Just closed on a house a 1 1/2 months ago in Bonita Springs and realized today about the 'hurricane shutters'. I'm glad I left a key with the foreman, cause the shutters are in the garage. I was told that a service charges $1/sq ft. Is that about right?

After dealing with Hugo in Myrtle Beach and they occasional nor easter on the Jersey Shore you learn to deal with it, but ya can never take any 'storm' lightly.

Hope everyone that is down there stays safe.

The path of BD's map shows it coming right over the top of us. We are just above the "L" in "FL" on the map. It should be considerably weakened by the time it gets here. I ain't skeered.
