One of the best ways to minimize damage to your home during a hurricane is to cover your windows and doors with storm panels or shutters. There are many types available, but all require advance planning so they’re ready to go when a storm is heading your way.
Fabric storm panels, or wind abatement screens, are an innovative way to protect your windows, doors, and other openings from hurricane force wind and rain. They’re lightweight, easy to put up, allow you to see out, and are strong enough to stop flying projectiles.
There’s a farm where I live, where on Saturdays you can go buy vegetables as fresh as they come. Literally, the tractor pulls up from the field loaded with corn. Eager customers start grabbing, and the “cashier” is the farmer himself, calculating change without pen or paper. The summer’s bounty never looked better, and “eating your vegetables” suddenly seems like a treat.
