We have an old house. The first parts of it were built in the 1930's with additions here and there. It sits on cinder blocks and the storm surge from Ike almost got in. The beauty of the place is that it is surrounded by tall bamboo and trees outboard of that which make an excellent wind break. If our house was sitting exposed on the beach, it would have blown away long ago.
