If you live in south - central Florida, now is probably a good time to consider your moving options. It’s just getting worse and worse there in terms of hurricanes.

The storm struck Florida's Gulf Coast on Wednesday, turning beach towns into disaster areas.

On The NY Times website they’ve shown before/after photos of those beaches. In each case, the deep ruts in the beach where the water rushed in and out from the surge are along the worn footpaths in the dunes that waterfront owners have cut over the years.

Where the dunes were not cut up by footpaths, they still took a beating but a lot of the vegetation helped hold the dune together. Intact dunes helped reduce the water velocity coming in and out. When Florida ‘builds back better’ they should require boardwalks that go over the dunes and leave the protective plants and sand barrier intact between homes, cottages and hotels and the beach.

Seen some videos of people heading out to the Pier to watch the Hurricane come ashore, Darwin award nominee's I guess. Also for those remaining behind, Crocodiles and even a Shark swimming along the now flooded streets.. so that man carrying a flag best tread carefully.

Alright, Floridians. Time to put your money where you mouth is. DeSantis opposed using federal money to aid the Northeast after Sandy, so I better hear about how you all graciously turned down federal aid in the name of “fiscal responsibility”. Because remember, federal aid is literally Marxism.
