Re: An Apology

Well said Frog,
I say do the best you can with what you have to work with... After you have done your best, "Stay alive" so I will have a better chance filing a clime and having some help getting your bow spirit out of my gunnels.
A boat can be replaced we cannot…

strident- points for that alone
Well done, but I didn't feel anything deemed insulting~
I think it would have been a fool to stay on board unless one had extreme financial constraints & that was your only option- shelters are offered for free in this country- folks should take advantage of such relative unique resources

Between the big hurricanes of the early 70s and Andrew, even people in FL became complacent and built things on the beach that did not belong there. The lesson had to be learned again. People up north have had over a generation with no serious hurricane and have forgotten or simply never experienced them. I think this is why we saw people stay in their homes on the coast and stayed aboard, lack of experience with hurricanes for which they cannot be blamed.

Most of us who deal with hurricanes every year or so strongly advise against staying aboard.
Well said, sir.
