I can't say I blame the companies, but you have bad weather no matter where you live. Blizzards and ice storms, tornadoes, floods. I think this whole country is getting out of hand. No, I'm not bashing the USA, but we sure need a lot of changes. Starting with lowering the GAS TAX!lehmannhenry said:so....move inland. I know, I know, its expensive. Quite frankly though, living near the cost brings a sh!t ton of risks, no matter what kind of coast it is. I like the water just as much as anyone, but I don't plan on living very close to the coast when i buy a house.
