  I sure hope you're right.

  No problems here yet, thank heaven.  I specifically chose this house
because it has no conformity enforcement committee ("homeowners
association") or other such nonsense, and it's in an area where people
generally don't give a shit about what people do with their own
property.  Of course, this area has other problems, but at least there
are no hobbyless busybodies telling me what I should and should not be

  But for other reasons, now that you mention it, it IS becoming "time
to move".  The rapidly deteriorating weather from the climate change
that isn't happening, and the soon-to-be-toxic beaches due to BP's
"safety first!" oil well procedures are making me take a hard look at
real estate prices.
