    Have you recovered from the storm last year? That was horrific.

    Tough to keep food cold w/out ice. (of course if you have a generator and fuel).

    Been a long time since SC has had a catastrophic type Hurricane. Watch a video on what Hurricane Michael did to Mexico city in Fla. That could not have been good for the lawn care business

    I honestly thought we were going to get the brunt of it here in Jax, but its a lot south. However, we are going to get tons of rain. Looks like I will mow Monday, Tues will be questionable, and looks like Wed & Thurs will be out of the question.

    Canned food needs no refrigeration.
    Spam, sardines, soups, beans, dry goods, jugs of water etc.

    You might be spared. Latest models shows it heading up the coast. Jax is in the path.

    Can you make any money in clean ups?? Is it primarily palm type trees down there or is there other various trees?

    Yes you can make Money in clean ups, trees, stumps, debris. All the roofers are lined up and waiting for roof jobs. People will come from northern states down here for months making money. Of course it depends on how bad it is.
