Florida Storms

Post by milspec6 on Sun Sep 10, 2017 9:50 am

I wonder how Kevin is doing in this mess?  Hope he is okay.

Although it might be too early to look for silver linings to this monster hurricane, but I can't help but see 2 really big ones.

1.  Construction and auto sales are going to go through the roof for about 2 years.  Lots of work and lots of money to be made in a area that has been very slow the last couple of years.  The economy will be roaring in 2018 and hopefully that will be a very good thing for cleaners like Kevin.

2.  People with a metal detector are going to get rich on those beaches.  With the hundreds of undiscovered ship wrecks in that area being heavily churned up from this monster storm, there is bound to be a lot of new debris and discoveries to hit shore.  That would fascinate me to no end and I am tempted to move down there myself just for that.

As miserable as things are right now in that region, as long as you got out before it hit land you are only going to lose stuff.  Homes have been built to withstand Cat 5 storms ever since Hurricane Andrew struck so most of the homes will structurally withstand it.  The flooding to follow might damage a lot of the property left behind, but in the end it is just stuff and will be replaced with more stuff in short time.

I hope all remain safe and bounce back quickly.  These major storms hit about every 12 years, so they will not likely see another season like this one for at least a decade.  A very prosperous and wonderful decade.

Best of luck to all of them....especially the cleaners, hold on gang.

I doubt the window cleaners will be bouncing back quickly. They might have to take a "job" doing cleanup and construction for a bit.

If I remember correctly Kevin is from southport north carolina, close to the south Carolina border. He should be ok. My wife and I are in Myrtle Beach South Carolina now on vacation, lot of wind so far. Calling for rain tomorrow and wind

That's right, he was farther up North. His absence lately had me thinking he was in the Northern Florida area. I would imagine "rain and wind" will be the forecast for most of the week.

When there is a flood recovery, part of the process is cleaning the carpet even if it was just replaced. Don't they do the same for windows? If not, maybe they should.

I had to do a double take when you said "economy will be roaring in 2018".
I sure hope you are right, restoration work is booming now in Texas, I was wondering if it's worth it for you to drive from Nebraska to Texas to take some pieces of those pies ?
I think there will be more restoration work in Texas than Florida because Irma is fast moving hurricane, unlike Harvey, plus like you said, Florida homes can withstand cat 5 storm.
I agree, windows cleaning should be included but can you imagine insurance company's adjusters balk at the request after paying out $ 100 k check to the restoration company Razz

There is no doubting that prediction, Texas and the Gulf Coast will be one giant hot-bed of economy during the rebuild for at least 2-3 years. I worked the Katrina recovery for a little bit and it was a gold rush for rock quarries, truckers, and mold companies.

It might be worth it to relocate and work for a franchise company for the winter in either location. I have already made some calls to see who might be looking for staff.

Bob, would you please let me know if you do ? I'd be interested to see that opportunity as well.
