Earthquakes, forest fires, cops who love to ticket construction equipment, taxes, firearm restrictions...I'll take hurricanes any day...

Pretty sure its just that over here on the left coast we are tougher because we have Earthquakes, forest fires, cops who love to ticket construction equipment, taxes, firearm restrictions. We have to be or we would move to the right coast.

If there was a perfect place to live we would be complaining about the over crowding along with all that other stuff.

It's usually the words coming out that cause a problem.

fortunately we live inland of where Mathew past east of us and all we had was a tropical storm with winds only gusting to about 50 mph. My daughter, on the other hand, lives in Orlando which got more severe weather, but luckily only lost her fence and power for a little while. So all in all we lucked out

Glad to here, still scary for a lot of people further north.
