Response to hay rick (Reply #6)

9. Amen to that. Was born and lived most of my life in Fla. When we decided to buy some land and

build a house in 1983, we purposely moved inland -- to the second lowest wind-risk district in the state. Have been side-swiped by four or five hurricanes and only lost a couple trees. Not only have the feds and Fla loosened development of barrier islands (even entire islands), but it seems to be getting worse. My previous insurer dropped me to "lower" their hurricane risk. Two weeks later, I read that the company had begun to offer policies to McMansion owners who live right smack on the beaches in St. Pete.
