Living in Florida I thoroughly understand the joy of waiting for a hurricane, the fridge of food that may or may not survive and the clean up afterwards! Thankfully all we got this time was a ton of much needed rain, some flooding in areas and a few limbs down.
In 2004 we saw 4 hurricanes up close and personal. When hubby asked me what I wanted for Christmas that year, my answer was a whole house generator. Best investment we ever made. Our electricity was out about 3 hours Saturday, but we went about business as usual. It comes on automatically when the power goes out, turns off automatically when it comes back on. Three hours isn't a long time, but after Charley we were without power for 9 days!
