I live along the Anclote River near Tarpon Springs, FL, and up until about 10 years ago, has only flooded once in about 1972. For whatever reason, since I've moved here, It's flooded twice, Once up to my Knees, and again up to my Ankles.
If the water comes no further than 18 inches in the Mancave, which is on the first floor, everything will be okay, but if it comes up higher than that, either I have to raise the games up more, which isn't much of an option, or, have some contingency that if I know a hurricane is coming, I roll all the games into a Uhaul, and head for higher ground. At least in a Uhaul, I can move them. In the garage, I'm limited by the roof. The Uhaul will double as a storage facility for the few days it takes for the water to receed. It's doubtful that insurance would be interested in compensating someone completely for a loss like that, and, as we all know there are man personal feelings tied up in our collections. I guess I feel like I should take out SOME form of life insurance, or plan, for them, they're almost like my babies!!
If anyone has any other suggestions I'm game. I even thought of possibly putting some sort of leg extenders on the games.. If I only needed another foot or something, that idea might work, but more than 2 feet, and the game is going to hit the ceiling with the top folded down as well as likely become top heavy and unstable at some point.
This is what happened this time around.
