  Florida had a (waaaay) below average of hurricanes during the 70s, 80s and
90s. When Mom and I moved to South Florida in 1979, we were there less than a
month before Hurricane David threatened the area, only to turn north at the
last minute. Then ... nothing until Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Then ...
nothing until Hurricane Irene in 1999.

  It took me living here 20 years before I experienced two hurricanes---my
girlfriend's kids took less than 2 years before experiencing two hurricanes.
Only now are we getting to above average hurricane activity (at least in
South Florida) so *now* perhaps we'll see better built homes.

  Or homes for sale *real cheap* (which doesn't bother me in the slightest).
