    Eight Corvettes fell into the sinkhole, with five sustaining severe damage. Among these five were a 1984 PPG Indy Car World Series Pace Car, a one-off 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, a 1993 40th Anniversary coupe, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06, and a 2009 C6 Convertible; which was the 1.5 millionth Chevrolet Corvette produced. Despite GM’s initial pledge to do so, none of these cars were able to be fully restored after being removed from the sinkhole.

    The earlier forecast was landfall in Tampa, not Fort Myers. Then the Panhandle, then north of Tampa, then Tampa. That's a big difference. Furthermore, forecast tracks aren't solid and things change. It becomes a risk versus reward game and also an issue of the boy who cried wolf. When Irma struck, it originally was planned to make landfall on the east coast and folks fled to the west coast. Guess where it struck? The west coast. For folks that haven't gone through them, you really don't have a solid forecast until about the 12 hour mark and even then they change.

    Andrew was originally forecasted to hit Miami, literally under an 8 hour window before landfall it shifted south and struck Homestead.

    That means you can't really move stuff. Because for every storm. 9 out of 10 times, it'll be a boy who cried wolf and that costs money.

    "Socialist ideology, like so many others, has two main dangers. One stems from confused and incomplete readings of foreign texts, and the other from the arrogance and hidden rage of those who, in order to climb up in the world, pretend to be frantic defenders of the helpless so as to have shoulders on which to stand." - José Martí - Cuban Statesman & Patriot
