Smart Thinking: Homeowner Straps House To Cars To Prevent It Blowing Away In Hurricane

September 17, 2018


This is a video from Civietown, North Carolina of a house that's been strapped to an old Plymouth and a Dodge truck, presumably to prevent it from getting blown away by Hurricane Florence. Plus they strapped a trampoline to the porch for extra fortification. Now there are good ideas and there are great ideas, and then there is pure genius. This is none of those.

Keep going for the video tour.

Thanks to HW, who agrees they should have parked the cars on top of the house.

    Did no one stop to think maybe he's trying to stop the cars and trampoline from being blown away?

    I'm sure that 550 paracord will hold it just fine...

    Or we could pay people enough that they could live in decent housing or have regulation as such that housing is safe to X_mph etc.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures..?

    And that guy sure sounds smug for a dude filming video vertically while driving.

    Please say you’d do it as a strap on wiener?!
