    That drone footage of the Mexico Beach FL area shows the wholloping they took. Whole buildings moved around the city blocks. Destructive this one was. How do you keep yourself (much less your classic cars) safe when the wind blows like that?

    I saw that drone footage, and it makes me wonder why the hell anyone would live in those south-eastern coastal cities. I feel bad for the people there and I can't imagine having my life disrupted by that kind of weather every fall, and possibly having everything you own wiped out. That said, my wife just made me buy her a "park model" RV (tiny home) that's being moved to Rockport Texas today. That's where Harvey made landfall and devastated the town a year ago. Her parents live in an RV park down there and she wants a place to stay when she visits.

    I just hope they don't move to Colorado or Montana.

    Thing is, this was a once in a generation (or longer) type storm and the hardest to hit the FL panhandle since 1850. So those who know forget and many don't know. Just like Crystal Beach near Galveston from Ike back in 2008. Wiped out blocks and blocks of homes due to the storm surge, not the wind. Just leveled them, not even much debris left. And just like Mexico Beach, a handful of structures still standing that were recently built to take it. Now much of it has been rebuilt. Same deal on the Mississippi coast from Katrina. Remember too that many of these on the beach were vacation homes not permanent residences.
