During the storm we sit down to eat dinner and water starts dripping onto the dining room table. Worse yet, right onto MY DINNER. That really annoyed me. After setting up a small bucket and moving about two feet to the right, I finished my dinner and headed up into the attic to stop the leak. After about eight pounds (all I had) of putty the leak subsides. About three dry months later - new roof.
Now we've put up accordion shutters and, of course, there have been NO hurricanes (hrmph). Not that shutters will keep me from trying to get some shots if one heads this way. It'll just be a little more risky for me and not the house which, I suppose is good.
Here's the original image shot on 24 October 2005 right after the eye of Hurricane Wilma passed by just to the north:
