Let's hope that the wave of flood-insurance cancellations haven't already left those folks without coverage! The people in NH seem to have borne the brunt of the flood-damage, although some of the tourist destinations in southern Maine have suffered enough flood damage to lead to a rash of cancellations - their business will be off a bit this year, since the tourist season traditionally starts around Memorial Day, and they've got less than 2 weeks to clean out, dry out, replace damaged walls and flooring, and restock.

We have been really lucky in the past few decades not to have a hurricane swing up and hit us squarely. If a big one should come in during a high tide (our tides can be pretty dramatic, especially Down East) the storm surge, tide, and torrential rain would make last weekend look like a walk in the park.
