A good friend said that when he has to leave his cherished collectibles at home, when evacuating for hurricanes, he simply places them in plastic bags and ties up the bags so that they are basically sealed. I couldn't believe that I had never thought of doing something so smart and so simple. I left all of my precious items in cardboard boxes, which in the case of a flood or even just a small roof leak, would have been ruined. Just placing them in plastic garbage bags and tying up the end could have made the difference between saving them and losing them.
In the case of Katrina, where the homes were immersed in 10 feet of water for two weeks, plastic bags may not have saved anything, but at least it would have provided a chance!
