Mr. Ed - sounds like you want to move to New Jersey. We aren't susceptible to any of those maladies and as far as snow, we might get a good dumping every five years or so, but nothing like back when I was a kid. During the last two years, my trusty snow blower was used a single time when we had about 8 inches. Yup, com'on up. Weather is nice. People are friendly (sort of), Melco's NJ training office is 30 minutes from my house, and we don't have a single AMAYA tech living in the state. Sounds like a dream place for you, huh? Tom Excuse me.... but..... What? I don't speak "Jive". Dear Herb (& Peaches), and the Amaya User's Group, This was definitely like reliving a bad dream. Although, since we decided to leave the bowl of New Orleans 2.5 years ago, this time wasn't so bad. I only lost one tree, my fences are blown down, and my yard is a wreck with everybody elses leaves and branches (my leaves and branches were sent to somebody elses house). Oh and the kids 15' playhouse is on it's face and twisted. I should be able to recover it with some bubble gum and rubber bands. Our electricity is back on and fortunately what we left in the fridge is still cold. After Katrina there was no salvaging the fridge as everything inside had died. What's interesting here is that when you look around outside, it appears as though it's the end of the "fall season". All of the trees have been "shaken' down" so-to-speak and are missing a great deal of their leaves. It almost looks like it should be cool outside, but no, it's still hot. Driving home yesterday, we saw billboards blown out, fallen electical lines, trees fallen on houses, business signs knocked down, trees snapped in half, and along the interstate we saw mobile homes rolled upsidedown. These are only a few reasons to evacuate. Hey guys, I sincerely appreaciate all of the concern and offers. We got lucky on this one. My aunt in Virginia asked, "why do you live where hurricanes are?". Now there's one coming up the east coast close to her. So I ask you, where could one relocate where you are not suceptable to snow storms, tornadoes, mud slides, forest fires, earthquakes, Herb, flooding, hurricanes, etc...? We tried to answer this question after hurricane katrina. Any thoughts? Thanks again everybody.
