know how the Condos in NSB hold up during a massive storm? I thought about getting a 2BR, as we all work from home now anyway. I know the HOA sucks, but I was curious how they held up during storms? I was walking the beach one day and noticed some have built-in metal pull-downs to cover Windows.
I spent one night and day in Naples. Hottest I've ever been in my life. And I'm a native Alabamian. How did you stay 30 years?I’m only leaving if it’s a cat 4 or 5, lived in Naples for 30 years before moving up to where I am now ( central FL). I’ve been through plenty of hurricanes, Andrew, Charlie, Wilma, and Irma. Things definitely changed once we had children, I wouldn’t take a chance with them where before I could hunker down in our closet if I had to.
We always took a few vacations to the mountains in northern Georgia, always needed a break from the heat but once you were in it you got used to it.I spent one night and day in Naples. Hottest I've ever been in my life. And I'm a native Alabamian. How did you stay 30 years?
Exactly. New guy on our team moved down from Jersey and didn't understand why we were all in long sleeves the other night at a happy hour. Being from Jersey 35 years ago I explained how quick your blood thins. Told him I don't go in my pool until its upper 80s, he couldn't grasp that. Anything under 70 I am button up.We always took a few vacations to the mountains in northern Georgia, always needed a break from the heat but once you were in it you got used to it.
What congenital disease does Chad have?
