    Default Hurrican demonstration

    An architect friend sent this tonight. It's the price of living in Paradise. But I do think about it sometimes; like from June to November.

    Great animation, except ...

    That had the house roof covering staying on longer than it really does, and it had the roof staying on longer than it really does, and the widows and doors did not blow in like they really do.

    But, if you've never been in or seen the aftermath of a hurricane, that is an eye opener.

    I thought I saw the windows and door blown out around the 120mph area on the slide bar. Door is blown out to the side corner of the house.

    Hope to never see one.
