I am Glad you asked..
.. I live in an area that doesn't see Hurricanes, or tropical storms or what have you. I had a 5x10 storage space on the first floor. SSomone mentioned storage.. so here goes..
When Hurricane Irene hit. That area saw water like they never saw before.
If you look at the picture you can see the water level is about 4-5 feet high.
Make a long story short..Everyones stuff got ruined. I got a way lucky in that most of the stuff I threw out propably should have been in the garbage long ago. But I did lose all my record albums(I bought them in canada when I lived in BUffalo, b/c you guys get the imports from England and the exchange rate was 30%). A really nice dining room table and a pair of Accoustat speakers. Text books, computer manuals, some stuff I was saving for no good reason. Others lost a lot more. One guy brought all his good stuff thinking it would be safer in storage than his house. He lost high end recievers, digital camers, Ipads, cellphones, blackberrys, and about 50k in limited edition signed art prints he collected over the years. Hence, teh moral of the story is shice happens. Read your contracts and don't store expensive stuff in self storage. Those contracts are written so the onus is on the tenant.
Insurance won't cover you for floods such as this. BTW - I really logged in to explain the network conundrums and why some people experience issues w/ routers and cards. If anyones interested I'll explain, if not look at the hurricane pics.
