    Bird bath from an upside down Christmas Tree Holder.

    I left on my bike and rode to my daughter's house.

    I cannot imagine why anyone would stay in a place that's under sea level. That just does not compute to me. I've lived through several hurricanes. Evacuated when they thought Charley was going to hit us head on--it turned and missed. Hunkered down through several lesser storms. But I'm 20 ft above sea level--under sea level, forget it.
    I'm not clumsy. It's just that the floor hates me, the table & chairs are bullies, and the wall gets in my way!

    The fact that I can't swim should give you a clue as do what I would do.

    I lived in N.O. for about 10 years, we left for major storms. Anything Cat 1 or higher. Now I live about 15 feet above sea level, we stay unless it's going to be a cat 2-3 or worse... we just sat through Cat 1 Isaac (the backside of the storm is still whistling outside as I type this) and it wasn't bad at all. Of course, I don't live in the marsh where everything floods.

    I grew up here, sat through many Cat 1 and 2 storms as a child, they don't scare me much anymore. As long as I'm 15+ feet over sea level, and the winds aren't approaching 100MPH, we're pretty much prepared.

    That minor one (IKE) had 110 mph winds.
    My old house rated for 100mph winds and I live 4 blocks from a large creek that floods.

    Come on down for the next one.
    You can baby sit the house.

    Only if you were stuck on stupid. I can think of one exception though.

    If you live in Calpatria, CA (184 feet below sea level), near the Salton Sea, and there is a hurricane barreling up the Gulf of California, I probably wouldn't worry. The mountains surrounding the Gulf are fairly high on both sides and the hurricane will probably get choked. Most importantly though, I'd make sure I wasn't in the lowest spot in Calpatria.

    I'm in the process of getting the household closed, and will be living AT sea level by October. I'm planning on spending the next year or two or forever, living the nomadic life. We're moving onto a boat and are planning on Coastal Fla and the Caribbean......maybe for good.

    I hope it is a big boat i spent much time on the water from kayaks to 20 footers and trust me a 20 footer in the middle of the ocean can get scary>I do love the water make sure you use reduncy and have back ups to back up and plenty of way to get fresh water

    My underwater base has never been affected by hurricanes. However, I mostly use the subterranean base, as it's easier to expand. There's also less chance of flooding, if an experiment goes bad.

    How about living on a fault line, or in a tornado alley? Is it different?
