      Sorry for the H-cane hammering,
      Just move up here to beutiful ole New England and you only have to deal with a bit of snow now and then for 5 months/yr.
      AND never more than 4 feet at once....
      I would not live anywhere else myself.
      You can shovel it out of your way, what you do with all that water?? nothin..

      Good luck, any small help this Bostonian can do or fabricate for you Floridians, let me know. Have full wood and metal shop...

        I live by Daytona Beach and lost power for about 4 hours Sunday (our generator missed up and nothing open to get parts). I sure got lucky this time around. The last two was a total of around 12 days with no power. I was in the shop doing some beadblasting today. Hang in there noob hope is on the way.

        P.S. no more hurricanes please........

          OK here are the totals :

          Charley: 5 Days No Power/Cable/Internet
          Frances: 2 Days No Power/ 11 Days no Cable/Inernet
          Jeanne : 38 hours No Power / Still No Cable/Internet

          heheh Power company are getting better, Cable is slacking off! I just bought an Angle Grinder this monring before work so I can strip some parts. Back to work this weekend. If I get the trees/limbs cleared out.
