    Ah... yes, it was probably the best hotel in the city.

Our condo community here has no insurance, like so many others, but we are a distance from the water, so the risk is somewhat less.

    The insurance I have is issued by Clements Worldwide in Washington, DC. It is normally available to State Department Employees and Military members, active and retired, but may be available to the general public for U.S. Citizens.

Don't know how my apartment would have done if SD would have been hit by a Hurricane 5.

    I did weather out Hurricane David (Category 5) but that was in a solid concrete home off the Malecon drive in Santo Domingo that was built as a fortress by my father who was a Navy captain who had weathered many storms at sea. That time the storm blew the front doors open (double doors), but we huddled in the kitchen that was a step up in the house. Experience of a lifetime. Remember my father's plan B was to rope us all inside the second floor tower rooms in case the sea moved in. Fortunately, that was not necessary.

    Remember my sister wanting us to relocate far up hill to the Dominican Fiesta Hotel (don't remember its name at the time). Instead we stayed at our fortress. The Dominican Fiesta lost too many of its glass balcony doors in the rooms. So we ended up better off at home.

    I think it took six months to restore telephone service, and about three months to get power service back. Ice was a luxury for a long time.

    Insurance works well for electronics.
    That house would withstand a nuclear attack. One of my favorites in the city, believe it or not.

    Rottweiler? Might do better with some blue tarps in the hurricane...save the Rotty for the aftermath!
