Ah, the age old question as when to put up storm shutters?
This depends on your tolerance of TV Weather experts and/or your own “self worth”.
But a simple guide;
If your on the Coast line or in a Condo, I highly recommend it but if you are off the coast and in a Single Family, well it becomes a bit of a gray area.
This gray area usually coincides with your level of testosterone and or lack there of.
I have the “Javi Plan” and it has worked out quite well for me over the years; accept for Hurricane Andrew…..which I caused…..more on this later (tip 1)
The “Javi Plan” consist of gathering as much info as possible from all the pros and then making a rash decision 2 hrs prior to the storm hitting.
It’s the Miami way and has been in practice since some idiot decided to build a home in this great swamp and wondered what all the fuss was about.
No really it’s more scientific then that; it involves what the category of the storm is, where it’s heading and how much scotch is in the house.
I have customers that actually drive by and see if I am implementing the plan, if I am…….panic ensues.
If I’m outside drinking a single malt, relax it’s not up to a Cat 4 yet…
