Tell you what, I think that what I perceive as callousness is really a misunderstanding on your part on the devastation of a big hurricane. Depending on which way Ike turns and its strength why dont you come on down and enjoy the weather.
Maybe I am just on edge because I am stressed from the storm and the current tornado warning I always found you to be a good guy before tonight.
We do not have natural seawalls here now any elevation to speak of. I am 200 ft above sealevel and thre is nothing to slow those winds down Do yall have 100mph gusts or 100mph sustained winds?
Do your storms do this?
How about this?
Here is map showing the wind speeds.
Do yall get 101-150 MPH winds with yur storms. I live near magnolia on this map. Our airport reported gusts over 120 mph and I am a long way from the gulf. So how bad are your winter storms?

As far as mature trees being toppled does two or three hundred old Doug fir count???
But even with all of this going on we still donít make national news after all its just a PNW winter stormÖ
Oh forgot to add on the PNW coast we get rain most of the year that why its green here most of the year thatís another reason we donít build houses in bottom land let along below sea level. If we did it rains so much we would need scuba gear just to seat in the dinning roomÖ
