Hi, PennyN, we're happy that you did not get flooded out from
Floyd. Driving around locally yesterday we found all sorts of
new parkway drainage projects underway, since this past
hurricane had people moving about in zodiaks (rubber boats
with portable motors).  At least it does keep the money moving......

You answered my primary question, which was did my climate
at coastal New York City and my hurricane attacks, match yours, 
in coastal Nova Scotia. I guess it certainly does....  

Not only North Carolina but also New Jersey has suffered
dramatically from the excess in water. We're in N.J. weekly,
and they are now ready to begin flood control -- TEN years after
they were beaten down by a hurricane, and should have done
something..! What short sightedness... 

It's quite like my daughter on the Mississippi at St.Louis.  The
day before that absolutely awful flooding of a few years back, she 
bought a tiny heirloom house right on the river's edge. Need I say
more...? I don't see where they are doing anything at all to prevent
another territory-wide flooding like that one. It would be difficult, 
but must be feasible.
