What is up with this? Don't people in the northeast insure their

property? I went through Frances & Jeanne - back to back and didn't have anyone's help except friends & neighbors. Does this mean I can save a couple grand a year and cancel my insurance?

God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it. – Daniel Webster
