I thought we might be in for a big one with Gustav. It sputtered out within spitting distance of where we live.  It stresses the importance of documenting your personal valuables. Even if you do not have insurance, you may want to do it for tax purposes. If you do not have some kind of camera. Writing down with as much as detail as possible item descriptions and serial numbers in a simple spiral notebook can be very important. Thall shalt document. If you are lucky enough to have a computer system, consider getting some kind webcam or computer friendly camera. Even a scanner and Polaroid camera (I wish the film was not so expensive) can be excellant for keeping track of what is important to you.  Take pictures of everyting you can. You can always store what you collect on the web. then if you lose everything, there should still be a record to use for insurance and or tax purposes.
