Is it possible to use a masonary bit to drill into the conrete, then use plastic anchors to hold the screws?

Thanks. Friday everything was such a mess here - we tried drilling into the concrete and it just didn't work. My DH stopped in at HD and Lowe's and looked at the Ramsets - I think both stores rent the heavier equipment. Anyway, while he was in there he bought some new drill bits. Today we tested the new ones out - and they drilled into the concrete with no problem.
So - we know what the problem was and now have a Hurricane Kit complete with new drill bits and Tapcon screws, duct tape and plastic. That's just for the outside.
