Yeah, it depends on where you're at. We're getting dust from the Saraha right now also. It's kind of an annual thing. Our water temps are in the 80's, which is pretty typical this time of year. We also had a warm winter, so there's that. Our house is certified CAT 5. Not that it a guarantee, but at least we're not on a trailer with tires on the roof.
We feel like it's worrying about snow in CO in the high country. You know it's coming, you prepare for it, because it's never "if" but how many storms. Having been in the places I've been, I don't even have wet weather gear. I just consider it another layer to get in my way (and you're just going to get wet anyway). I do have boots we were issued that I also use as my dive boots and boat shoes. They're made to drain and dry quickly. And yes, they get wet quickly also.

South Florida - and by that I mean from Lake Okeechobee down - doesn't get hit by hurricanes nearly as much as the national news thinks. We're protected to some degree from Cuba and the surrounding islands that tend to break up storms or at least slow them down. But me? My place is safe as can be - I don't even bother to lock down the storm shutters anymore.
