So what. I've seen the same Breyer's ice cream selling for $3.50, $4.99, or $6.49. I buy items at each store but get my icecream at the cheapest.
I'd also have to congratulate the owner of McCoy for caring enough about his employees to save them some material instead of just selling it to the highest bidder. Sounds like a great guy to work for.
If you live in a hurricane area, you should have that material in the garage, ready for any storm. IMO the people lined up buying plywood last minute are idiots.
Kudos to Mr. McCoy.

Well, I generally agree with you except, one can assume if a customer lives in a hurricane area, that the store employees likely live there as well, so they should also have the material in their garage ready for any storm. So, if the customer is an idiot (in your opinion), then the company employees are idiots as well.

It blew away :o) We did plywood one year (we were young then :o) . No garage. Stored outdoors until the carpenter ants took it away. Have hurricane shutters now. My area hasn't had a direct hit from a hurricane since the twenties - long time to store plywood. H'canes don't follow US 10 every year :o)
