    Its crazy how many people think "the earth stays the same with no changes"

    I mean how blind do you have to be to not see change all around you ?

    Nothing in this world is constant... EXCEPT CHANGE !

    Heh.

    My house in Ft. Myers was 11 feet above sea level, yet flood insurance wasn’t mandatory. Each rainy season and hurricane my street and yard flooded, once I had water splashing over my front step. How we didn’t have water seeping up through the floor boards is beyond me.
    So I run away from life and move to the mountains, and the damndest thing is...my bank makes flood insurance mandatory.
    ... reason being I live in a valley, surrounded by streams, that lead to a dammed river, that becomes a lake in the summer.

    You anywhere near Camp David?
    A friend of mine (long passed) used to tell me a story, of when his brother,
    a Ranger, used to do hikes from Camp David.
    He had hiked about 3 days, when he ran across a door in the side of a mountain.
    It was kinda hidden with overgrowth, said he almost didn't see it.
    He went inside, it was a big hall cave, that went back into the mountain.
    He told his brother, there was a big long table, a type of kitchen area,
    and even a few mugs, lamps, and some supplies laying around.
    It went on back, even deeper, too.

    He left, and was never able to find it again, after that.
    Perhaps our Founding Fathers, had their own little "Camp David",
    tucked back in the mountain side.
    It's still there, untouched, so heads up, when you out and about
    if you anywhere within a 3 day hike of CD.

ID:	1827405 at 13 feet above sea level I live in an x zone and probably the highest point in the keys. I have never had more than a half inch of rain water around the house. Hurricane Irma ravaged the lower parts of my neighborhood but we were left high and dry as the water surged around the island. I will always be an islander even if I have to live like my Indonesian brothers !!

    Ps. I've also been a fisherman all my life commercial and charter......fishing is just fine down here. Fishing on the sport boat recreationally we had 4 days of mutton snapper limits. That's 10 a day for 4 days in a row. We averaged 2-6 sailfish a day during that bite. A keywest captain caught 60 sailfish in one day last week. I'm pretty sure that's a record. Problem is the keys are closed to tourists and not many people are fishing except us locals for fun !!

    The only issue with flooding in Florida has nothing to do with global warming. It has to do with idiots wanting to live right on the waters edge then cry every time a storm or flood damages their home. People move here daily from other areas and if they have bucks they got to live on the water. I Live on an island 3 blocks from the beach. I choose to do so knowing a hurricane could wipe me out. I could move inland or god forbid out of state. If my place goes away that's nature and I'll figure something out. I don't expect anyone to come running to give me a new house or blame global warming. The earth warms and cools in natural cycles and always will. Crying like chicken little will do no good. Doing some research on where you're gong to build/buy a house will.

    Well said !! I was happy to get a house 2 blocks from the water on the highest point of land. Short walk to the water and in an x zone I'm not required to have flood insurance. And choosing wisely as I did I've saved thousands on flood insurance.....and never had a flood !

    I've been out of the commercial Florida fishing game for 35 years, and I'm sure that a few Key West Captains have an occasional good day and are doing "fine", but the multi generational Floridian commercial Fishing and shrimping companies in Tarpon Springs, Port Canavaral and Miami have been devastated.
    Caucasians fished, shrimped and purchased wholesale from other Fisherman for Generations and now they are gone.
    They have been replaced by corporate franchised seafood restaurants that are there to end serve the upper middle class public. They buy their "fresh" shrimp from farms in Ecuador.
    The original major wholesale seafood houses are ALL gone.

    This place is often billed as the wealthiest zipcode in America, but htey were amongst the absolute first to recieve SBA PPP relief.

    Un frigging believable.... 2 million dollars within hours of the programs conception.
    2.4 million dollars yearly averrage occupant salary.
    Most small businesses havn'y and won't ever recieve a dime of intended relief.

    Think the decks are slightly stacked?

    Nation’s richest ZIP code received a $2M PPP loan.
    HOA asked residents for feedback

    Fisher Island (Credit: Fisher Island)

    UPDATED, April 27, 9:35 a.m.: Fisher Island’s homeowners’ association was approved to receive a $2 million loan through the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program, but residents voted to reject the loan late Friday.
    The $349 billion PPP program was created by Congress to help small businesses, providing loans of up to $10 million to cover rent, mortgage interest, utilities and payroll. It was unclear how the Fisher Island association would have used the $2 million.

    Fisher Island, the nation’s wealthiest ZIP code, recently made headlines when it purchased 1,800 rapid Covid-19 blood test kits for all its residents and workers, spending $30,600 at a time when testing is limited, according to the Miami Herald.
    The exclusive island can only be reached by ferry, boat or helicopter.
    The island’s homeowners’ association, which oversees about 20 smaller associations, met on Friday at 5 p.m. to review feedback from its residents about accepting the $2 million loan, the Miami Herald reported.
