I moved it from its normal parking place--the carport under our house on Ocracoke Island (NC Outer Banks) just before the storm surge went from 2 inches of water under the house to over two feet--in about about 20 minutes. The surge reached four feet deep under the house (it's 7 feeet up) and would have ruined the truck had I not moved it to a nearby ramp, all that remains of a WWII ammo bunker for the old Navy base on the island.

In all, over 400 cars were lost on the island--visitors as well as residents.
