Thanks for the timely letter on Hurricane Preparedness Steps by Florida Dave. Unfortunately, I am by necessity working on that checklist this week.
I’d recommend adding a couple of items to his list:
At 48 hours before landfall, when securing important papers and photos, I suggest that video or photos of the contents and exterior of the home be recorded for insurance purposes.
Also, at 24-to-10 hours out, super shock your swimming pool if you have one. (A swimming pool is a great resource if power and water go out for a few days.)
