I would think if you had some treated plywood, it would last for years, and you could cut and mark the squares for your windows. Hell, maybe make some brackets and a locking mechanisim so you can slide into place, lock and be done. Easy peasy.

Plywood warps and most people use it for other purposes over time. Even with the hurricane clips it's a PITA and takes time and strength. People that wait are just hoping they won't have a storm this season and figure if they do, deal with it then. Those are the unfortunate ones you see on the news running to get what is left of the plywood. If they do find it, most likely they won't still have it to use for multiple seasons. Some folks do store it well and take care of it. They have it marked for where it goes and even paint the names of storms they used it for on the boards.

The news does love to highlight those waiting to the last minute to buy supplies. It's not fun for them to show the many that have shutters, generator, gassed up vehicles and a house full of supplies.
OK, thanks. Actually, I would think a Kevlar style window/door cover would be better than mere plywood?

I agree but the costs would be too much for many people.

Whatever happened to that sinkhole that was eating everything a few years ago and everyone at GLP claimed it was going to eat all of Louisiana?

That was Bayou Corne. Suckin' down whole trees into the whirlpool. Nobody on ION claimed it was gonna eat all of Louisiana, but it definitely altered the landscape. A lot of folks packed up and left.

Yeah, just looked it up after I said that. It was big WOO WOO doom on GLP. People were claiming it was going to collapse all the oil factories down there and explode the whole Parrish. LOL, so much woo, so little doom.
