Planning for the weather is a big deal for the fishing trips and more important, your home. Everybody wants to have a great vacation experience or if you live here like myself, then there's a lot of things you need to do to prepare for the hurricane season. Remember that it is not just the hurricanes that cause problems with your home, it can be any storm that just whips up winds about forty miles an hour more which can happen just about any time down here on the islands. Summer is the time to worry about it as more than half of all named storms form in the months of August and September. This is not just about the waterfront homes, so don't assume your home is safe because you live inland and not right along the Shoreline. A storms high winds can wreck havoc everywhere in the Florida Keys and for sure something to be prepared for. It seems like everybody just worries about one thing, the windows and the doors. Those are not the only parts of your home at risk from high winds as the roof is the biggest thing to worry about especially if it's older and it wasn't secured properly. Roof braces are a big deal and it might be something that you look at the Home Depot to make your home safer. Talk to your insurance agent if you want to know how to get wind mitigation certification and inspection. Knowledge is your best protection so be prepared and you will have a happy summer fishing season enjoying the life of the Florida Keys.
Make sure you check the fishing report and fully get the wind report. Fishing is a big deal with the wind. I cannot go early, but am booked on the twoconchs.com fun time adventure. I have to wait for the big bomb of rain to pass, then we go.
