CD,

Thanks for all of your advice. I just want to let the Floridians know that Florida has a new program: http://www.mysafefloridahome.com/ They will come out for FREE and inspect your home for hurricane readiness (ie. roof, windows, garage door...) We just had ours done last week, and should have our report in 4-6 weeks. Ironically, once you receive your report, you can receive a grant up to $5,000 for replacement door, windows, roof improvements, etc. that they recommend (pretty much, it is 50% replacement reimbursement). We'll keep you guys posted on how the whole process goes, as we were planning to replace our old windows, patio and garage doors anyways (since they do not meet Florida hurricane standards.)
