After I moved away from Louisiana, I was so happy to be able to ignore hurricanes.
Since 1996, I haven't really cared. I live in College Station, and this is generally far enough inland for me to not really worry about it.
Then, last summer came - with these huge, powerful storms. That one that hit Texas after Katrina was terrible. It was initially forecast to come on a bee-line for us. It ended up going further East and headed up to the Jasper area. That area is approx the same distance inland - and they got nailed pretty bad. So, now that I own a home, it does make me nervous.
