Anchoring in storms?

Hey,

So if I understand this, you bought an anchor so that if a storm (big storm) is going to hit, you will move your boat from the dock to somewhere else, where you will deploy your anchor (or anchors) and ride the storm out on the boat?

Personally, I would much rather leave my boat at my home port, prepare the boat as best I could (remove sails, extra lines, etc.) and then go home.

No way would I choose to be on my boat in a hurricane if I had any other options
