I have one of those warnings on my computer. And I hear that you folks also had a tornado on top of everything else going on. I guess the next weather problem you haven't had yet is a blizzard. Boy, when you get weather problems, you get the big ones.

I don't know how much this comes up in California, but the federal government is changing the rules and increasing the rates for FEMA flood insurance. Past time, imo.
The powers that be, here in Mass. they are refusing to assist home owners who have built their homes so that their steps bring them right down to the beach and sand. With all the storms we have had these past years, a lot of the beaches have gotten washed away and now the homes and cottages are on the beach. A lot closer than a lot of them want to be. So now they want these little towns and the state to build barrier walls to protect their property. Those folks are telling the home owners, "Sorry, you knew what you were buying into." The town of Winthrop is spending an awful lot of money trucking truck load of sand day after day to replace what has been washed away over the years. None of it will benefit any of the homes. Only those people that go to the beach in the summer. There are Jersey Barriers down the middle of the road. The do help hold back most of the water when the waves wash over the beach wall. But not all of it.

I would hate to be paying their insurance rates right now.

I feel sorry for the kids in CAli. They don't even get snow days to build a snowman.
