Well, we had no trouble with storms and the like. I dunno if we just got lucky, or what. It is very hot though, so be sure to get a unit with AC (fan just wont cut it in the summer). Bugs were a problem, tho. Lots of 'em. I understand that it is hit or miss with the bugs, but it was really unbearable for us. At dusk, it was very hard to sit outside b/c you were contantly being bitten. But hey.... the rates are a lot cheaper!
