Isn't this number 3 and don't you have hurricane season every year?

I was touring a search engine facility in Fort Meyers, Florida. And they were bragging that the building was five stories tall and could deal with any flooding. It also had backup generators, etc. Those people must be pretty happy right now.

Actually, Ivan was upgraded to a category five. If it hits the US coast at that speed, it will be the fourth hurricane ever to do so. Cat fives are highly dangerous. It would make Frances look like a spring shower. Boy, Home Depot and Lowes gotta be some profitable businesses this summer.

I'm not saying who I visited, but if you live in Fort Myers, you know the building I'm talking about it ;) I hope everyone stays safe. This hurricane looks like bad.

Ain't that the truth - I've been to Home Depot 3-4 times a week since this started. Wish I'd had a camera when a new truckload of generators came in - all the checkout lines were nothing but generators! HD has done a good job of keeping the plywood deliveries flowing too, and their staff has been remarkably cool and helpful amidst the chaos.

True, even tying the sheets to the top of your car for free. I dislike large corps, but awesome job HD (and thank you for keeping the price down).
